Trick or Trek> Zombie Run or Rot Challenge at Country Junction September 19!

Country Junction HalloweenAs 5K enthusiasts continue conquering clever takes on the endurance run, Country Junction joins forces with Waldorf Entertainment and Carbon Adventure Racing for a spooky spin on the sport with September 19’s Zombie Run or Rot challenge.

Hearts race as participants dodge the drooling departed tackling treacherous obstacles across The Waldorf Estate at Country Junction. Leaping from constructed ledges and makeshift calamities, this fitness feat has created quite a stir returning for its second year at the Lehighton destination.

Coordinator, Angela Moyer considers ZRR, “Great entertainment while getting fit.”

Noting the option to “Run or Rot,” she tells how some have chosen to change roles transforming in this year’s event from training to tackle the trek to terrorizing trekkers as costumed zombies.

Zombies beware; you’re not the only distractions, as spectators have the opportunity to get involved lobbing lumps of “Jell-O Brains” to help out runners.

Day of Runner Rates Range from Elite Runner $70, Runner $60 to Student $55 with a Rotter Rate of $30 arriving 1 1/2 hour early for makeup and a mission to “Grab as many [of the three vital organ] flags as possible one at a time.”

The Zombie Run or Rot challenge starts 9 a.m. and is open to all ages.

Plasma to pumpkins—Country Junction’s annual Great Pumpkin Festival rolls in the weekend after and runs September 26 to October 25. Take time to absorb the amazing sights, sounds and activities that continue to make this a Pocono Mountains’ top pick for an assortment of merriment.

“Here we celebrate families,” Moyer says maintaining the Country Junction Event Center’s goal, “To create fun for an entire family to enjoy.”
