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

Add excitement to your run by escaping the zombie horde.

Gets you going


Runner 5 here. I have paid for the premium as I like to alter how I get chased by the Zoms. It also makes it easier to download a few episodes at a time as I like the story quite fast paced so I am nearly at the point where I get 2 episodes in 1 run. I like the chases high and easier to run away when I am doing a sprinting session and got 3 chases in 30 mins last week and survived each but I did push myself hard which is what I wanted it to do doing this is more motivating when it is early morning or just as it starts to get dark in the evening as the fear kicks in when they get close🧟‍♀️🧟‍♂️. It has so many little plans for training it is a fantastic motivator. That and you can make and build your own Able Township up. The features for the free version are good. You still get everything you just cannot download multiple episodes and cannot change the chases. It is great if you are on a treadmill or out in the wilderness and you can listen to music in between chases and updates to runner 5’s missions. Runner 5 out. 🧟‍♀️🧟‍♂️🧟‍♀️🧟‍♂️

I didn’t believe it would work


So, I’m mid-40’s, around 92kg, unfit, and stopped smoking after 30 years in December 2017. I tried many times to quit but failed until I found the app ‘Smoke Free’, it is a great app as well but it had a link to ‘Zombies, Run’ and so I tried it.
I used to cycle in my teens and 20’s, and have never jogged/ran, in fact I have regularly belittled joggers and snubbed it as a form of exercise - but I am hooked now!
I needed to exercise as my new job is less physical and my shirts appeared to be shrinking and this seemed fun. It is more than fun, I am walking/jogging 3.5miles at least once a week, and I have improved from 18 minutes per mile to 14 minutes per mile in just 4 missions. I am astounded.
The story is superb and the way it links with my playlist is great. Like other reviewers I really enjoy listening to the ‘radio’ programme after the mission has finished and I wish I could walk/jog for longer to hear more of it.
Having the chases turned on is excellent fun, although I have just discovered that they can occur after the mission has been completed, and that surprised me as I was knackered!!
I am loving it, and I think it will keep me exercising more than anything else ever has.
