A workout app, whether you believe in zombies or not
Zombies, Run is the most successful fitness app so far, and here's its first spin-off, prequel, you name it, with the only goal to prepare you to run 5 kilometers (3 miles). It's thought that if you're able to run such a distance in a reasonable time, your chances of surviving the first day of a zombie outbreak raise 32%, which seems a good reason to be fit unless you prefer to be food (best pun today!). It also helps your heart and lungs.
Either way, this app is designed for even those who haven't ever run a mile, yes, you who ride the car to go to the grocery next block. And it's really fun. Give it a go, and give a go to yourself by the way.
Once you are a little bit more prepared, run to Zombies Run!
(If you already have some running experience, check out our “Zombies, Run!” app with extra features including 30 more missions, ‘zombie chase’ interval training, a base-building game, time and distance audio notifications, and more!)
Zombies, Run! 5k Training comes from the creators of Zombies, Run! (Six to Start & Naomi Alderman), the world’s most successful smartphone exercise game with 800,000+ players worldwide.

A PROFESSIONALLY DESIGNED 5K TRAINING PROGRAM
Devised by Julia Jones and Shauna Reid of Up and Running e-courses, this 8-week, 25 workout training program combines awesome storytelling with expert training know-how. Using this app isn’t just good for you - it’s also amazingly exciting!
GET FIT AND BECOME A HERO
You’re Runner 5, a vital member of one of the last outposts of humanity at Abel Township. During 25 workouts, you’ll be trained to help find supplies and protect the town from the ever-encroaching horde of the shambling dead, in a story written by award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman. You’ll learn about the characters, and you’ll have a vital mission of your own to train for and complete. Once your training is complete, you’ll be in the perfect place to continue the story as the hero in “Zombies, Run!”
PERFECT FOR BEGINNERS
Everything about Zombies, Run! 5k Training is designed for beginner runners: clear and detailed workout instructions, a gentle learning curve, and importantly, we don’t make any zombies chase you until you’re ready!
YOUR OWN MIX
Choose your own custom music playlists before you start running: the story unfolds in during your tracks through a series of dynamic radio messages and voice recordings.
VIEW YOUR RUNS ONLINE WITH ZOMBIELINK
We integrate fully with our free online ZombieLink service, so you can check your running stats and view and share your maps online, all in a beautiful and easy-to-use interface! Plus you can export your runs to Runkeeper via ZombieLink.
ALREADY PLAYED ZOMBIES, RUN!?
Zombies, Run! 5k Training takes place between Mission 1 and Mission 2 of Season 1, so it’s a fantastic way to experience 24 all-new missions about how Runner 5 first trained up with Sam, Doctor Myers, and the rest of Abel Township to become a valued Runner. (But if you’re looking to find out what happens after Zombies, Run!’s epic cliffhanger, you’ll need to wait for Season 2...)

I've been meaning to start running regularly again, but couldn't muster the will to do so, so I bought this hoping something fun might motivate me. So far I'm already covering more distance than I normally would on a jog and I'm having a good time doing i
App is really motivating and gets you up and out.
It's a wonderful training app and fun story, but tries a Playlist called "quick list" that doesn't exist on my phone with no option to change and is incredibly slow to load. I suppose no music to run with then. Wish it was more like the first app.
I love the idea of this program. I bought it because it was a funny idea and I needed something different. However, it doesn't live up to it's potential. First, the running program itself is odd and I don't think properly prepares you to make it throug
