Participate, if you dare, in the freakishly fun 5K Zombie Mud Run and obstacle course Saturday, May 5, on the Peninsula College Port Angeles campus. The fourth annual event offers exciting challenges for participants of all ages.
“You do not have to be, ‘in it to win it,’ to enter these races, simply come enjoy a day of challenging obstacles, crawling through the mud and running away from the undead,” said Jeremiah Johnson, assistant athletic director and activities coordinator. “Some of this year’s obstacles include our 14-foot-high climbing wall, Zombie-infested forests, mud pits, a water tank, crawls, over-unders and our signature 65ft waterslide to the finish line.” The adult course consists of seven zombie zones and 12 challenging obstacles.
The Run features something for everyone:
