"Boo Run" Turnout Doubles

By  | 

Officials say turnout for this year's "Boo Run" doubled from 2011.

The State Games of Mississippi hosted its second annual "Boo Run" at Bonita Lakes. It's an event where the zombies chase down the runners. There was even a "Mini Boo Run" for children.

"They are all dressed up in their Halloween costumes," Leslie Lee with State Games said. "They even get to take a little pumkin and a goody bag home with them."

Organizers are hoping for an even larger turnout in 2013.
