Bess Kershisnik of DeKalb sprints during the final moments before crossing the finish line during the zombie chase in and surrounding Hopkins Park in DeKalb on Sunday, October 20, 2013 . Kershisnik was a live runner equipped with a "life flag." That life flag could be pulled off by a zombie and in that case a medic could help the live runner. The zombie with the most "life flags" and the end of the chase was the winner.
