The Walking (and Running) Dead

The popularity of zombies as fearsome characters in movies, video games, and television series continues to grow worldwide. Fans of these undead monsters have taken to the streets in gory makeup in recent years, staging “zombie walks,” “zombie runs, “zombie survival camps,” even a “zombie pride day.” Some of the walks are for charity, others just for fun. Zombie runs can be playful, or terrifying, as participants overcome obstacles and shambling undead attackers. Gathered here are photos from some of these zombie events from Peru, Japan, Mexico, the United States, Italy, the Philippines, England, Taiwan, Serbia, Nicaragua, Argentina, Israel, Germany, Costa Rica, Spain, and Australia.
