Your source for Temecula, CA and Southwest Riverside County lifestyle, events, & area information
Saturday, October 26, 2013 was a howling success at Galway Downs, with BooJum Institute’s Zombie Run in Temecula.
BooJum Institute, who poses the question, “How can children save our environment if they’v e never truly experienced it?” thrust entrants into a Walking Dead style world.
For these runners, a chance to get out on a sunny afternoon, and experience the Temecula environment close to Halloween than a family fun run at one of the most loved outdoor arenas in Southwest Riverside county. Keep your flag, stay human. About that simple.
Runners signed up for an adventure 5k fun run, to race through zombie infested trails, and escape with flags intact to maintain their “humanity.”
Sponsored by Sunpro Solar, Rock Fitness, RKR Marketing, 101.3 The Mix, Timmy D. Productions, Soboba Foundation, and Union Bank, crowds gathered early to be made up into zombie attackers, or wait for the starting gun to race to freedom and safety of the quarantine zone.
The race was a mad dash for the end games, where waiting were the pumpkin patch, face painting, and other family fun activities at the kids zone.
Of course, they had to make it past the hall of zombies to do it. If they dared.
Adults were welcome at the beer garden, had photo opps with the resident zombie ghouls, and stayed to enjoy ParaNorman on a giant outdoor movie screen to round out the day. All in all, a spooky day of fun for all at Galway Downs in Temecula.
