About this app

Zombies, Run! 5k Training is an 8-week training program and audio adventure for beginners that’ll improve your fitness so you can run a 5km distance.

We give you clear and detailed instructions about when to walk, jog, run and stretch, building up your confidence and stamina over 25 workouts - combined with a gripping story delivered straight to your headphones.

(If you already have running experience, check out our “Zombies, Run!” app with extra features including 200 more missions, Zombie Chase interval training, a base-building game, time and distance audio notifications, and more!)

Zombies, Run! 5k Training comes from the creators of Zombies, Run! (Six to Start & Naomi Alderman), the world’s most successful smartphone exercise game with 4 million players worldwide.

Featured by the New York Times, BBC, Time, Wired, and Runner's World!

Devised by Julia Jones and Shauna Reid of Up and Running e-courses, this 8-week, 25 workout training program combines awesome storytelling with expert training know-how. Using this app isn’t just good for you - it’s also amazingly exciting!

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!”

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!

Unlock all 25 workouts for unlimited play by subscribing to the Abel Runner's Club, from just $34.99 USD/year!

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. Supports Spotify, Pandora, Google Play Music, and more!

Check out your run stats and pause and complete runs – all without touching your phone.

View split-time graphs and stats for your running and game progress!

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.

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.

You get full and unlimited access to this new 5k Training app - just make sure you have the old app installed and updated.

Just did the first mission today, and I am so HOOKED! This was such a blast! My running route ended in perfect timing, too. Just as I started running for my car in the distance, pretending it was the safe house, the gunshots started as Runner 5 made it to the town. I'm very new to running and was looking for an app that would help me to pace myself as I grow as a runner, so I don't go too hard too fast. I was NOT expecting to find something so dang fun with such great production quality. 5⭐!

I hate running. But, the story was really engaging and motivated me to actually finish all 8 weeks! I'm still walking and jogging more than running, but it's a start. One thing I noticed is that after you complete Week 8, Run 3 it doesn't show as Completed on your dashboard or the meter thing to track progress. It's fortunately in the run logs (or else I would have been really upset! That was my fastest run by far!)

Let me caveat this: I happily pay for the yearly subscription on 'Zombies, Run!'. After I had Littlest Runner5, I wanted to build back up. This app isn't good. It's not worth $4. It's not integrated with ZR!, & when it crashes (it will if you are using any other apps while you run. My camera & messenger apps have both crashed it) you have to restart the whole mission. Guys, you've fixed this! Why does it still happen on this? The story line doesn't add much, just get the main game & a good plan.

Hi! To stop the app from closing, try changing your battery optimization settings: Go to Settings - Device Maintenance Tap Battery Scroll to Unmonitored Apps Tap the 3-dot menu Add Zombies, Run! To the list of unmonitored Apps Alternative, switch off App Power Monitor altogether
