In Hollywood, a zombie's speed depends on the film's producers. For example, they move staggeringly in Night of the Living Dead, and swiftly in World War Z. During the Zombie Nation 5K, the zombies' speed depends solely on how fast they want to run. The race's organizers welcome walkers and runners alike, preferably if they're made up with white face paint, blackened eyes, fake blood, and other zombie get-ups. A portion of the race's proceeds will benefit Blank Children's Hospital.
