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
Gets you going
Runner 5 here. I have paid for the premium as I like to alter how I get chased by the Zoms. It also makes it easier to download a few episodes at a time as I like the story quite fast paced so I am nearly at the point where I get 2 episodes in 1 run. I like the chases high and easier to run away when I am doing a sprinting session and got 3 chases in 30 mins last week and survived each but I did push myself hard which is what I wanted it to do doing this is more motivating when it is early morning or just as it starts to get dark in the evening as the fear kicks in when they get close🧟♀️🧟♂️. It has so many little plans for training it is a fantastic motivator. That and you can make and build your own Able Township up. The features for the free version are good. You still get everything you just cannot download multiple episodes and cannot change the chases. It is great if you are on a treadmill or out in the wilderness and you can listen to music in between chases and updates to runner 5’s missions. Runner 5 out. 🧟♀️🧟♂️🧟♀️🧟♂️
Amazing, love it!
Zombies, Run! Is an exceptional app. It has helped me massively with my fitness. I need to have something that keeps my attention. Running for the sake of it is not my thing and I quickly lose interest, but with this I have a massively engaging story with characters that you really relate to and love to hear that keep me coming back for more. The writing is excellent and they are great at jaw dropping moments, that really get to you feeling with the characters. The only only thing I would like is a bit more with the base- make it a bit more worth while- message to the Devs- a young lad has put out a game called Final Outpost on IOS- combining something similar to your Able awe crafting and that would be amazing, with some point to defence and moral- like events. Would really love that.
Oh and I was using this to train to 5k which I achieved but due to life atm I found myself cycling a lot more than running and the game still works great for cycling!
Fantastic concept, but tracking issues
Love the idea of this app, and the stories are really engaging and pretty creepy (you’re brave if you run with Zombies, Run! at night!) I love that you can have music/podcasts playing at the same time, as I was worried that the zombie episodes would be constant for my entire run, but the interruptions are quick and interesting, and aren’t too frequent to break your tempo.
However, I’ve had massive GPS issues when using the app, which I haven’t suffered using other fitness apps. Apparently I ran 1km in about 3 minutes, and my overall run ended up being 2+km more than the route I planned. The zombie chases also seem to be geared towards elite runners who begin running at a faster pace, as even when speeding up from 6min/km to 4min/km there seems to be no difference in my inability to outrun the mob - I suspect this ties in with GPS issues.
Once the above is fixed, as well as allowing standalone apple watch functionality and Strava integration, this will be a great app. But for now I have to run Strava simultaneously, which unfortunately Zombies Run interferes with anyway.
