Fourth Annual Zombie Run Held in Charlottesville

Posted: Updated:

Zombies emerged at dawn Sunday morning to gobble up some humans on the downtown mall in Charlottesville for the fourth annual Zombie Run.

Participants either came dressed as zombies or as humans.

The humans got a 90-second head start in the race and tried to outrun zombies in order to survive. If a zombie took a human's red tag - which symbolized blood - it meant they became a zombie too.

"What other excuse do you have when you are an adult to dress up like a zombie and go chase people and have fun like it's Halloween?" asked zombie runner Kurt Siefken.

A crowd cheered runners who survived to cross the finish line. There were also awards - including one for the zombie with the most kills.
