Get ready to run for your lives – the second annual Nightmare On Elm Street Run will be held in Downtown Rogers Nov. 1, 2014!
Activities will begin at 1:30 p.m. Nov. 1 at the Frisco Park Stage on Second Street in Downtown Rogers.
Runners will be darting past zombies during the Zombie 5K at 4:30 p.m. All runners will be “alive” at the beginning of the race. If you make it to the finish line without being touched by a zombie and becoming one of the Running Dead, you get a prize!
All 5K runners will receive a goody bag and t-shirt if signed up by the race day; additional shirts can be purchased at the event.
Now, if you want to play it safe, there is a one-mile fun run at 4 p.m. Also, there will be zombie makeovers between 1:30-4:30 p.m.
And wear your costumes! Because there will be a costume contest! Prizes will be awarded for best runner costume and best team!
You can register and get info on prices here. Proceeds from the run will go to benefit the Rogers Optimist Club.
