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...)

For the first time ever, I don't hate running! Echoing others in that it'd be nice to have the ability to listen to Spotify or Google Music, but for eight weeks I can deal with being limited to the music I've got saved to a hard drive.

doesn't recognizes Google play or it's downloaded music folder. This is a great app but missing a crucial feature for those who don't store music on there phone. Needs internet radio integration.Will give 5 stars as soon as feature is added. running more enjoyable.always hated to run do instead I played soccer to get my running in.now I'm been running for 4 weeks straight.can't wait to get into zombie run.

Love it! Made me a better runner because they make you WANT to follow the progress of the narrative. The full Zombies Run is even better! But start here if you don't run yet. This is the prequel to the full game. :)

Great training, story keeps you coming back If you remember the old radio dramas, and you are looking for a couch-to-5k app, you will love this. Plays your music, and the characters cut in (dimming the music) to give you instructions, encouragement, or to just say something witty. You will meet several characters while training to run your first 5k! Each week is a new interval training routine, getting progressively harder, and reminding you to cool down and stretch at the end. Finding out what happens keeps you coming back.
