Dash in the Dark: Zombie 5k

The Utah State University Botanical Center will host its first ever Dash in the Dark 5k on Friday, October 24. The fun run will take place at the USUBC, 920 South 50 West, Kaysville.

Participants will have the opportunity to jog through the USUBC garden trails, around ponds and through the center’s arboretum while being chased by infectious zombies. This event is open to all ages 12 years old or above and welcomes those of any athletic ability.

“We want everyone to know that this is a fun run,” said Jayne Mulford, event coordinator. “This is a great way to celebrate the Halloween season with friends and neighbors.”

Tickets are on sale now for early registration at $12. Registration will be $15 starting the week of the event. The first 50 registered runners will receive a free headlamp.

The race will begin at 6 p.m. and an award ceremony follows. For those interested in playing zombies, please contact Mulford at
