WHAT PLAYERS SAY ABOUT ZOMBIES, RUN!
“This app is amazing. It gets me wanting to go for a run, it’s not exercise anymore, it’s pure entertainment.”

A PROFESSIONALLY DESIGNED 5K TRAINING PROGRAM
Devised by Julia Jones and Shauna Reid of Up and Running e-courses, this 8-week, 25 workout training program combines awesome storytelling with expert training know-how. Using this app isn’t just good for you - it’s also amazingly exciting!
GET FIT AND BECOME A HERO
You’re Runner 5, a vital member of one of the last outposts of humanity at Abel Township. During 25 workouts, you’ll be trained to help find supplies and protect the town from the ever-encroaching horde of the shambling dead, in a story written by award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman. You’ll learn about the characters, and you’ll have a vital mission of your own to train for and complete. Once your training is complete, you’ll be in the perfect place to continue the story as the hero in “Zombies, Run!”
PERFECT FOR BEGINNERS
Everything about Zombies, Run! 5k Training is designed for beginner runners: clear and detailed workout instructions, a gentle learning curve, and importantly, we don’t make any zombies chase you until you’re ready!
YOUR OWN MIX
Choose your own custom music playlists before you start running: the story unfolds in during your tracks through a series of dynamic radio messages and voice recordings.
VIEW YOUR RUNS ONLINE WITH ZOMBIELINK
We integrate fully with our free online ZombieLink service, so you can check your running stats and view and share your maps online, all in a beautiful and easy-to-use interface! Plus you can sync your runs with Runkeeper and export them as GPX files.
ALREADY PLAYED ZOMBIES, RUN!?
Zombies, Run! 5k Training takes place between Mission 1 and Mission 2 of Season 1, so it’s a fantastic way to experience 24 all-new missions about how Runner 5 first trained up with Sam, Doctor Myers, and the rest of Abel Township to become a valued Runner. (But if you’re looking to find out what happens after Zombies, Run!’s epic cliffhanger, you’ll need to wait for Season 2...)

What's New in Version 1.2.2
Fixed compatibility issues on devices running iOS 5.
Excellent app except for one thing...
This is great for people who are new to running. It gives you an idea on how often you should be running, and how far to push yourself. As well as its really motivational! However, I've tried a couple of times to share my progress via Facebook and it doesn't allow me :( I can do it on Twitter (which I don't really use) so I've just had to copy and paste my tweet to Facebook. But fiddly, really. I've tried to see if it's just Facebook not allowing it, but everything seems to be in order. Maybe a bug? Apart from that. It's amazing! :)
Couple of tiny things could be updated
Love the app, great for beginners to running and the story really helps keep me motivated.
I just think that since the main Zombies Run app can link to the Apple Health app this one should do the same, it would be nice to see the workout reflected there, but it's not a big issue.
The only problem I've had is when I click on the pictures for more info on some of the exercises it takes me to dead links. Little demo vids or updated links would be great, it would also be epic to have a guide to which are the best stretches to do during cool downs.
I love it
When I started this app I couldn't run for one minute, now I can do 10k. It makes it really easy to start running even if you don't feel you can run at all, the story line is interesting and there is loads of encouragement. I got hooked and started the main Zombies Run app after I had completed this one, I now run four or five times a week and have entered 5k races. Before I started this app I would never have believed I could do that.
