LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Zombies took over Iroquois Park and hundreds of runners ran for their lives while participating in the annual Zombie Run.
The three-mile, post apocalyptic course featured a flipped tanker which supposedly contained toxic chemicals.
Runners wore two life balloons that dozens of zombies tried to pop which was the equivalent of eating their brains.
“My wife got me into this; she’s actually one of the runners. We’re just having fun with it,” participant Merle Nalder said.
Runners were treated to a post-quarantine party.
The Zombie Run benefits the Active Heroes Organization which provides assistance to military families here in Kentuckiana.
