Get ready for the run of your life. Join 10 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
Your helicopter crash-lands and you find yourself surrounded by zombie hordes. Better get moving! Zombies, Run! is a fitness tracker, interactive story, and base-building game all in one. As you jog, the narrative unfolds through “radio transmissions,” with characters guiding you on quests—like finding med kits and tracking down missing people. Completing these usually boils down to “Keep running!” But the intrigue-filled dialogue will have you feeling like you’ve done much more.
Made me love jogging!
Each time I finish one episode (going on a run) I can’t wait to find out what happens next! Really engaging story lines and plot twists and without it I’d find jogging a real chore. It costs me $AU50/year and for what it’s meant for my health and fitness I reckon it’s been one of the best investments I could make! You can choose either the length of time or distance with each episode and you can either turn the zombie chases on if you want to do short sprints on your runs or switch them off and go at a steady pace…either way there will be a cracking story involving characters with a lot of heart.
I’d encourage anyone to try this app if you also find running to be overwhelming or a bit of a bore. You can listen to it for free for the first few episodes (after which I believe you get one free episode per week) if you wanted to test the waters first. I’m not easily awed but I’d give this more than 5 stars if I could! If zombies aren’t your thing then just pretend you’re trying to dodge hordes of covid infected people instead and that should get the legs going :)
Even the family loves it
So I’m young and don’t like to play competitive sport so I thought I would take up running and found this fun app. I have a sister and she likes to walk the dog with me. So whilst walking I turn up the volume, and I explain to her what we have to do. The audio starts and I begin walking.
As I keep my pace the “Siri” voice warns me that there are a bunch zombies behind me!
I say to her “you need to run”.
Now...my sister is walking one of our dogs and I’m walking the other.
The dog I’m walking gets excited when I begin to run because it thinks we are going to chase a scent! The dog my sister is walking is a bit chubby...so she had to go a bit slower and she thought the zombies were actually going to catch her (I outran them) The zombie noises add to that fun and the creepiness that I love in these types of audio-adventures!
My sister now asks me to play the episode I’m up too so she can listen to the fun and well detailed stories, collect fun items as we walk around the streets of our local town and to outrun those scary zombies!
I thank the developers of this game for all working on this amazing app, it takes a lot of work to pull off something this FANTASTIC!!
So I applaud you and ask that you continue developing this game as the #1 Best Fitness App...
OF ALL TIME!
