Walking zombies are slow... and basically only walk. They've been infected for a while. Their muscles are rotting and tight. They crawl, roll, and shuffle around wailing and trying to grab sloppy players using fear and sheer numbers to add to their horde.

Runners are fast. They're recently infected so their enthusiasm to eat you is matched by their ability to still get a good clip going. They run, chase, and terrify.
