MOUNTVILLE, Pa. -

The Field of Screams' first-ever "Zombie Fun Run" is being billed by organizers as a "huge success."

The event on Saturday featured several hundred runners attempting to traverse a 5K course without becoming victims of "hungry zombies."

"Great obstacles," said one participant. "Everything was well planned out and allowed you to be challenged but have fun. I will be back next year."

A portion of each registration was set aside for the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition, raising $3,500 for the group's efforts of representing, supporting and serving breast cancer survivors and their families through educational programming, legislative advocacy and research grants.

Details for the second annual Zombie Fun Run have not yet been announced.
