WHAT PLAYERS SAY ABOUT ZOMBIES, RUN!
“This app is amazing. It gets me wanting to go for a run, it’s not exercise anymore, it’s pure entertainment.”

A PROFESSIONALLY DESIGNED 5K TRAINING PROGRAM
Devised by Julia Jones and Shauna Reid of Up and Running e-courses, this 8-week, 25 workout training program combines awesome storytelling with expert training know-how. Using this app isn’t just good for you - it’s also amazingly exciting!
GET FIT AND BECOME A HERO
You’re Runner 5, a vital member of one of the last outposts of humanity at Abel Township. During 25 workouts, you’ll be trained to help find supplies and protect the town from the ever-encroaching horde of the shambling dead, in a story written by award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman. You’ll learn about the characters, and you’ll have a vital mission of your own to train for and complete. Once your training is complete, you’ll be in the perfect place to continue the story as the hero in “Zombies, Run!”
PERFECT FOR BEGINNERS
Everything about Zombies, Run! 5k Training is designed for beginner runners: clear and detailed workout instructions, a gentle learning curve, and importantly, we don’t make any zombies chase you until you’re ready!
YOUR OWN MIX
Choose your own custom music playlists before you start running: the story unfolds in during your tracks through a series of dynamic radio messages and voice recordings.
VIEW YOUR RUNS ONLINE WITH ZOMBIELINK
We integrate fully with our free online ZombieLink service, so you can check your running stats and view and share your maps online, all in a beautiful and easy-to-use interface! Plus you can sync your runs with Runkeeper and export them as GPX files.
ALREADY PLAYED ZOMBIES, RUN!?
Zombies, Run! 5k Training takes place between Mission 1 and Mission 2 of Season 1, so it’s a fantastic way to experience 24 all-new missions about how Runner 5 first trained up with Sam, Doctor Myers, and the rest of Abel Township to become a valued Runner. (But if you’re looking to find out what happens after Zombies, Run!’s epic cliffhanger, you’ll need to wait for Season 2...)

What's New in Version 1.2.2
Fixed compatibility issues on devices running iOS 5.
I'm not a runner...at least I wasn't. I've always been more into swimming for my cardio, and I would shake my head in confusion at the people who talked about loving to run. This app gives me the thing that helps me enjoy running...a distraction from the actual running. One thing that would make the app more interesting would be a little storyline mixed into some of the longer stretches and some surprise zombies that make you run when you were previously instructed to walk (I'm only part way through the program so that may happen later). A glitch, that at least I'm experiencing, is with the music. I usually rotate the music stored on my iPhone for the sake of space, but when I re-download iTunes purchased music onto my device, it won't play with the rest of the purchased music. It will only play music that has never been removed from the device, so I keep listening to the same album :(
I'm actually running now
Don't get me wrong-I still hate to run. But I'm going out 2 or 3 times a week now and running-and faster and longer than since I was a kid with actual energy. The app has an engaging story and characters and a mystery and the only way to find out the ending is to keep running. If you're like me and need just a little extra incentive to get out there and run, this app is a must!
Great while it lasted.
I was enjoying this until week 2 day 2, when the program stalled at the end of the last run/walk interval, and no amount of restarting the phone helped.
