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.”
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. Play the first four missions for free and unlock one extra mission every week.

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!
KEEP THE SURVIVORS ALIVE
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.
