JUNEAU - Run for your life! Juneau's first Zombie 5K, intended to be an annual event, dares you to make it out alive.
Registration and instructions start at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 27 at Sandy Beach on Douglas Island. Kids 1-mile fun run starts at 9 a.m., the 5K at 9:30 a.m. The race starts at Sandy Beach and continues out Treadwell Trail. Pre-registration as a zombie or runner is at Pavitt Health and Fitness, Nugget Alaskan Outfitter, or on race day. Cost is $15 for adults, $5 for youth. The goal is to get a strong turnout of kids in Halloween costumes who want to act like a zombie.
The Zombie 5K is a fundraiser for the Kids Triathlon Club.
