Whether you’re dressed like the zombie crowd or running from them, registration begins at 1 p.m. with the event kicking off at 3 p.m. with runners able to expect plenty of scares along the way.

“There’s no telling what may happen with the presidential election this November, so we figured it may be a good idea to practice for the zombie apocalypse now,” joked Karli Bockelman, Moffat County director of Grand Futures.

About 50 people ran the race last year, and organizers are hoping for an even bigger turnout of runners this time.

The cost is $15 for individual adults, $7 for ages 5 to 18 and free to 4 and younger. Teams of five are $50, and prizes will go to the most creative group.
