The State Games of Mississippi is getting set for the 3rd Annual Boo Run and Mini Boo Run Oct. 19 at Bonita Lakes Park in Meridian.
The Boo Run is a 5K that starts at 9 a.m. Participants register as a 'human' or a 'zombie' that chases after the humans.
The Mini Boo Run is a 1-mile course for kids 12 and under who dress up in costumes.
The races will start at the boat ramp and go through all parts of Bonita Lakes, including the haunted woods and a cemetery that will be set up.
"It brings a draw from all over the state and people outside of the state, too," said State games marketing director, Leslie Lee. "We have a lot of people registered for it because it's kind of a different race. There's really nothing like it going on around in this area."
The cost to register for the Mini Boo Run is $10. The cost for the Boo Run is $25. All the proceeds go to the State Games of Mississippi.
