Zombies, Run!

By Six to Start

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Get ready for the run of your life. Join 1.8 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."

“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.”

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!

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?

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. Play the first four missions for free and unlock one extra mission every week.

Unlock all 200+ story missions immediately for unlimited play, plus Interval Training and Airdrop Mode.

Choose your own custom playlists: the story unfolds in between your tracks through a series of dynamic radio messages and voice recordings.

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 have to drop some of your hard-earned supplies to distract them?

Every time you run, you’ll automatically collect vital supplies like medicine and ammo. Use supplies to build your very own post-apocalypse community. Do you strengthen your defences against the zombies, or build a new farm? Share the results with your friends and find out who can make the brightest future for humanity.

What's New in Version 4.1.5

Raise the gates! This update is all about ENERGY.

If you enter your weight in More > Settings, we'll calculate your calories burned during runs, and sync everything with Apple Health. Not interested in calories? No problem - just don't enter your weight in the app (plus we'll be adding the ability to hide calorie count in the future).

We've also fixed a couple of bugs:

• Run route map and graphs now better handle large jumps in location
• Airdrop missions now play the correct audio when you're returning from the drop point

What's coming next? Better syncing with ZombieLink, and auto-downloading the next mission! And... the first ever Zombies, Run! Virtual Race!

We won't ask you to rate Zombies, Run! in the app, but if you're enjoying saving the world, please take a moment to rate and review us in the App Store - it helps a lot!

Great, but Not Entirely Necessary

This app helped me start running, and while I love it and can't imagine using anything else, I will say that its functions have cheaper alternatives.
The storyline keeps me coming back and the voice actors are skilled, but it's not THAT good and there are plenty of excellent podcasts online for free. However, it automatically plays music between segments to extend the story for as long as you plan to run so that the story doesn't finish while you're still in the middle of struggling. This way I can run for 30 or 60 minutes, but still be engrossed in the story for most of it.
I like the run tracking feature that breaks down speed per mile and also has a map, but there are free apps that do this as well.
Finally, there's a fun little feature that lets you use the supplies gathered while running to build the town, but this is a mild diversion, not an engrossing game.
Overall, this app consolidates several features and makes running easy and fun with no effort. which is what some of us need. However, if you're already committed to running, save money and find these features elsewhere.

Fun and more gratifying than just your normal run

I'm not a huge fan of exercising so the motivation that this app provides has been an enjoyable help. The intriguing story element, layered with the almost game style mechanics make that afternoon run so much more than just a tedious run. The interface is easy to use and very intuitive, the visuals are appropriate to the subject without being over the top, and the ability to listen to music between story elements is a nice touch. All in all this app is a great addition to my iPhone and I couldn't be happier that I stumbled across it!

Great idea, well executed.

I do love Zombies Run - it's helped me go from not running to doing 2-3 5K runs per week. It's really helped me implement a lifestyle change. Love the writing (some episodes are a little silly, but by and large it's compelling), love the voice acting, and love the base building. Be sure to listen to radio mode too - it adds a lot to the experience and some depth to the world. I typically do a half hour run listening to an episode, followed by half an hour walk with radio mode, which works perfectly for me.
