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.

What's New

Version 7.0.1

Raise the Gates: Season 7 is here, and with it comes our biggest update in years! We've completely redesigned the app to make it faster, easier, and more fun to use. Did you know you could re-listen to story clips from favourite missions? Or that you could choose precisely how many minutes - or kilometres - a mission should take? Now it's easier than ever to run your way.

But that's not all! We've added a whole host of extra stats to your Run Logs, and your map trace now shows how fast you've run – along with the location of those terrifying zombie chases.

Wait, there's more! While you're running, your key stats are clearer than ever, and you can check out your run route with a single tap. Shared run logs look much nicer, and you can choose whether you share a map, photo, or mission banner. Story missions link directly to Codex entries, so you can catch up on the plot with ease.

And there's even more! But you'll need to update the app to find out...

We can't wait for you to try out this update – we think it's our best update yet. And if you enjoy playing the game, please rate and review us on iTunes, it really helps!

Editors' Notes

Add excitement to your run by escaping the zombie horde.

Bad. Waste of time.


Each episode is jus a few seconds. You have to manually click STOP and find the next episode to play. No zombie chasing. I rather listen to a real audio book on zombies.

For the zombie fan & runner who to feel "zomg zombies!"

Zombie Chief Chef

Its steep price is a put-off, (i am only used to pay .99 or 1.99 for apps, this is the first time i'm buying a 7.99 one)
however the voice actings are add a nice touch to your runs inbetween playlists and occassionally turned my head nervously when i hear zombie groans.

Tracking seems ok though not sure how well the app tracks your speed via GPS. I jogged slow when i anticipated the ending of my songs to ready myself for sprints during their "episodes"

Actual information is a little lacking for my tastes as i'm used to Runkeeper which displays more info than just time, distance, average pace. Would definately like to have a graph showing the actual paces during sections of the runs (especially during zombie mobbing else why else would we run ourselves ragged if we succumbed to "slow run" before said mobbing and moderate jog during mobbing and yay we "survived")

All in all though it's a nice app and idea, needs refining but i'm sure (hoping with my fingers crossed) that they'll come and make our $$ worthwhile.
