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...)

Wonderful I don't consider myself a runner but thi app is changing my mind. The story is engaging and the music integration a great feature. I love that I can syn my run and see calories burn, maps and distance online. Great app!

This is no c25k The concept of the app is good, but this is a horrible way of training c25k. 15 second run on week one? A 10 minute warmup? And a 10 minute "free form" run... Seriously guys, get this stuff together and make it a real and decent program, you'll find them anywhere online. Also you are limited to the internal music player, since the app doesn't duck the music from external players like Spotify and such, which runkeeper does do for example. For me this was a misbuy, and I'm ashamed I can't get my money back.

Simply Amazing I used to think nothing could make me run regularly, but when I came across this app after many times of starting running and giving up after a few days - boy was I in for a surprise! Zombies, Run! got me to run for weeks every second or third day and before long the exercises begun to pay off. One of the best things that ever happened to me for sure :)

Needs improvement for beginners This app should use GPS and an algorithm to determine when you should turn around and head home. I've over worked by being miles away from home when I'm done with a workout.

Zombies Run! Great app but always remember to log in before you start a run or you won't be able to sync that run and complete your board. Edit: Just finished the final week on to season 1. Just one note a mono button would be great so you could keep one ear open. If I take one ear bud out I end up missing story or prompts.
