Get ready for the run of your life. Join 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."

Ratings and Reviews
I want to love this app but.....
I have ran a few times with this app and I love the immersive story line and the zombie chases but that’s were the fun stops. I’ve ran outside with it and it seemed to connect with my watch just fine. But the other times I have ran in the gym it won’t connect to my Apple Watch 3. Also it seems almost after every transmission it won’t go back to playing my music. I after to stop running and either pause the run a couple of times to get it to play or advance the song a couple of times to get it playing again. Also I have noticed that when I am at a jog and am getting chased by zombies I can’t get away even when I’m almost at a dead sprint....which seems crazy when your at 5 miles or more and are having to sprint to escape....but I can’t escape and end up having supplies dropped to escape!! I got this app years ago when it first dropped and came back to it....it seems really buggy now and also like the developers aren’t putting the time in it to fix the bugs....I am will to pay for the subscription but not with these kinda bugs.....I did order the book and am looking at doing the virtual race....so hoping they get these bugs worked out!!!!
Worth every penny
This is an AMAZING app!!! Interesting story, heart-pounding zombie chases, sports bras, side-missions, this app has it all. And I'm not even into zombies otherwise! There is something so inspiring about going on missions for Abel Township with Sam or others in your ear all the way. I've always been on the imaginative side, so to immerse myself in this world and run like my life depends on it is awesome.
I have encountered no bugs in six months of use. The app has season upon season of main story, with more on the way, plus side missions such as interval training, airdrop, and supply runs. Then there are six super awesome race missions for 5k, 10k, and 20k.
When I purchased the year subscription for the pro version, I thought the price was very steep for an app. But the motivating story, number of interesting voice-acted characters, and diversity of easy-to-use features make it my favorite purchase of the year. The developers do a great job of improving and adding to the app on a regular basis. They are always working on new seasons, and I feel my money helps make that happen!
Love it!! Would Recommend
I can't believe there aren't more reviews for this app - it's fantastic! It's the one thing that's kept me running and exercising through the winter and beyond. The writing is fantastic, the storyline is great, I love being able to build my own little base, and I constantly can't wait to see what happens in the next mission. I've gone from 220lbs with no running experience to 180lbs and almost making a half-marathon, in less than 5 months! And I'm not even in it for the weight loss anymore - I'm in it for the story!
The company is fantastic, too - always looking to see what their fans have to say, and doing their best to use that input to make this game even better. They always seem to be striving to make it open to everyone, too - it doesn't matter what kind of runner you are, or what shape you're in, anyone can play this game.
Tl;dr It's a great app made by a great company and if you're thinking about giving it a try, I'd definitely recommend it!
