FAIRFIELD — What do zombies and colleges have in common? They both want brains.

Demon Dreamz Haunted House, the Fairfield Youth Commission, the United States Army and the Fairfield Police Activities League are teaming up to host the first Fairfield Zombie Run to raise money to create a college scholarship program for local teens.

The Aug. 30 event will have a zombie-infested obstacle course and feature several physical challenges for participants as they race against the clock to find the last outposts of humanity.

At every outpost, runners will have a challenge to face. The zombies will be able to “eat” runners if they capture the runner’s flag on the belt provided to all the humans at the start of the course.

The first 100 to register will receive a free T-shirt.

The race is open to those who are 10 years of age or older. It’s strongly recommend that guardians accompany children.

People can sign up from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays at the Fairfield Community Center, 1000 Webster St.

The apocalypse will kick off at 10 a.m. New teams will tackle the course every 15 to 20 minutes until 2 p.m. The last team will start at 1:30 p.m.

The event is at the Fairfield PAL Center located at 2195 Union Ave.

If you wish to sleep through the apocalypse, there’s a tribute package where you pay the registration fee for a local teen to volunteer to take your place.

The Fairfield PAL Program at the Matt Garcia Youth Center is open to Fairfield, Suisun City, and Travis students enrolled in grades 7 through 12.

Call 422-6288 or visit the program’s Facebook page at www.facebook.comFairfield-pal for more information.
