MEDINA COUNTY, Ohio — The Run for Your Life Zombie Run is returning to Medina County.

The  5K Run for Your Life Zombie Run will be held Saturday, October 18, at 4 p.m. at Buckeye Woods.

Pre-registration is $20 per runner and $25 the day of the race, and $10 for “zombies”. Those registering as “zombies” must pay $15 to include a t-shirt.

During the run, each runner or walker will receive three flags representing “lives” a participant has left. While running or walking, participants must avoid zombies and preserve their flags to prevent “infection.”

The first person to cross the finish line with at least one flag will be declared the winner, and medals will be awarded to all top finishers.

All proceeds from the 5K Run for Your Life Zombie Run benefit Project: LEARN’s adult and family literacy and tutoring programs in Medina County.
