Run An Empire - The Strategy Running Game

By Location Games Limited

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Run An Empire is a strategy running game that takes place in the real world around you. Conquer lands in the name of your empire by running (or jogging or walking) around them.

Unleash your inner warrior in a race against friends and neighbours to rule the greatest empire of all time! Run An Empire combines the careful planning of a strategy game with physical location and movement.

- Capture unclaimed lands by running around them
- Expand your borders (and your gold stores) by raiding neighbouring territories
- Reinforce your empire against local adversaries
- Put your territories to work and harvest coins from the land
- Design your own heraldic shield
- Keep a log of all your raiding runs

Run An Empire is not just for gifted athletes. Most importantly, strategy and determination are needed to be victorious.

Fast Company: “Run An Empire challenges you to conquer territory and defend it from rivals, rather like the classic strategy game Risk.”

Polygon: “Run An Empire offers mobile gamers the opportunity to turn their local neighborhood into their own fiefdom.”

Runner’s World: “Level up your running with a new app that brings tactical gaming to the real world.”

Customer Reviews

Brilliant fitness and strategy

Clever mix of walking or running and planning the next attack! If you are a little competitive, you will love this. And it makes me walk/run further more often.


Gets me out of my office and running about, as I'm trying to keep ahead of the other runners near me.

I'm losing (the battle and several kilos).

Rule your patch of London

Good fun in a straightforward way, if you get satisfaction from pretending to conquer land. Walk or run (ideally in a loop) to turn the map your colour. Looking forward to more features!
