About this app

Created with the NHS and the UK's Department of Health, The Walk helps you walk more, every single day. When you’re playing The Walk, every step counts.

A bomb explodes in Inverness station, and you’re given a package that could save the world. To stay alive, you’ll need to walk the length of the UK. The Walk is more than just a great pedometer/step counter — it's a way to turn walking into a journey, a challenge, and a rip-roaring adventure.

Made by Six to Start and Naomi Alderman, creators of the world’s most popular running game with over 5 million players, Zombies, Run!

ENGADGET - “Simple, fun, effective.”
JOYSTIQ - "Spices up your step-tracking with some danger and intrigue.”
BBC NEWS - “Encourages users to walk 10,000 steps-a-day to help improve their health”
LIFEHACKER - “You're motivated to actually get up and move around so you can progress further into the story, and it works really well.”

Just put your phone in your pocket or purse and we’ll track every walk and run you take — and map it, too!

You’ll walk the length of the UK while evading capture by the police and enemy agents. Can you work out who set off that bomb in the first place and what their plan is? Get ready for an epic adventure across 65 episodes, 800 minutes of audio, and hundreds of miles.

Get rewarded for walking more by collecting clues, scanning for information, and unlocking achievements.

The Walk adjusts its difficulty based on individual fitness levels. Everyone’s different, and we make sure we give you the right level of challenge!

Unplayable. I bought the game with the legacy version, and I don't have access even after installing the legacy app. Very frustrating. I've replayed the beginning of this game about four times now after encountering blocking bugs, over multiple years (I started playing sometime before 2016, so this is not an exaggeration). I'd really like to find out how the game ends someday. UPDATE: Support was able to help me, after some back-and-forth. Added a star.

Program is very dull. Installed 1st of October and had to keep it open on top of everything to even start the challenge. Had to update fit for it to register my walks. Which have been any where from 30 minutes to 2 hours and don't get credit for it. Been a zombie run fan since finding that program but this 1 I'm deleting it due to inability to even know what some things are.

I really enjoy the episodes and the story and have no problems with getting the regular episodes to work exactly how I want them to. My main disappointment is with the challenges, which require me to have the app open and pulled up at all times in order to collect items on them--it makes it impossible to play simultaneously with another program (like PokemonGo or Zombies Run), or to play when walking with my husband. I'd much prefer to be able to turn on the challenge and set my route, and then have it collect the items in the background so I could do other things.
