When the Zombie apocalypse is here, there is only one thing you can do: Run!
Come and Join Union City Community and Recreation Services as they host their annual Running Dead 5k/10k Fun Run & Walk this fall. Run for fun, or run for your life by entering into the Zombie Challenge in which participants try to dodge Zombies along the trail and stay alive by protecting their flags on the way to the finish line. Come back with both flags on your hips and you will get entered into a raffle to win a cool prize!
