Henderson, Nev. – Halloween comes early in Henderson this year. The city celebrates the holiday with the Zombie Run 5K, scheduled for 6 p.m. on Oct. 21 at Cornerstone Park, 1600 Wigwam Pkwy. Registration starts at $35 per person through Oct. 20, with day-of registration $40 per person.

This is the fourth year the City of Henderson has hosted the non-competitive fun run that is open to people of all abilities and fitness levels. The event features a course that takes participants around the lake at Cornerstone Park. Along the way, runners and walkers, who are encouraged to dress up in Halloween costumes, may encounter a few surprises before they cross the finish line.

Run packets may be picked up between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Oct. 19 at Whitney Ranch Recreation Center, 1575 Galleria Dr., or from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. the day of the event at the park. The first 300 registered participants will receive a Zombie Run 5K commemorative T-shirt.

The Zombie Run 5K is part of the City of Henderson’s Healthy Henderson initiative. The fitness, health and wellness program rewards members who participate in fitness-related classes, workshops and events such as the 5K run, or use recreation facilities to work out. Customized membership packages are available for purchase at any of the city’s six recreation centers and Heritage Park Senior Facility.

Those interested in participating in this year’s Zombie Run 5K can register online or in person at one of the city’s recreation centers. Use activity code 154221-58. They can also sign up on Active.com.
