TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — Grab your tennis shoes and get ready to run to avoid getting attacked by zombies!

Northeastern State University (NSU) is hosting its first annual Zombie Run to benefit the Green and White Society Scholarship fund for full-time employees attending the university.

Participants may either register as "civilians" (runners) or "zombies" (non-runners). The goal for runners is to "stay alive during zombie attacks." Okay, not really an attack, but you'll have to cross the finish line with "at least one flag remaining."

Those who don't have any flags at the finish line will be considered "Zombie-fied!"

The first 100 people who register will receive a t-shirt, while the first 100 people who finish the race will be awarded a Zombie or Survivor medal.

You must be six or older to participate. Any runner under 16 must be accompanied by a guardian at all times on and off the course. Anyone under 18 must have a guardiansign a waiver.

It is $25 per person to participate in the run.

The non-timed race is taking place on Friday, November 1 at NSU's campus administration building located on 600 N. Grand Ave.
