Zombie Run to Take Over Roanoke County

Posted: Updated:

This weekend the zombie apocalypse will take over Roanoke County, but these undead are more interested in racing for a good cause than eating brains.

Saturday, Oct. 5, is the Zombie 5K Run, which benefits Virginia's Special Olympics.

Our sister station CW5 is the official sponsor.

Participants can sign up to either be runners or zombies for the race through Green Hill Park.

If you chose to be one of the undead, make up roll call is at 9 a.m. The race kicks off at 10 a.m.
