From what I can piece together it's an immersive app for the iPhone which enables you to follow a storyline whilst running.
You take the role of Runner 5 who is going out to collect essential items to take back to a small band of survivors, occasionally being chased by zombies!
It sounds BRILLIANT but it's £5 on the app store and I'm too tight to just go ahead and buy it without other recommendations first!
Has anyone tried it? Or even heard of it?

Did you try this in the end OP? It sounds AWESOME smile

I know this is an old thread but I just had to say that I use this and it s AWESOME!

Can I bump this thread? I've been dithering for ages about zombie run. Any other reviews?

Currently half price!!

Sorry jumped on quickly from App Store. Thought I'd give it a go for £2.49. Will report back.

Thanks for the tip! Reckon I can take a punt at that price. Will update once I've tried it out

I'm slightly tempted by this. I reckon it would be good training for this.

I use it and it's ace!!! It has unknowingly speeded my times up I guess through the sprint intervals and it is really good fun. It also syncs with the runkeeper app, which I use.
Is great fun and really worth a try, the story is lots of fun!

On warning though, don't use it on a dark run unless you want to spend half your time scaring yourself witless and shrieking at everyone coming out of the shadows... Not that I've ever done that of course...

I am bumping this as I want to see if people have any more reviews of it! Is it good for a beginner runner?!

Trying2bMindful Sat 26-Oct-13 21:15:21

what was the verdict.... any good? (she says with halloween on the way - what a great way to start running!!)

I have the 5k one, which I like a lot. I think the proper app is much better storywise.

Trying2bMindful Sun 27-Oct-13 23:01:35

thanks H. will tell DH - more his thing than mine, but I am v curious smile

I'm on week 1 day 3. I am loving it, well worth the money. I'm not sure if it has gone down in price in UK since op posted but I paid €1.89. Only other thing I've got to add is my thighs are killing and sitting down on the toilet is near impossiblegrin

I've signed up too, I really want to like running so I shall give this a whirl. It was £2.19 on the google play store if anyone is interested.
Sounds like a good exercise idea!

I was chased by zombies on my run this morning. Was fun! I've only done it a couple of times so far and it's taken me a while to work out how it works e.g. that radio transmissions come on automatically once your mission has ended. Initially I was doing it without a playlist, which was confusing as it was difficult to tell if the app had stopped working or nothing was happening for a while. I also don't really get the stats graphs that come up once you've downloaded your missions. Despite all that, running from the undead is very motivating.

I think I'm going to try this - any advice? I've done couch to 5k once but I'm very slow and I'm hoping this will be fun and get me running a bit faster.

delbee Wed 22-Jan-14 13:25:54

Kewcumber I'm on week three and the running has increased. Was totally knackered but so enjoyed it. I'm finding it better than the normal c25k. X

Kewcumber Wed 22-Jan-14 13:53:25

oooh i'm so tempted...

delbee Wed 22-Jan-14 16:02:41

Go for it!! You'll be running 5k in 8 weeks without a problem��

Standingonlego Sat 25-Jan-14 22:03:39

I need some new running mojo....maybe the undead are the answer...

MrsLovely Mon 27-Jan-14 21:16:14

I have just realised-only two years later- I have replies to my OP!

I never did buy the app but have recently started C25k.....am now off to see how much it is currently, am very excited that I might finally get to use it!

I bought it this morning and I love it a bit already. I get a little bit anxious about running and using the app made that anxiety go. These people need me grin

Have you got started with your C25K? How's the running going?

TheZeeTeam Sun 27-Apr-14 15:34:13

I love it! It livens up a run on your own. Only problem is, I often run in woods so occasionally I manage to freak myself out! blush
