RiverQuarium to host River Zombies Race

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

You can get some exercise, support an Albany attraction and get spooked all at the same time.

The Flint RiverQuarium will host a 5K obstacle course run in Riverfront park this Saturday.

Here's the unusual part. Racers will have to avoid zombies before they cross the finish line.

All proceeds from the run will benefit the RiverQuarium.

"It's very important for us to have fundraisers because the admission simply doesn't cover the cost of running the aquarium, so we need those fundraisers to help keep the aquarium open. This is something you can do to have fun while supporting something that's important to the community," said Vicki Churchman with the Flint RiverQuarium.

The race starts at 1 pm Saturday.

Registration costs $25 in advance and $30 the day of the race.
