Zombies in Candia?
Chills, thrills and an electrified fence

Hundreds of runners spent the afternoon trying to outrun hundreds of slow-moving zombies that chased the runners in the Run For Your Lives Zombie 5K.
"It was a little more challenging than I thought," Hoffman said. "The obstacles were tough, and there were way more zombies than I thought there would be."
The runners weren't the only ones having fun, as the zombie hordes definitely got into the act. Each runner started the race with three flags attached at the waist. To make it through uninfected, a runner had to finish with at least one flag still attached.
Steve Reichert was a more professional zombie than most. He was dressed in a full suit and looked sort of like an undead high school principal.
The race was put on by RSP Live, a company that travels the country organizing zombie races. Originally scheduled to be held in Connecticut, the race was moved to New Hampshire because of permit issues, event coordinator Alyssa Onlie said.
