Wolf Pack brings out the Zombies

Wolf Pack brings out the Zombies

KUNSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea -- The night sky is rolling in with the clouds over Kunsan Air Base. Growls and grumbles are heard in the mist of fog and distance. Something’s getting closer; the sound of dragging feet across the cold concrete increases. Tonight, is the night that zombies roam the base, hunting for an early night snack.

Halloween is right around the corner and what better way to celebrate than to have a zombie run, keeping the wolf pack in shape and preparing them for the journey of a zombie apocalypse.

Only the brave will take on the challenge of going out in this time of life and death; facing many of the undead head on while participating in the Zombie Run that was held at dusk on Oct. 28th.

Zombies don’t just appear out of nowhere.

Staff Sgt. William Hannay, 8th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron debrief technician, transformed fellow wolf pack members for this special occasion.

“I decided to help with the zombie run and my role for the zombie run was makeup artist,” said Hannay.

The zombies spooked 16 runners for 3.7 kilometers as they made their way around a portion of the base.

“This was simply a fun run to allow people to dress up and enjoy the Halloween mood,” said Staff Sgt. Armando Avalos, 8 Force Support Squadron special events coordinator.

Though if the circumstances ever arise and you find yourself in the midst of the walking dead, take notes from the 16 zombie survivors and put on your shoes and hit the pavement running.
