With the launch of Season 8, Zombies, Run! brings new stories for beginners and veterans alike, along with a major redesign.

Zombies, Run! is an ultra-immersive running game and audio adventure for iPhone and Android, created by Six to Start and award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman. Over five million players worldwide run to the perfect mix of heart-pumping audio drama and pulse-pounding songs from their own playlists.

Season 8 of Zombies, Run was launched on 15 May 2019, introducing huge new features including New Adventures – a set of unique stories outside Zombies, Run! canon, ranging from epic thrillers and races against to exciting historical and scientific adventures – in-progress run saving, new Season 8 missions, and a major edesign to make the app faster and easier to use than ever.

Zombies, Run! can be downloaded for free from the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store. A paid "Abel Runner's Club" subscription is available to unlock unlimited access to all game modes and features. Existing players who previously purchased the app will receive the first three seasons for free and a significant discount on Abel Runner's Club membership.


Six to Start are the co-creators of Zombies, Run! and The Walk.

Originally launched as a successful Kickstarter project in 2011, Zombies, Run! is the world's most popular smartphone fitness game, available on iOS and Android. Over one million players bought the app at a price between $3.99 to $7.99, with hundreds of thousands playing every month.

In May 2015, Zombies, Run! became free-to-play, with new players given unlimited access to the first four missions and the ability to unlock one additional mission per week. An Abel Runner's Club membership is available on a monthly and annual basis, which unlocks unlimited access to all missions and game modes.

As a thank-you for their support, existing players who previously purchased the app were given unlimited access to the first three seasons and all existing game modes. These players also receive a significant discount on Abel Runner's Club membership.
