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."

This app puts all other virtual races / runs to shame. People talk about spending money on a virtual race but there is nothing virtual about it. With Zombies, Run you get a real compelling story and in theme emails, and puzzles. You can get the medal too but with Zombies, Run you actually get a fun reason to get out and run.
I enjoy running, but it gets boring. Having the motivation to go on longer runs, to get out every day and run is hard. With Zombies, Run I want to get out there and run. The story is so compelling that I need to get out there and find out what happens next. I have favorite characters, and favorite couples. I know the places we run too, and am fascinated to learn more about the zombie plague and how it’s going to effect our heroes, and the villains too. The sound does get better as seasons go on. The other day I literally jumped when a zombie noise came up. It’s not just zombies though the main story line deals with history, politics, people and so much more. There are also other adventures. You can run along with Lois and Clark, run up a mountain on Mars, down to the depths of the ocean, and so much more. This is also a company with a loyal fan base. People make art about their running app! It’s incredible and I am so happy I downloaded it.
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!!!!
Best Motivation to Run. Period.
I’m a 17 year old going into college. Throughout high school I played rugby so I stayed fit, but I decided to not continue that in college so I had a hard time finding the motivation to work out throughout the summer. I purchased various (inexpensive) gym memberships and at-home CrossFit programs, but never followed through for more then a week or two because I would get bored and cancel my membership or pack up my workout CD’s. I didn’t have the money for fitness classes, so I tried running and found that I enjoyed being outside, but I found myself getting bored of that fairly quickly too. After a few months of bouncing around different workout styles I found this app and let me tell you it works wonders. As soon as I start to space out and get bored the story comes on again and I’m able to focus on that and get excited for the next piece of the story. I use a secondary app for interval running, but as soon as I get some money from my upcoming birthday I plan on purchasing the yearly runner’s club membership and working out while following this totally rad story. First app I’ve ever rated btw
