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.

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.

Even the family loves it

So I’m young and don’t like to play competitive sport so I thought I would take up running and found this fun app. I have a sister and she likes to walk the dog with me. So whilst walking I turn up the volume, and I explain to her what we have to do. The audio starts and I begin walking.
As I keep my pace the “Siri” voice warns me that there are a bunch zombies behind me!
I say to her “you need to run”. sister is walking one of our dogs and I’m walking the other.
The dog I’m walking gets excited when I begin to run because it thinks we are going to chase a scent! The dog my sister is walking is a bit she had to go a bit slower and she thought the zombies were actually going to catch her (I outran them) The zombie noises add to that fun and the creepiness that I love in these types of audio-adventures!
My sister now asks me to play the episode I’m up too so she can listen to the fun and well detailed stories, collect fun items as we walk around the streets of our local town and to outrun those scary zombies!
I thank the developers of this game for all working on this amazing app, it takes a lot of work to pull off something this FANTASTIC!!
So I applaud you and ask that you continue developing this game as the #1 Best Fitness App...
