S5 M3 & 4 Released


Forget your Jon Snow and your White Walkers. We’ve got Runner Five and the Zombies. Who cares about The Governor when you’ve got The Minister? Does any character in any medium even compare to Sam Yao? While we’re releasing, everyone else better step back. And we’ve got two hot new missions for you this week. 

S5M3: Thorn In My Side

S5M4: Hanging On The Telephone

We are not playing with these. Abel needs you, Runner Five. Get after it. 

If you’re a pro member, you can get both of these right now and run them before you eat your next meal. Otherwise, you can unlock either one right now with your free weekly unlock and save the other as a treat for later. 

Let us know what you think in the comments or on twitter (zombiesrungame) and stay safe out there!

Spring 2016 Virtual Race: Completed!


With nearly 4500 runs from 65 countries, the Spring 2016 Virtual Race has come to an end. Congratulations to all the Operatives 5 who took part!

We were super proud to hear that some of you set PRs, or were even racing for the very first time. Great job!


Here are just a few of the finisher’s pictures we received – thank you all!


In total, runners covered an incredible distance of 30,864km run during the race. You can check out all of the stats, including times by country, on the race leaderboard.

If you missed out on this Virtual Race – never fear. We’re planning more events like this in the future. To be the first to find out about upcoming Virtual Races, make sure you’re signed up to the mailing list.

Season Five. It’s here.

You know the old sayings; The best things come in Fives. Five’s company. A bird in the hand is worth Five in the bush. Here’s a new one: Zombies, Run! Season Five launches today

Runner Five. Season Five. It’s no coincidence that this is the most thrilling, most unexpected and brilliant season of Zombies, Run! to date. There are shocks, struggles and surprises galore awaiting you this season. Are you ready? No. Whatever you think, you are not ready for this. But here it is anyway. 

You can download missions one and two of Season Five right now from the ‘Missions’ tab in your Zombies, Run! app, even without needing to upgrade. If you’re a pro member, you can download and play both missions immediately. Otherwise, you can use your free weekly unlock to play either of these missions. 

So lace up your shoes, eat five curly-wurlies, construct a protective shield out of sports bras, and get out there. Abel needs you, Runner Five. 

One Week to Season Five

There’s just seven days until Season Five launches! Just one week until there’s excitement, drama, thrills, adrenaline, and of course, thrills galore…

Like last year, we’ll be releasing two episodes per week, with a hiatus during late June and July, before resuming the story in August. The good news is that we have a very special, very secret treat that’ll tide you over during that hiatus. More soon 😉


Hey ZR Fam! So, as we all know, Season Five is just around the corner, and I don’t know about you, but I’m super excited. Thing is, there are people in the fandom who aren’t fully caught up all the way. So I figured this would be the perfect time for me to re-paint my spoilers detected header I did a few years ago!

This image is free to use on all Zombies, Run! reaction posts, mission summary posts, meta, art, fic, you name it! 

We are a fandom that prides itself on it’s organization and extensive tagging and spoiler warning system. I seriously encourage all of you to use this image, spoiler warnings, readmores, and whatever else you may like to help prevent spoilers from spreading. Save it, have it on your computer, and bust it out whenever you need!

Have a great Season Five, guys!
