Run for your lives - Zombie 5K

Friday, Oct. 26, 9 a.m.-11 a.m., Hall of Champions Fitness Center, Baumholder

Zombies have infested Smith Barracks and they’re coming for you on the Baumholder Sports and Fitness 5k Fun Run Course. Come in your Halloween costume, or dress as a zombie so they think you're one of them!

The race begins and ends beside Hall of Champions Fitness Center.

The Great Pumpkin 5K Run/Walk

Date: Oct 27, 3 p.m., Patch Fitness Center, Patch Barracks Building 2337

“The Pumpkin Run” is an annual Halloween themed fun run that starts in front of the Patch Fitness Center and proceeds inside Patch Barracks for 5 kilometers and finishing back in front of the Patch Fitness Center. A race clock will be set up at the finish line allowing runners to track their finishing times.  Water, Gatorade, and fruit will be at the finish line for hydration. This race is pet, child, and stroller friendly. This is not a timed race.

The Pumpkin Run route is 5 kilometers in distance. Route is lined with course marshals and directional signs to ensure runners find their way around the course. There is a water and medic point at the start/finish line. MPs & Medics will lead and follow runners to ensure they do not veer off of the course and to assist runners when needed.

Lace up those shoes, grab your best costume and have fun!
