Zombies, Run!

Six to Start
Get ready for the run of your life. Join 1,000,000+ 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 all 200+ story missions immediately for unlimited play, plus Interval Training and Airdrop Mode. Pro is available for $2.99/month or $19.99/year. Your subscription will not automatically renew. (Existing paid players will have access to a special discounted membership rate, plus free access to all game modes and S1-3 missions).

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.

Saving the world not exciting enough? Activate Chases to kick things up a notch. When you hear zombies on your six, it’s time to speed up before they get too close. Can you escape every mob, or will you have to drop some of your hard-earned supplies to distract them? There’s only one way to find out.

View detailed graphs and stats for your entire running and game progress — and check out which songs you play the most while escaping zombies!

Every time you run, you’ll automatically collect vital supplies like medicine, batteries and food. Once you’re home, you can use them 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 4.0
Get ready, Runner 5. It’s time to save the world, one more time.

Raise the gates: this is our biggest update ever! How big? We’re now free-to-play! You’ve been telling your friends about Zombies, Run! for years. Now it's easier than ever for them to help you defend Abel Township.

Existing players (which is pretty much all of you): Your support has kept us going for the past three years. Your season pass purchases, your love of our story and our characters, your feedback and wonderful words of support. You are the engine behind Zombies, Run! So we’re now giving you access to every single mission up to the end of Season 3 - plus Interval Training and Race Missions and all 150+ story missions. For free.

Season 4: Our new season is packed full of thrills, scares, laughs, and feels. We think it’s our best season yet. You can unlock one mission every week for free, or upgrade to Pro Membership for unlimited access. Because you’ve supported us, Pro Membership costs only $7.99 a year ($19.99 for new players).

Auto-play next run: Like popcorn, a single ZR mission is never enough. Now you can indulge your binge-running desires by having the next mission start automatically after the first finishes. Perfect for those days when you’re just hitting your stride as Sam calls you home.

Improved support for music: Thelma and Louise. Butch and Sundance. Zombies, Run! and kickass music. Perfect pairings. This one just got better. You only need to start Spotify, Google Play Music, Pandora, or any other music app before you run, and we’ll lower your music volume when Abel Township gets in touch.

Zombie chase difficulty: One size *doesn’t* fit all. That’s why you can now adjust chases to fit your mood perfectly. Fancy an easier run to get yourself back in form? Tweak the zombie mob frequency or speed in Settings. Want to feel like all the hounds of hell are on your heels? We’re right there with you. Zombie chases: scare yourself fit on your own terms.

Mission synopses: You’ve come a long way, Runner 5. Saved the world more times than you can count. Travelled countless miles and outrun danger at every turn. That’s a lot to remember - which is why all missions now have synopses so you can re-live your favourite moments from Abel history.

Previously on, and Next ons: Been a while since your last mission? Let our “Previously on Zombies, Run!” clips remind you what’s going on at Abel. Need even more reasons to raise the gates for your next run? The brand-new “Next On” teasers will get your blood pumping and your feet moving.

Brand new design: Zombies, Run! has never looked better. Janine’s been hard at work giving every surface a new coat of paint, every menu a polish and every screen that little bit of extra flair. Even better: every mission now has a glorious piece of banner artwork meaning our story now looks as good as it sounds.

Estimated mission duration: Do I have time for a run before work? What if this is a really long mission? Worry no more: we now show you the estimated duration of every story mission.

Base Builder: Getting Abel Township off the ground used to be really tricky. Not enough materials, complicated pre-requisites for buildings, pricey base extensions. That’s why we tweaked the base builder to make it more balanced, easier to understand, and much more fun. Now rebuilding Abel is as much fun as running from it!

Customisable Clip Spacing: ZR is all about your run, your music, and your pace. Now you can precisely adjust how often we play story clips. Out for a short run? Get those clips playing more often so you can fit in the whole mission. Training for a marathon? Spread them out so we’re with you the whole way round. Your run, your way.

And we now sync with Apple Health!

Coming soon:

Improved Zombielink sync: Edit and delete run logs from your phone and see those changes reflected on Zombielink (and vice versa).

Apple Watch: View and control your missions from your wrist. It’s the future!
