IMG_1892Zombies are invading Bethel – again!

We were not prepared. Despite reports of the outbreak in other parts of the world; we did not anticipate that we would be affected. We thought we would be safe with our isolation… oh, the folly of our arrogance.

We lost many friends and family within the first few weeks of the outbreak. Only to watch in horror as they rose again to strengthen the growing numbers of the undead.

The onset of winter was a blessing.

The walking dead weren’t quite as overwhelming. They started to freeze and we were finally able to obtain a sense of control.

The people of our region are resourceful and adaptive; with the will to overcome any obstacle thrown our way. The strength of our people and the courage of our fallen have given us the chance to rebuild our society and our way of life. To commemorate our fallen heroes and our survivors; to find the individuals that represent all that we have endured; to become a beacon of hope for future generations. We are initiating the second annual Spawn of the Dead trials! Now, I offer this challenge to you, citizens of Bethel. Do you have what it takes to survive?

Welcome to Spawn of the Dead: Bethel Zombie Trials! Do you think you’ve got what it takes to survive a zombie apocalypse? Now is your chance to test your skills of evasion towards the hordes of zombies!
On August 29, 2015, YKHC will host their second annual 5k Zombie Run here in Bethel, AK.

The task is easy: Don’t let them get you and finish the run with your life intact.

Throughout the 5k trail, there will be infected zones with hordes of zombies. The runners are equipped with belts, with three flags attached to them, these are your lives. The zombies will attempt to grab the flags from the runners and the runners are to evade the zombies’ attacks.

The run will start at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 29.
During the event there will be music, games, a photo booth, and plenty of healthy living tips and fitness classes to take at the fitness center.
