Zombies, Run!

By Six to Start

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Get ready for the run of your life. Join 3 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 240+ 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 have to drop some of your hard-earned supplies to distract them?

Every time you 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 in Version 5.0

Season 5. Runner 5. Version 5. It's a sign of great things!

Season 5 is here! Forget your Jon Snow and your White Walkers. We’ve got Runner Five and the Zombies. Who cares about The Governor when you’ve got The Minister? Does any character in any medium even compare to Sam Yao? While we’re on air, everyone else better step back, because we've got 40 fantastic missions that'll make your runs more exciting than ever before. And naturally, if you're a Pro Member, you get unlimited ad-free access!

And there’s plenty more to enjoy in our 5.0 update. We’ve introduced an all-new Base Builder interface that makes it easier than ever to grow your Abel Township. You now get 100% of your materials and supplies back when you demolish a building. That means you can reorganise your base to your heart's content, with no penalty - which is handy, because we’ll soon be adding a whole range of new buildings to accompany Season 4 and 5 missions!

Last but not least, we’ve improved our VoiceOver accessibility for the base builder, so everyone can get involved, along with other general UI improvements and bug fixes.

We won’t ask you to rate Zombies, Run! in the app, but if you’re enjoying saving the world, please take a moment to rate and review us in the App Store - it helps a lot!

Customer Reviews

Unbelievably Excellent

I don't often write reviews, let alone five-star reviews, but this app deserves it in every way. The run tracker works great as many would hope it would to track your pace, distance, and total run time. The base builder is a nice touch, and an especially genius motivator, since one of the biggest things these days are base builder apps like Clash of Clans and Boom Beach. Fans of those types of games will find the base builder a great motivator to run more since running makes it possible to collect supplies to improve your base. The story, though, is truly the app's best feature. A great mix of drama and comedy that's one of the most forward thinking tales I've ever seen. By that, I mean the characters come in all shapes, sizes, personalities, and genders. It is also extremely well written and entertaining; I find myself wanting to go for longer and more frequent runs so that I can get more of the story using the Continue To Next Mission feature. If you want to start running to train for a marathon, 5k, 10k, or just want to lose a few pounds, this is the app for you.

Motivational, Clever & Entertaining

I'm addicted! So far I've lost one dress size and I'm still on season 1! I feel energized and overall much happier both at home & work.
There's enough storyline to keep me engaged but it allows me to enjoy my tunes as I'm jogging / walking. There's a 'game' that allows you to build your township. It usually takes me 5-10 minutes while I do some stretching to use up the items I earned during the work out.
I splurged on the in app purchase so that I can control the Zombie attacks. My husband & I go for our evening walks (no Zombie attacks) and I run supply missions in one ear piece. He gets a laugh when I tell him the items we pick up.
A couple times a week I jog to a mission and love that I can change how many times the Zoms will attack & how much I need to speed up to out run them.
It's very clever- the tracking is great! If I slow down or stop a voice will come on prompting me to speed up for various reasons.

Crashing issues....

I'm not a person who writes reviews - ever. But this app I have loved from the moment I paid for and downloaded it. As a chronic asthmatic, I've worked hard to achieve the feat of running.

That said, with the new 5.0 update, it's crashing before it loads, or during a supply side mission, force closing. I use this app mainly on my iPod touch 5th gen with the newest iOS version installed. Freak thing going on or are others experiencing this? I was at least able to sign up for zombielink so I wouldn't lose my base or run data, as I was afraid that would happen with the crashing issues.

Hoping this can be resolved soon. Super big fan of this app, use it daily, and recommend to other runners all the time! I honestly can't say this enough - of all the exercise/health apps I've downloaded, this is my go to app! With this app, I'll totally be ready for Z-day!
