Join 1,000,000+ runners in 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. We deliver the story straight to your headphones through orders and voice recordings - and when you get back home, you use the supplies you’ve collected while running to build and grow your base.
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.”
NPR - "It gets you moving!"
TIME.COM - "Takes all the fun of a zombie game and funnels it into a fitness app."
WHAT PLAYERS SAY:
“Evaded all zombie mobs :-) One of my best sprints ever; this app works!”
“This game will make you sweat. Perfect junction between game design and run tracker.”
“Just tried @zombiesrungame and for the first time in my life I feel truly alive.”
WALK, JOG, OR RUN ANYWHERE
Zombies, Run! works anywhere and at any speed. You can jog in a park, run along a beach, or walk along a trail. It even works on treadmills!
YOU ARE RUNNER 5
Hundreds of lives are counting on you. You’ve got to 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?
A WORLD OF STORIES
You become the hero in an epic story of humanity’s struggle for survival where your running *really* matters, and there’s a deeper mystery to be uncovered as well. This app includes all 33 missions from Season 1 as well as the first 7 missions from Season 2 — plus a further 120 missions are available for purchase!
YOUR OWN MIX
Choose your own custom playlists before you start running: the story unfolds in between your tracks through a series of dynamic radio messages and voice recordings.
INTERVAL TRAINING - WITH ZOMBIES
With our optional ‘Zombie Chases’ mode, you’ll need to increase your speed and work up a sweat if you hear zombies on your tail. That’s right - we’ve made interval training *fun*!
DETAILED IN-APP STATS
View detailed graphs and stats for your entire running and game progress — and check out which songs you play the most while escaping zombies!
VIEW YOUR RUNS ONLINE WITH ZOMBIELINK
Register with our free ZombieLink service to view and share your runs online, complete with maps, full run history, and the ability to ‘play back’ zombie chases so you can see how much faster you ran when the living dead were right behind you! Plus you can sync your runs with Runkeeper and export them as GPX files.
SHARE RUNS WITH FRIENDS
With our new ZombieLink Social feature, you can keep tabs on how your friends are doing online, and also share your runs on Twitter and Facebook.
KEEP THE SURVIVORS ALIVE
You automatically collect items like medicine, batteries, and ammo while running - but when you’re back home, who needs them more: the soldiers or the doctors? Which buildings need extra defenses? It’s up to you - and the bigger your base, the more missions you can play.

“Send… more… Runner 5’s"
Love this app. I was never a runner, but wanted something to help me get back into shape. Being a big fan of anything to do with zombies, and interested in different types of games, I found this, downloaded it, and gave it a try.
My first run was awful. It was only a run in the most basic sense that “i mostly moved faster than usual”. I was so out of shape, it became more of a “run ten seconds, walk out of breath for a minute or two, shuffle a bit faster, rinse and repeat.”
But, I decided to stick with it, getting out every few days for the next few months. It’s now over a year since I started, and I’ve stuck with it, now deep into season three. I’m running full-pace for an hour every session, no walking, no shuffling, nothing.
The storyline is what kept me coming back at first, but now it’s just more of something to keep my mind occupied while I’m on the trail, or elliptical. The base-building aspect of the game is cute, but not much of a ‘game’ to it.
In the end, if you want a good way to motivate and track your fitness, listen to a good story, and you like things like the Walking Dead, then this is the app for you. If you’re looking for some kind of weird “Tower Defense Game” with zombies, well, this app has a basic one attached to it, but that’s not the focus of the game.
Raise the gates!
Really fun and motivating!
I am not a runner, but Zombies, run! is a great app to keep me moving. I listen to it while I walk and the stories make me go longer just so I can finish an episode. I have also used it at the same time as the C25K app to help me start building the stamina to run!
I think listening to music gets boring while working out, but adding the Zombies story breaks it up enough to keep me from getting bored.
It has a lot of features I don't really use like the zombie chase feature. I hope once I'm in better shape I can start using this feature without always getting caught. Also, my base is totally neglected- need to get on that. But when I have worked on it in the past, it's fun.
I highly recommend this app to folks of any fitness level who just want a fun story to listen to while they walk or run :)
This app is just great. I haven't used it every time I've gone running, but when I don't have the motivation or need to change things up a bit, it's excellent. I'll admit I was hesitant when I saw the price and size of the app, but honestly, I've found it to be worth it.
On a run, every so often, you can pick up supplies. It's much more motivating than you'd think. You also hear praise for picking up supplies or completing a task, as well as just for continuing to run. These comments are rather strategic, not only in giving motivation but also in giving breaks in the music. Part of the reason why I got this app is because music alone on a run bores me after a while. Add characters, missions, and motivational zombie chases, and it's actually pretty interesting.
There are in-app purchases. The other seasons are rather expensive and I doubt I'll be buying them, but if the app continues to impress me, I might consider it.
Most people don't want to buy apps that are over $0.99. Come on. For $3.99 you get a great app that incorporates your favorite music into a game that motivates you to move and be healthy. That's less expensive than some Starbucks drinks. Give up a Frappuccino for a day and get moving. Zombies, Run! makes it really fun to get--and stay--healthy.
