Hundreds of runners were asked this morning to navigate a 5K course filled with zombies at Darien Lake Theme Park.
The rUNDEAD race was held to benefit Special Olympics and organized and supported by volunteers from throughout WNY, including a collection of zombies near the finish line who a part of the same group in Tonawanda.
Each runner was issued three flags. Those who managed to make it through the course with at least one flag was eligible for a prize. The zombies, rather than seeking the brains of runners, were hungry for flags.
Speed seemed essential when a runner needed to sprint through a gauntlet of zombies.

Zombies thrive on scaring people. It's what they're just dying to do.
Gee, I wish a lot more of them freaks would die just so they could make some other people/voters happy IN LIFE! I am NOT gonna mention any names but one live is a huge white house not in NY State.. lol

I've had the pleasure of working with Greg, Arlowe and the rest of Terror Technologies at past events, and was pleased to see that they were participating in the event. They do a great deal of charity work in the Buffalo community, frequently raising resources for the Food Bank of WNY as well as donations to Make a Wish foundation and organizing blood drives for the Red Cross.
