*See image in album 'TLOU' called "Runners" for image example.

Runner is stage one of the Cordyceps infection. This stage of the infected begins within the first two to three days of the Fungi entering the system.

Runners have lost all of their major brain functions to the FungĂ­, their ability to think rational thoughts is completely abstracted and they become hyper aggressive. Runners are mostly controlled by the infection.

Runners are fast movers and the enemy you encounter most often within the TLOU games, they attack everything they see in attempts to spread the virus. Runners biggest danger is that they travel in numbers, but are otherwise easy to kill without protective coating fungi brings them.

When a runners travels alone it can often be heard wailing or screaming, the thought process behind it is that they're sentient enough to feel pain and are aware of their infection.
