Zombies, Run!

By Six to Start

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Get ready for the run of your life. Join 1.5 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.

Customer Reviews


I have never left a review on the iTunes store, but I have to review this app because it is awesome! As someone who is trying to get fit, I find myself excited for the next run more than I would be if I was using a regular tracking app. I was leery at first because I prefer paper books over audiobooks any day, but these guys and gals use great inflection while telling the story/missions making 60 minutes feel like 30. I love being able to listen to my own music in between cut ins (I listen to action sequence film scores to keep up the game) and listening to the radio chats while doing strengthening exercises and other training besides running. Usually, I hate free apps that make you pay later to use all of the features. However, I don't mind the up charge on this app because I think it is worth it! Even if you don't upgrade, you can still unlock new missions each week so it's not like you'll be downloading a free trial that only lasts a certain amount of time. I highly recommend that you give this a try if you have an imagination and would like some motivation while running or just something to keep your mind off of everything else while you run. I read other reviews where people had said that this app crashes, but I have used this app for a week and it has never once crashed on me, nor have I had any other problem with it. So, perhaps the creators have fixed the issue.

Thanks Six to Start for the awesome app!

Never had this much motivation

First, let me say I have an iPhone 6+, and haven't had any issues with crashes. I read recent reviews, and wonder if the mode of phone has anything to do with it crashing for others?

I picked up the app as something to try while I was walking and found myself hooked on the story. The authors have done a good job making the story interesting, and having a cast of people and sound effects makes the story more interesting than one person reading a book. It's like listening to a movie.

My kids have even started walking with me and enjoy the story line. Note that my youngest is 13. There have been a few swear words. No f bombs. There have also been some suspenseful situations. I don't know the age recommendations, but I personally wouldn't let young kids listen to it.

Something else I like is that it plays well with other apps. I use Zombies, Run! with PaceDJ, and Zombies automatically turns down the other app so I can hear the story. Granted, it's not perfect, but it's pretty good. I discovered it works best if you start Zombies, Run! AFTER you start whatever other app you may be using.

I will add that I was impressed enough to spend the money for a month. With school starting again in the fall, I may not be able to get out and walk as much. Gotta get the kiddos to school, you know. Who knows what will happen once school starts?


I am a fanatic about this app. It is so much fun and I tell all my friends about it constantly even if they don't care. My run distances have tripled and I love playing along with the story. The episodes are incredibly well made, the voice acting is great and the writing is smart and I could gush about this app for pages. This is worth way more than it actually costs. I love this app so much that I am angry that some people have left bad reviews. I would volunteer to go door to door to everyone in the world and convince them to download this app and that is not a joke. To conclude, this app is the greatest single contribution to the human race's literary, entertainment and fitness canons, and if you're reading this you might as well just get the app and I promise you won't be sorry.
