Zombies, Run!


Get ready for the run of your life. Join 1.5 million runners on an epic adventure!

You tie your shoes, put on your headphones, take your first steps outside. You’ve barely covered 100 yards when you hear them. They must be close. You can hear every guttural breath, every rattling groan - they’re everywhere. Zombies. There’s only one thing you can do: Run!

Zombies, Run! is an ultra-immersive running game and audio adventure, co-created with award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman. Every run becomes a mission where you’re the hero, with our immersive audio drama putting you at the centre of your very own zombie adventure story. While you run to the perfect mix of heart-pumping audio drama and pulse-pounding songs from your own playlist, you’ll collect supplies to grow your base back home.

BBC NEWS - “The only way to save yourself is to run for real.”
WIRED - “In the style of Runkeeper, with an exciting undead twist.”
LIFEHACKER - “A really cool way to get outside and exercise.”
CNN - “Turns exercise into a game - a terrifying, terrifying game.”
TIME - "Takes all the fun of a zombie game and funnels it into a fitness app."

“Evaded all zombie mobs :-) One of my best sprints ever; this app works!”
“This game will make you sweat. Perfect junction between game design and run tracker.”
“Just tried @zombiesrungame and for the first time in my life I feel truly alive.”

Zombies, Run! works anywhere and at any speed. You can jog in a park, run along a beach, or walk along a trail. It even works on treadmills!

Hundreds of lives are counting on you. You’ve got to rebuild your base from a few shivering survivors into a fortified beacon of civilization by collecting critical supplies and avoiding roving zombie hordes. Can you save them and learn the truth about the zombie apocalypse?

You become the hero in an epic story of humanity’s struggle for survival where your running really matters, and there’s a deeper mystery to be uncovered as well. Play the first four missions for free and unlock one extra mission every week.

Unlock all 200+ story missions immediately for unlimited play, plus Interval Training and Airdrop Mode.

Choose your own custom playlists: the story unfolds in between your tracks through a series of dynamic radio messages and voice recordings.

Saving the world not exciting enough? When you hear zombies on your six, it’s time to speed up. Can you escape every mob, or will you have to drop some of your hard-earned supplies to distract them?

Every time you run, you’ll automatically collect vital supplies like medicine and ammo. Use supplies to build your very own post-apocalypse community. Do you strengthen your defences against the zombies, or build a new farm? Share the results with your friends and find out who can make the brightest future for humanity.

I hate running. So this is a nice diversion. It creates a point of view story and as you run, you're experiencing the story - you are told what is happening and there are times when it has you sprint away from zombies and such, which helps build cardio.

I cannot recommend this app enough. I run and enjoy it and don't have to be prodded or provoked to run. However, I do have a lot of fun when I have to outrun zombies. The developers have done a great job at offering specific programs for whatever you want to do, like run a 5k. Having a goal to work towards, other than that of being caught by zombies, makes this app well worth the cost.

I can't say enough good things about this app. On days when I just don't want to exercise, my desire to find out what happens next drags me out the door! I'm not much of a runner, but I use Zombies Run when walking and when riding my bike. It's about a 20 minute bike ride both ways to my school, so I'll stop the mission when I get to school and resume it for the ride home. Although I finish the mission about half way home, radio mode keeps me entertained for the rest of the ride :) I also love that ZR syncs to Runkeeper :)

Never run without this. I use other apps for tracking progress. This I use for helping pass the time.
