Created with the NHS and the UK's Department of Health, The Walk helps you walk more, every single day. When you’re playing The Walk, every step counts.
A bomb explodes in Inverness station, and you’re given a package that could save the world. To stay alive, you’ll need to walk the length of the UK. The Walk is more than just a great pedometer/step counter — it's a way to turn walking into a journey, a challenge, and a rip-roaring adventure.
Made by Six to Start and Naomi Alderman, creators of the world’s most popular running game with over 5 million players, Zombies, Run!
ENGADGET - “Simple, fun, effective.”
JOYSTIQ - "Spices up your step-tracking with some danger and intrigue.”
BBC NEWS - “Encourages users to walk 10,000 steps-a-day to help improve their health”
LIFEHACKER - “You're motivated to actually get up and move around so you can progress further into the story, and it works really well.”
AWESOME ACTIVITY TRACKER
Just put your phone in your pocket or purse and we’ll track every walk and run you take — and map it, too!
You’ll walk the length of the UK while evading capture by the police and enemy agents. Can you work out who set off that bomb in the first place and what their plan is? Get ready for an epic adventure across 65 episodes, 800 minutes of audio, and hundreds of miles.
Get rewarded for walking more by collecting clues, scanning for information, and unlocking achievements.
The Walk adjusts its difficulty based on individual fitness levels. Everyone’s different, and we make sure we give you the right level of challenge!
Comes with the first five episodes and challenges for free, with the remaining 60 unlockable for a single, one-time in-app purchase.
- Requires iOS 10.3
- Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. The Walk uses your phone’s accelerometer to measure your movement, and primarily uses wifi and cell towers to track location. The Walk is designed to use GPS sparingly and should have little to no impact on your battery.

Ratings and Reviews
Amazing for incentive
This app really helps if you don't always have the willpower to keep going - storyline is great too!! One of my fave fitness apps now
Definitely not for running
I suppose that should be obvious with a name like "the walk", but it's impossible to have the phone in your pocket or on your arm while playing because you'll miss things on the map.
Also, the accents sound fake and are super annoying. To the point where I stopped playing after the second or third "chapter".
Would be good if you get bored walking to work or school and don't like listening to music.
What's going to happen next??
Absolutely love this app! I usually walk all day (check map now and then to unlock hidden objects) then come home and listen to the unlocked chapters in one go.
Love playing the stories from start to finish when I'm nodding off to sleep. Lots of memorable characters and situations and funny quips that keep me motivated to keep moving to hear what's next!
Hope there will be a new app like this as I'll be pretty lost when this one ends :-D
