Mark your calendar for October 5, 2019, for the fourth Hyattsville Zombie Run 5K. The Halloween themed 5K race is USATF certified and timed, and the 1 Mile Kids’ Challenge and 1K Family Fun Run are opportunities for everyone to participate. Dress up as a zombie or any Halloween costume to add to the fun! All races will start and finish at Magruder Park.

This event is hosted by the Hyattsville Elementary School PTA and proceeds will support HES, including the purchase of art supplies, musical instruments, coats for students, field trips, teacher professional development, and more. This is the PTA’s biggest fundraiser of the year!

When your child registers to run in the Hyattsville Zombie Run, you can also set up a fundraising page that allows your friends and family to sponsor your child. Every dollar raised through this fundraising page goes directly to the HES PTA.

For every $10 your child raises by noon on October 4th, your child’s name will be entered into a raffle to be held on race day.

Prizes:
1st prize is a bike from Arrow Bicycle, valued up to $500! (prize is non-transferable)
Several other prizes will be awarded as well!

Special thanks to Arrow Bicycle for their generous support of this project to help all local Hyattsville schools.
