NEW ORLEANS -- The living dead roamed City Park for a charity 5k run Sunday morning.

Hundreds of people showed up to race through the park while dressed as zombies.

Hollywood makeup artists were on site to help transform runners into the undead.

Organizers say there was even an apocalyptic racecourse, with flipped-over cars and helicopters.

New Orleans is just one of the 16 host cities in the country to hold The Zombie Run. The organization picks one charity to benefit in each city, with New Orleans Rebuilding Together being chosen locally.
