The Running Dead 5K Race takes place today

Conway, SC (WMBF) – Today, Coastal Carolina University students are hosting a Running Dead Race.

The 2nd Annual Running Dead 5K Race will be held Saturday, November 1ST, at 4:30 p.m. at the Hulk Trail on Frontage Road B-2 in Myrtle Beach.

CCU Recreation and Sport Management students plan the 5K race as a fun and challenging “run for one's life” that takes place during the “zombie apocalypse” and all proceeds from the race will benefit their program.

Runners will make their way through Hulk Trail trying to avoid “zombies” in hopes of making it to the finish line without getting “afflicted”, or having their flag football belts pulled by the zombies.

In addition to CCU's Recreation and Sport Management Programming and Even Planning class, the event is also sponsored by the Horry County Parks and Recreation Department and the Grand Strand Running Club.

Participates of the 5K race will receive a T-shirt and the first fifty participants will receive a medal. Awards will be given to both “living” and “afflicted” runner and an after party will be held at Longbeard's Bar & Grill at 5040 Carolina Forest Boulevard.

To get to Hulk Trail, turn onto Carolina Forest Boulevard off U.S. 501. At the end of Carolina Forest Boulevard, turn right onto River Oaks Drive. Go 1/8 of a mile under the overpass and make an immediate left onto Frontage Road B-2. Drive down this road for about two miles, and Hulk Trail is on the right side of the road, right before the overpass.
