Events by EventfulShed with the Undead (a zombie 5k)
Shed With the Undead is a 5k event planned by the students in Amarillo College's OTA program. The event is a fundraiser to help the program. The 5k is a zombie-themed run set on the college's east campus. The run is for fun; we will not be timing it. If you would like to keep track of how long you "survived," we suggest you time yourself. Each single runner will be given two flags which represent the number of "lives" they have. Those who make it to the finish line with a life will receive a prize. The zombies who acquire the most lives will also receive a prize. Zombies, you may come with as much or as little zombie make-up as you like– but the more zombified, the better, so the runners know who is after their BRAINS!!!!
Come early so you can get ready to register. All participants must sign a release/liability waiver to run. Any persons under the age of 18 must have a release waiver signed by their parent or guardian.
Registration starts at 6:30pm and the race begins at dusk.
Single runners will be allowed to run or walk.
Zombie runners (stumble around until runners are close*) are allowed to chase a single runner as long as they please, or until they take a "life."
Zombie walkers (stumble around when single runners are close*) are to walk.
*The reason both zombie classes stumble is to create some confusion as to who will give chase when approached.
Due to the nature of this fundraiser, refunds will be given on a case-by-case basis.
