Runners Fight Zombies For Cause

The CHAPS 5K Zombie Run was held Saturday. Runners had to run through various "Zombie Zones" and try to preserve their "lives" as they ran through the zombie horde. Zombies were shuttled to the various zones via the Sheridan Trolley, and waited for the runners as they tried to grab as many of their "lives" as they could.
