25 Sat 5:00 PM Trail of Terror Zombie Chase
Place : El Dorado Lake, El Dorado , KS
4 MILE TRAIL RUN
  One week ago today, the city of Wichita announced that a devastating virus has infected the greater metropolitan area. The virus attacks the human blood stream and forces its way into the neurological system. Any and all infected by it transform into terrorizing, flesh eating zombies. The virus has infected citizens of El Dorado, Wichita, and the surrounding communities and is transmitted through a zombie bite. Sign up as a runner or a zombie and have the night of your life at this terrifying event. Sign up for the 5pm wave to avoid the zombies, or at 6:30pm to run for your life!
