The Kankakee Area Jaycees and The AshleyCan Foundation present the First Annual "The Running Dead" Zombie 5K. Come as you are or dress as a zombie. Humans will get a 20 Second head start. After 20 seconds, the zombies will be released, and will try to catch up to the humans and take their "life". Humans will receive 3 name tags (lives) which they will place on their back. If all 3 name tags (lives) are taken away by 3 different zombies, their score will not count at the finish line.
Extra lives will be hidden throughout the course. Prizes go to fastest humans, zombies with the most killings, and best dressed zombies. Proceeds will go to benefit the Kankakee Area Jaycees and the AshleyCan Foundation to raise awareness of pediatric cancer.
