‘Run for Your Lives 5k’ A Muddy, Gruesome Spectacle of Anti-Zombiism

| May 11, 2012

A truly harrowing and disturbing story about the real experience of a ‘Run for Your Lives’ race: Race day was cool and overcast. We parked offsite at a nearby greyhound track and lined up for the bus to the course. Our line grew quiet as a bus pulled up and unloaded a round of earlier [...]

Again with Bashing Zombies to do Disaster Preparedness?!

| April 27, 2012

When will the Disaster-Preparedness-Industrial-Complex realize it isn’t cool to defame Zombies to promote being ready for disasters? SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. – What would happen if there was an outbreak of smallpox, flu or anthrax? The response would be the same even if zombies attacked. More than two dozen students at the University of Rhode Island [...]

Texas Tech Has ‘Humans vs Zombies’ Problem

| April 8, 2012

Naturally the ZRC disagrees with a great deal about the ‘Humans vs Zombies’ nerf game of tag that’s sweeping college campuses across the nation, starting with the title, which clearly promotes the nonsensical idea that Zombies are not people. Which, clearly, they are. Worse, it fosters an antagonistic, Anti-Undead attitude and a sort of unpleasant [...]

Party with the ZRC at Chicago FearFest, Maybe Win Free Stuff

| April 4, 2012

Well, ok, it’s hardly an exciting time to hang out with the ZRC alone (unless you’re just that enthusiastic about Zombie Rights and Undead Equality, in which case, we love you) but the ZRC is definitely taking Chicago FearFest up on this deal: With the fear fest coming up very soon, we got a special [...]

Zombie Apocalypse Simulations Create Hateful Live Entertainment

| March 30, 2012

It’s a sad statement that much of the populace today lives in constant fear of a ‘Zombie Apocalypse’. You almost can’t blame them; the media feeds our society a constant diet of Anti-Zombie terror and prejudice, from ‘The Walking Dead’ to ‘World War Z’ to an entire gamut of videogames, novels, comics and more. Still, [...]

‘Shit Not to Say to Zombies’ from the ‘Run for Your Lives 5k’ People

| February 28, 2012

You’ve heard about their Anti-Zombie fitness event, but did you know that the ‘Run for Your Lives’ 5k race people have a Youtube channel? And that they do some (admittedly above-average but still offensive) Anti-Zombie comedy? Check it out (warning: some language and situations may not be family friendly): I have to say, some of [...]

‘Run for Your Lives’? Excuse Us?

| February 27, 2012

Increasingly we’re seeing an interest in making fitness ‘fun’ and modern. Some of the ideas floated to do so are inclusive and potentially quite Zombie Friendly, like Fitocracy, which ZRC pal Michelle Hartz got me into recently. Others are decidedly less so, from outdoor experience camps for kids to, well, a 5k run that involves [...]

Anti-Zombie Boot Camp in the UK Starts Soon

| February 27, 2012

Well, we’ve seen Anti-Zombie camps for kids and such here in the US, but what if you’re an adult who wants to learn how to brutalize the innocent, unsuspecting Undead population with military precision? Or what passes for it in a few hours of training? And what if you live in the UK, and want [...]
