STEPHENVILLE (March 29, 2016) – Support Stephenville HS Theatre and the Behind the Spotlight Scholarships Drive at our 1st Annual 5K Zombie Run. Join us on April 16th, 2016 at Stephenville City Park at 6 pm for a 5K that’s sure to get the blood pumping. There will be a viewing of Ate is Enough, A Zombie Parody with an alternative ending prior to the 5K. The 5K will start at the gazebo on the Bosque River Trail with turnarounds at the ½ mile and 1 mile markers so runners of all fitness levels can participate. Runners will have to be chipped time and complete the 5K to be eligible for awards.
Participants can choose to wear a survival belt (flag football belt provided at race) and be pursued by zombies in designated zombie zones. Participants that complete the course with a flag intact, “survive” the run. Those that had all flags pulled by zombies were “eaten” by the zombies. Participants can also choose to run the race and not be pursued by zombies. Or participants can choose to dress as a zombie and run the race, but will NOT be permitted to chase anyone.
Pre-registration fee is $25 and runners must be registered by April 1st to be guaranteed a t-shirt and use of a survival belt. Race Day fee is $30. Packet pickup and preregistration will be held at Stephenville HS in the foyer on April 15th from 2 pm to 6 pm and then starting at 4:30 at the park on race day. Check in will start at 5 pm on April 16th at the large pavilion at Stephenville City Park. Race registration forms can found at www.racedayeventservices.com or at www.sville.us under news and announcements.
Show your support of SHS Theatre and have a blast dodging zombies. Prove you have what it takes to survive a zombie apocalypse
