Zombie Invasion 5K to be held Saturday

A fundraiser for the Central Coast Autism Spectrum Center will blend sports and zombies at Camp San Luis Obispo on Saturday.

The Zombie Invasion 5K is a fun run that will include a series of optional man-made obstacles.

Each participant will be given a set of flags before the race, representing their health. Zombies throughout the course will chase down participants to steal their flags. If the zombies get all your flags, they win.

Three colors of flags will be available so that people of all abilities can participate. The zombies will then know which participants to go easy on. People who cross the finish line with a flag will be entered into a prize raffle.

Start times are staggered every 30 minutes, starting at 10 a.m. and ending at 1 p.m.

The cost is $35 to run the course or $25 to participate as a zombie.

The Central Coast Autism Spectrum Center offers programs and services for children and adults with autism on the Central Coast.
