Brave runners will face zombies at annual USC Aiken race

October 26, 2017 GMT

Zombies will descend on the USC Aiken Pacer Path, near the Convocation Center, at 6 p.m. Friday for the second 2-mile Zombie Run.

The event will benefit USCA’s women’s cross-country team.

The event is open to runners ages 8 and older from across the Aiken-Augusta area and especially fans of the TV show, “The Walking Dead.” Runners between the ages of 8 and 16 must be accompanied by a guardian due to the scary nature of the event.

The race will begin officially when the zombies are “released” and start chasing the brave runners.

The cost is $20 for adults, $10 for faculty/staff and free to USCA students.

Chuck Foster of Edward Jones is helping sponsor the run.
