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...)

Gamify everything! I got this along with Zombies, Run! in Sept. 2013 after 2 years of being unable to stand up or walk regularly. I worked through the 5k and then progressed onto the "all zombies, all the time" version. Major, fun incentive to get myself running regularly again once I could manage. If you need a reason to exercise, surviving the hypothetical zombie apocalypse is (for many of us) at the top of the list. Amazing use of gamification. My only suggestion would be a way to incorporate Pandora/ Grooveshark/ etc. for music inclusion as many people no longer load music onto our devices. I had real trouble getting my music loud enough without drowning out the Zombies, Run! content.

Doing good Not entirely intuitive. Voice instructions could be a little more clear. Already improving with every run! Thanks!

Great concept, frustrating bugs The workouts are a great way to get yourself started running consistently. Unfortunately, the story is too slow to really keep you distracted during a run so make sure you have a really good playlist loaded. The app loses two stars because of buggy playlist handling. Every single workout required a pause and restart during the run because the playlist wouldn't advance without it. The app hasn't been updated in a while and doesn't appear on the developer's page, so it may be abandoned.
