The Running Dead - A Unique Experience in Wichita Falls

The Running Dead is an experience like none other ever to happen in Wichita Falls! Prepare yourself to face the horrors of the living dead as you navigate through a zombie filled course to reach the finish line. But beware, another challenge awaits you there!

Our zombie course will not be for the faint hearted with zombies lurking around every corner, you will need to be quick on your feet and use your wits to survive! But this event is so much more than just the zombie run.


This is a community effort event, completely free to the public to enter. The kids corner will feature lots of fun activities like pumpkin catapults and face painting! Live musicians and artists will be scattered all around downtown. There are talks of a PUB CRAWL and party sites being added to the list of fun things to do! Downtown businesses will be handing out candy for the trick or treaters and so much more! Be sure to grab one of the onsite maps to see what each business has waiting for you. 

Join us for an unforgettable experience that you will never forget!
