Believe it or not, but a lot of our players don’t always run with Zombies, Run! Our game is designed for running, jogging, and walking outside and on treadmills, and we have new modes like The Home Front tailor-made for bodyweight fitness (with a dedicated Home Workout mode coming soon!), but we often get asked if you can play our hundreds of running missions without running.
And the answer is: Yes!
Thanks to our Simulate Running mode (previously called Constant Pace), you can set up a simulated running speed and you’ll still hear our awesome story and collect all the supplies and materials and artefacts you need to rebuild Abel Township! Just tap the Tracking button below “Start Mission”.
(You can also use No Tracking if you’d rather not have simulated distances appear in your Run Logs and Statistics.)
Here are some ideas of how you can simulate running as winter approaches in the northern hemisphere!
If you’re on a rowing machine, why not speed through a 2000m distance with a quick simulated running pace and a short mission duration?
Prefer exercise bikes or spinning? Turn on back-to-back Story Missions for a long ride through the zombie apocalypse!
You can even do home workouts or bodyweight fitness or even household chores while “running”!
You won’t get zombie chases with Simulate Running or No Tracking, but you can still speed up or intensify your exercise when characters tell you to move – as they often do in our story.
Stay safe out there, and keep it up, Runner 5!
