Several runs were held recently with Halloween themes. Many of the runs, such as the Zombie Run in Edgerton and Boo Run Run in Napoleon, were new additions to race schedules this year. The races helped individuals get some exercise as well as in the Halloween spirit while benefiting various causes and organizations.
The Zombie Run was held on Oct. 12 by the Edgerton Athletic Boosters at Miller Park. Participants ran a 3.1-mile obstacle course while being chased by “zombies.” Individuals portraying the zombies tried to grab three flags the participants had. Those who lost their flags were “infected” while those who had at least one flag when they passed the finish line received a survivor award.
Another Halloween themed run was the Monster Dash 5K sponsored by First Federal Bank and benefitting the American Cancer Society. The walk was held on Oct. 19 at Independence Dam State Park.
One other Halloween themed run was held Saturday. The Boo Run Run raced along West Main Street in Napoleon. It was sponsored by Dave’s Running. Proceeds from the event benefit the Napoleon Civic Center.
