Welcome to the Student Recreation Center Annual 5K Page!



Every Spring the Student Recreation Center hosts a 5K walk/run. The goal of this event is to promote healthy living and an active lifestyle for members of the TAMUK community and surrounding Kingsville area. This event is sponsored by local businesses that donate both time and prizes for the run.  This year's 5K is a ZOMBIE RUN! There will be two separate courses that intersect every so often, where the zombies can chase the humans! Humans will be wearing flags (3), that represent their lives; once all flags have been pulled they will then "turn" into a zombie. Humans have the opportunity to create their own flags as long as they can be easily pulled from the waist area (if not flags will be provided day of race). The Grand Prizes will be given to the Top 3 Overall Runners, Best Costume and Zombie that "turns" the most humans! Not the fastest? That's okay! There will be a raffle at the conclusion of the race with even more prizes. Are you Team Human or Team Zombie? If you are interested in this event, keep checking back with this page for more information!  We hope to see you at our 5K!
