King George’s Caledon State Park, known for its hiking trails, hardwood forests and bald eagles, will be spooky Friday. As part of its Halloween observance, the Potomac River state park will host the One-Eyed Zombie Terror Trail 5K.
The race, which will benefit Special Olympics, is slated to begin at 4 p.m. The event will feature participants dressed as zombies chasing participants who are designated as survivors on wooded trails through the park at dusk.
King George Deputy Sheriff Rod Shriver, a frequent organizer of Special Olympics events, will compete as a zombie.
“It will be fun,” said Shriver.
