Zombies, Run!

By Six to Start

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Get ready for the run of your life. Join 3 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 240+ story missions 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 drop some of your hard-earned supplies to distract them?

Every 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 5.1.2

Hello, Runner 5! We have some great new features and improvements for you in this update, including:

- Mission Progress Bar: Ever wondered how far you're through a story mission? Now you can, using our run screen progress bar. Even better, we also show you how many supplies you've collected on your mission so far!

- All-New Apple Watch app: Our Watch app will now stay in the foreground while you're on a run, making it easier than ever to check your run progress at a glance - including, for the first time, a live supply count. You can also now select from a list of missions rather than just the next one, and you'll see a whole host of UI and run info improvements.

- Milestone Emails: If you're registered on ZombieLink, you'll now receive emails and gifts from the folks at Abel Township when you pass special milestones like running 50km or 200km, or completing certain missions!

- Lots of bug fixes and improvements to chases.

Thanks for sticking with us, Runner 5 - we couldn't do this without you. 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!

BONUS ENTIRELY NON-CANONICAL SONG: The Ballad of Abel Township Runner Five
(aka "our homage to the Hamilton musical")

How does a walker, jogger, glum of boring
Workouts, airdropped in the middle of a
Forgotten spot by Abel Township, by providence
Infested, by zombies
Grow up to be a hero and a Runner?

The fifth-time successor runner without a trainer
Got a lot farther by moving a lot further
By sweating a lot longer
By working with real honour,
By mission end, they placed her in charge of a
Town's protection

And every day while zombies were tearing people’s hearts out
Away across the land, she struggled and kept her guard up
Outside, she was running to keep the town unparted
The sister was ready to run, fight, become a martyr

Then a madman came, and devastation reigned
Our woman saw humanity drip, dripping down the drain
Put laces on her trainers, headset tight to the brain
And she ran without complain, ignoring the pouring rain

Well, the word got around, they said, "This kid is insane, man"
Bringing back supply collections all 'cross the hinterland
“New destination: don't forget the whole kingdom ‘cos
The land is gonna know your name. What's your name, man?"

Abel Township Runner Five
My name is Abel Township Runner Five
And there's a thousand miles I haven't run
But just you wait, just you wait...

Great premise, bad UI

I did the Zombies, Run Couch to 5K and loved it, so I was super excited to get started with their more advanced training programs. Unfortunately the UI in the full app is awful. It just has super dumb quirks. For instance when you're doing one of the training programs, there's a multi-step process to "attach" one of the story missions to your run of the day so that you get credit for it. And if you miss a day, it skips you ahead and you can't go back and do the workout you missed. The Super Charge Your 5K workout that I'm trying to do has 6 runs a week, and realistically on my best weeks, I only make it to the gym 5 times, so every week I'm missing missions. I hate that I can't just do the missions in order, on my schedule. Also, the step tracker is awful. It's supposed to work on treadmills, but is wildly off on its estimates of my run every time. It's just a clunky app that takes a ton of clicking around to figure out how to make things work, and it shouldn't be that hard :( I'm gonna give it another week to see if I'm missing some functionality. It's a shame because I really love the premise and was planning on purchasing a subscription and using for a long time, but I can't justify paying for something that doesn't work well.

Great, fun workout app

I love zombies, and I've been trying to motivate myself to run regularly since I first did C25K last year. I had a bit of a gap so I picked up this and the companion 'Zombies Run 5K' app (which could use some updates to bring it up to iOS10 and integrate with HealthKit, but is still useful). The story is a good way to zone out and get your run (or walk) in. The main app does integrate well with HealthKit. The watch app just had an update to make it a little more feature full. I love all the geeky references as you go through the missions.

Super fun to run!

This app is great! I run on the treadmill a lot so when they added the treadmill feature I was sold. It also helps liven up those boring, repetitive treadmill runs. Amazing app. Definitely recommend it for anyone who likes zombies. Even if you don't, you will love this app. Try it! Also, go for an early morning run on a dark, foggy morning while using this app; if you dare! I did it once and think I ran a 6 minute mile for one mile! I've never been so freaked out! Definitely fun.
