The third annual Zombie Crawl & 5K in Wichita Falls will take place Saturday, October 26. The fun-filled event promotes fitness through a city course with a post-apocalyptic setting.
The benefit run/crawl will begin at 6:30 p.m. The 5K run will start at dusk, which is around 7:15 p.m. Organizers guarantee it will be a "frighteningly fun night for all!"
Beginning at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Texomans are invited to enjoy free live music, food provided by special vendors, costumes, raffle drawings, a rib-eating contest, and much more fun!
Also, special guest appearance will be made by IronE Singleton, the actor who played "T-Dog" on The Walking Dead TV show. He will be available for autographs, book signings, photographs, and more!
Proceeds of the run benefit the American Red Cross of North Texas and Downtown Wichita Falls Development.
Early packet pick-up and race registration is scheduled for Friday, October 25 from 4 - 8 p.m. at Planet Fitness in Wichita Falls. The gym is located at 3915 Kell Boulevard.
Anyone interested in registering for the 5K run should do so as a "zombie" or "survivor," and are encouraged to dress the part. Survivors will get an extra minute head start. People can also "crawl" through downtown Wichita Falls dressed in their favorite zombie attire.
The Zombie Crawl portion of the event is free to the public.
