St. Louis Zombie Run at Queeny Park

The Zombie Run took over Edgar M. Queeny Park just west of Town And Country in St. Louis County on Sunday, July 14, 2013. Racers were faced with a 3.1 mile course with "zombie" volunteers tasked with popping a "life-balloon" worn by the runners. If the balloon pops, the runner is "infected." From the organizers: "But if you’re not fast, don’t worry! Our course is designed like a zombie movie set, so even if you don’t wear your balloon or survive the race, you’ll still be in for a great run or walk."
