HARTA-Ween Zombie Dash is October 13

Posted: Thursday, August 9, 2018

Join HARTA for the 2nd Annual HARTA-Ween Zombie Dash on Saturday, October 13 at Yeoman Park and experience the Erie Trail firsthand. The race is open to all ages. Participants may choose a 5K or the newly added 10K route and a one-mile loop is available for non-competitive participants. Proceeds and contributions from the event will go toward supporting the development and maintenance of trails in Huntington County.

The participant’s goal is to complete the 10K, 5K, or one-mile loop with as many lives left on their life belt as possible. Zombies will appear on the trail and will try to snatch away their lives. Participants may choose to walk or run the race and may opt out of the zombie-snatching. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

Each paid entry receives a T-shirt, finisher medal and a swag bag. The top male and female finishers for the 10K and 5K event will receive additional awards. Awards will also be given to event volunteers for best zombie costume. Halloween costumes are encouraged for race participants as well. Pre-paid registration fee is $10 for students (with valid student ID, available at checkout); $15 for an individuals and $40 for a family of five with each additional person $8.
