Zombies, Run!

By Six to Start

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Get ready for the run of your life. Join 1,000,000+ 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. Pro is available for $2.99/month or $19.99/year. Your subscription will not automatically renew. (Existing paid players will have access to a special discounted membership rate, plus free access to all game modes and S1-3 missions).

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.

Saving the world not exciting enough? Activate Chases to kick things up a notch. When you hear zombies on your six, it’s time to speed up before they get too close. Can you escape every mob, or will you have to drop some of your hard-earned supplies to distract them? There’s only one way to find out.

View detailed graphs and stats for your entire running and game progress — and check out which songs you play the most while escaping zombies!

Every time you run, you’ll automatically collect vital supplies like medicine, batteries and food. Once you’re home, you can use them 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.

One big step back with the update

I've had Zombies, Run! for awhile now and was well into Season 3 when the latest update kicked in. Then...problems. Updates no longer interspace with the songs in your playlist when they're done...instead your music will play for a set amount of time and then abruptly stop to play the story then another set time of music which ensures that you'll always be listening to snippets of music rather than whole songs. On all my runs with the new update, audio has also abruptly just stopped playing for reasons I can't figure out. The interface is unnecessarily confusing and there seems to be too much shuttling between tabs. And, of course, integration with Facebook remains a problem and substandard compared to the old system (when it worked). I give the app 3 stars for fond memories but I'm removing it from my phone and looking for an alternative. Hugh disappointment....

Never Would've Thought!

So, I am not a runner, and I really hate zombies... and I ADORE THIS APP!! I came across it featured on the App Store, and shared it with my boyfriend thinking it might motivate him to join me in the gym. I tried it out myself for kicks and was addicted after the first mission. It's so immersive... You guys did a really good job. I didn't even change my workout routine at all... I do my usual five to ten minutes on the elliptical, then I lift. I think it's really great that the story keeps playing, though I have had to jump up from a machine
And run in place to escape the zoms! :) I've recommended it to everyone. Fantastic. You worked really hard on this, and it shows. Well done.

A Disappointing Update

With the new update, the minimum length of missions has effectively doubled, making them a lot harder to fit into my schedule. The new tendency to suddenly stop in the middle of my music is jarring, especially when I'm using cadence or podrunner podcasts to maintain my pace. Also, for some reason I can't seem to skip or go back on songs in the built in player.

I'm excited to see season 4 but the step backward in user experience is really starting to sap the enjoyment from using the app.
