It is pretty convenient that this whole END-TOMBED race thing has a halloween theme - it just seems fitting since you'll probably be feeling like pretty much like a zombie by the end. And in order to help the exterior match the interior (for those who aren't taking care of that themselves by coming in costume) we've enlisted the help of a couple of the areas most talented young face painters, Michaela and Heather. These two gals know how to lay on the gore as evident by some of their work from the recent Zombie Music Fest here in Grand Forks.
They'll be coming out to END-TOMBED between 12 and 3 on race day so you can plan to use 'getting into the halloween spirit' as an excuse to take a short break between laps or something to do while "off duty" if you're part of a team.
Michaela and Heather tell me that it only takes about 5 minutes to do a complete face (bullet holes might take a bit longer), which is just enough time to let the lactic acid flush from your exhausted body so that you can start the next lap as a reborn undead. And at only $5, its a bargain.
