COLUMBIA — Zombies, those brain-hungry animated corpses Americans love to loathe, might be misunderstood. If the popularity of zombie-themed runs in mid-Missouri is any indication, perhaps all they want is a brisk jog.

On Saturday, runners showed up at Stephens Lake Park at 7 a.m. for the Zombie Rampage 5K Run, sponsored by the Missouri rowing crew team. Runners could choose to be either in the "human" or the "zombie" heat, with the objective of the zombies being to "infect" as many humans as possible before the end of the run.
