Get ready for the run of your life. Join 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 300+ 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.

Editors' Notes

There's something freeing about the end of the world


The Zombies, Run! app has been such a great motivator to keep me exercising for the past 4 months. As the title suggests the end days are near! The world of ZR! Places you in the fight for survival as you join one of the last bastions of hope for humanity at Abel Township. The engrossing story along with thrilling voice acting makes for a fun and enthralling experience which you will want to keep coming back to. The main cast of characters push the story in ways that make you feel as though you're actually making a difference for this in game community. Whether it be a run of the mill tech run or one of their captivating virtual race event runs, you can count on the team there at Zombies, Run! to come through with a gripping audio clip to run. As you run you earn resources to use in the mini game which you develop/personalise your settlement, so addictive! I cannot sing it's praises enough, so join the us at Abel Township, get fit and achieve those goals you set yourself while sitting at home indulging in too many treats. 10 tins of food out 10, for anyone looking for the motivation to get active this is your saving grace.

Fun App! Grr for Keeping NYE Goals


Have been using this app for a long time, it’s a great way to work on your fitness goals without feeling bored! The addition of advertising was a little annoying but the legacy subscription was worth the price, a good deal for all the content it offers. I find the outside run tracking is far better then the treadmill option but the developers seem to be trying to improve the gym option. Thanks to this apps help I will be trying the Zombie race/marathon special event and a regular marathon this year! I would love more special events like the zombie run/call of duty episodes, that was a lot of fun! Overall a great app that has been well developed over time and hopefully will continue to do so! Also check out their couch to 5k Zombie Run App if like me when you started your “Run” was more of shamble 😄😄
