ZRX puts you at the heart of interactive fitness adventures from Marvel Move and Zombies, Run! While you move to the perfect mix of heart-pumping audio drama and pulse-pounding songs from your own playlist, you’ll collect supplies to earn trophies and grow your base.
It’s perfect whether you’re a total beginner or a seasoned marathon runner: ZRX works anywhere and at any speed. Jog in a park, run along a beach, or walk along a trail – you can even workout on treadmills or in a wheelchair!

In Zombies, Run!, co-created with award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman, rebuild your base from a few shivering survivors into a fortified beacon of civilization by collecting critical supplies and avoiding roving zombie hordes. Can you save them and learn the truth about the zombie apocalypse?
Saving the world not exciting enough? When you hear zombies on your six, it’s time to speed up. Can you escape every mob or will you drop some of your hard-earned supplies to distract them?
Every run, you’ll automatically collect vital supplies. Use these supplies to build your very own post-apocalypse community. Do you strengthen your defences against the zombies or build a new farm?

Ratings and Reviews
Thank you for changing who I was running from.
I downloaded ZR in 2012 after hearing an interview on NPR with Naomi Alderman. It sounded like a fun way to get exercise, which was exactly what I felt like I needed at the time. I had just graduated from college, and was broke, jobless, and severely depressed. At first running was just a way to get out of my head, but at some point in the next few months, it turned into something important and meaningful. I was running because I wanted to learn more about the residents of Abel Township, I wanted to hear Jack and Eugene bicker and flirt with each other, and I wanted to collect bras and water bottles to support a fictional community that sometimes felt more real than my own. An activity that had in the past served as a kind of self-punishment became an activity that brought me closer to my values. It made me feel fulfilled and accomplished. I can’t count the number of times this story has made me laugh, and how many times it has brought me to tears. Since 2012, I’ve run hundreds of miles. With the virtual races, I’ve pushed myself beyond anything I ever thought I was capable of. But I no longer do it to become more fit, or even to feel less depressed (although both of those things did happen). I did it - and still do it - because it’s truly fun. Thank you.
Over 900 miles this year
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.
Problems with the new app changes
I usually don’t write reviews but with all the problems the app is having at the moment I decided to write this. It’s been taking a long time to start up, crashing, zombie chases glitching out and tracking has been off both on screen and with the audio. Also when the chase audio plays and you hear the zombies, normally the audio would play and warn you about the incoming zombies. During this and the 20, 50 meter warnings the audio would muffle your music. Now it’s just completely muffles the music even when no audio is playing and zombie chase are 100 meters with tracking not working correctly so I’m sprinting far more then I’m supposed to. Zombie noises would never muffle the music. They would slowly increase in audio as you got closer to them without the muffling. I’ve been using the app since 2015 when I was in middle school running track and cross and never once ran into a problem. Now with the app change it’s been doing all of this and making it impossible to use the app to train. Please I hope this gets fixed because I don’t want to stop using this app because of all the sudden problems. (Once the issues have been fixed I’ll switch the rating to a 5 because other than the problems it’s having the app is super good. Just that the problem make it practically unusable for some who’s been using it for years.)
