Everybody seems to LOVE zombies these days! Everywhere you look, books, television, movies, and video games, the undead are totally topping the charts. It’s all in good fun, right? This year on September 14th, you can bring your Zombie love one step closer to reality by signing up for the Lake Eerie Zombie Mud Run.
The Lake Eerie Zombie Mud Run is a 5K obstacle challenge along the shores of Lake Erie complete with mud, zombies, scares and fun. Before the race runners will be given a belt with 3 flags (like flag football) that represent their health. The Zombies will take the flags and “infect” the runners. The object is to finish the race with at least one flag and survive.
Legend has it…
There is an eerie legend that is believed to be true along the shores of Lake Erie. In 1907 an island existed at coordinates N41°25.488’ W082°38.400’ – the same coordinates as the race starting line. Today this land known as East Sandusky Bay Metropark. It is believed to be uninhabited and over grown with vegetation. Almost a century ago the island was possessed by witches who turned 108 men, women and children into zombies by killing and possessing their bodies in order to force it into slave labor. At nightfall swarms of zombies would breakout into the water hunting for freedom. Infecting those on land once they reached shore. The zombie population began to grow to numbers unknown – for more visit http://www.lakeeeriezombiemudrun.com/about-the-race/legend-has-it/
