GET FIT AND BECOME A HERO
Youâre Runner 5, a vital member of one of the last outposts of humanity at Abel Township. During 25 workouts, youâll 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. Youâll learn about the characters, and youâll have a vital mission of your own to train for and complete. Once your training is complete, youâll be in the perfect place to continue the story as the hero in âZombies, Run!â

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 sync your runs with Runkeeper and export them as GPX files.

(But if youâre looking to find out what happens after Zombies, Run!âs epic cliffhanger, youâll need to wait for Season 2...)
