Zombies to converge on South Philadelphia

    About 4,000 runners will test their luck against the walking dead in this weekend’s Zombie Run. It’s the brainchild of two local college students — Andrew Hudis, a student at Penn’s Wharton School, and David Feinman, who attends Bucks County Community College.

    They sat down with NewsWorks Tonight producer Shai Ben-Yaacov to talk about running, film, and surviving a Zombie apocalypse.

    Note: Shai will be running this weekend’s Zombie Run and recording his experience. If he’s not torn apart by walking corpses, he’ll tell us all about it next week.
