Join 1,000,000+ runners in 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. We deliver the story straight to your headphones through orders and voice recordings - and when you get back home, you use the supplies you’ve collected while running to build and grow your base.
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.”
NPR - "It gets you moving!"
TIME.COM - "Takes all the fun of a zombie game and funnels it into a fitness app."
WHAT PLAYERS SAY:
“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.”
WALK, JOG, OR RUN ANYWHERE
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!
YOU ARE RUNNER 5
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?
A WORLD OF STORIES
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. This app includes all 33 missions from Season 1 as well as the first 7 missions from Season 2 — plus a further 120 missions are available for purchase!
YOUR OWN MIX
Choose your own custom playlists before you start running: the story unfolds in between your tracks through a series of dynamic radio messages and voice recordings.
INTERVAL TRAINING - WITH ZOMBIES
With our optional ‘Zombie Chases’ mode, you’ll need to increase your speed and work up a sweat if you hear zombies on your tail. That’s right - we’ve made interval training *fun*!
DETAILED IN-APP STATS
View detailed graphs and stats for your entire running and game progress — and check out which songs you play the most while escaping zombies!
VIEW YOUR RUNS ONLINE WITH ZOMBIELINK
Register with our free ZombieLink service to view and share your runs online, complete with maps, full run history, and the ability to ‘play back’ zombie chases so you can see how much faster you ran when the living dead were right behind you! Plus you can sync your runs with Runkeeper and export them as GPX files.
SHARE RUNS WITH FRIENDS
With our new ZombieLink Social feature, you can keep tabs on how your friends are doing online, and also share your runs on Twitter and Facebook.
KEEP THE SURVIVORS ALIVE
You automatically collect items like medicine, batteries, and ammo while running - but when you’re back home, who needs them more: the soldiers or the doctors? Which buildings need extra defenses? It’s up to you - and the bigger your base, the more missions you can play.
- Requires iOS 7 or above. Works on iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, and iPod Touch 5th gen.
- Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
- Accelerometer mode can dramatically decrease battery life.

What's New in Version 3.2.3
• Updated security credentials
I got so frustrated with the constant crashes and 'pauses' between songs and app audio (app still runs just stops playing music or in app storyline audio) that I've stopped using this app now. Shame because I started using this app years ago with season 1, the story is great and it makes the long runs much less tedious, but it's so annoying having to pull my phone out my bag at random intervals. The problems have been transferred through updates and across an iPhone 4s, iPod Touch and iPhone 6.
Another consideration when purchasing should be that the app is not geared towards long distance runners. If you're out covering half marathon distance or more you're looking at playing a few missions per run, which you have to manually start by navigating through the app while running. This also makes using the GPS functions redundant as the app will log each mission as a separate run.
This game started very well and I was enjoying running with it. I ended up paying for a subscription to the game (expensive) but as I was enjoying the game I thought the game worth the money, then the update came! Since then the game basically doesn't work, it will either stop mid mission or just stop working completely. After about 5 wasted runs I contacted the customer service department via email. After a few emails confirming the details (this takes about 2 weeks) they informed me that they were aware of the issue (still have no idea why they haven't fixed it) and proceeded to tell me the correct terminology of a system crash (cheers)! Since then the game has been deleted. Since the update this game is a waste of time and money and I feel pretty angry about paying so much for a game that doesn't work!
Fantastic, well worth the money
This is a fantastic app, I was quite sceptical at first but within a couple of missions I was hooked. The story is incredibly well written, in some places there are brilliant plot twists and in others there are laugh out loud comments. The voice acting in it is first rate and I found the 'build your own Abel township' element a nice touch. I found myself going out running a lot more than I was just so I could listen to the next mission. This app has been worth every penny, other reviews say that it crashes a lot but I have never experienced this. Download this and thank me later!
