About This Activity

Project: LEARN's 5K Zombie Run is back for a fourth year of ghoulish fun!  Runners and walkers are invited to traverse our spooky 5K course while avoiding the zombies strategically stationed along the way.  Not a runner, but love to dress in costume? Have some pre-Halloween fun with us by registering as a zombie and dressing up in full zombie regalia!  NEW THIS  YEAR: Bring the kids for a family fun run!  We are hosting a 1-mile(ish!) Zom-Wee race at 3pm.  Kids and adults can be in costume or not, get some fresh air and exercise, and all kids 14 and under will receive a reusable tote bag with candy as their prize for finishing.  Fall fun in Medina County--hope to see you there!

If you can't participate this year, you can still use the Active.com registration to make a donation to Project: LEARN (our official name is Literacy Council of Medina County)! All donations stay right here in Medina County, supporting adult learners and tutors with free materials and training to achieve their goals, whether it be learning to read for the first time, learning English as a second language, or passing the GED.

Online registration will be open from now until October 1st.  You can still register on the day of the event, but you may not get a shirt if you don't pre-register before the October 1st deadline. For the 1 mile-ish fun run, cost is $10 per runner ($15 day of race; $18 if the fun run racer wants a t-shirt). For on-site registration for the 5k, please arrive by 3pm to assure on-time registration.  Cost is $25 for 5K runners ($30 day of race), $10 for zombies ($18 if the zombie wants a t-shirt).
