Bradshaw Mountain High School's Interact Club is sponsoring the 2nd annual Zombie Run on Saturday, Oct. 26. This year will feature two runs, at 4 and 6 p.m., of the 1.5-mile loop at Mountain Valley Park in Prescott Valley.

Zombies and ghosts register to terrify runners. Runners try to avoid the ghouls. Entry fee is $10 for runners over 18 and $5 under 18. Zombies: $7.
