Zombie 5k run

Zombies invaded town yesterday, May 31st, for the annual Zombie 5k run.       
More than 1500 runners took part in the zombie apocalypse, being chased by 300 zombies

Runners ran in an obstacle course and had flags tied around their waste.
The goal was to try to make it through the course without loosing all your flags.

If you lost all of them---then you were infected.
"So what we find is the folks working as teams tend to be the ones who come across as survivors more frequently. Where we get those super athletes, those weekend warriors who love to sprint it out and use all of that competitive edge...Surprisingly they come up infected."

The run benefits Smile Train, which is a charity that helps pay for cleft lip and palate surgeries for children in developing countries.
The goal of each run is to raise money to support at least three of these surgeries.
