Stay alive and learn to run 5k with Zombies, Run! 5k Training for iPhone

Six to Start has released a new version of its Zombies, Run! audio adventure called Zombies, Run! 5k Training. The new app will improve your fitness and help you to run a 5k race in just eight weeks.

You know, just in case a zombie apocalypse breaks out and you need to run for your life. Good to be prepared.

The app takes a professionally designed program of 25 workouts (devised by Julia Jones and Shauna Reid of Up and Running) and combines it with a story penned by novelist Naomi Alderman.

What's at stake

In this tale you take on the role of Runner 5 - a member of one of the last human outposts in Abel Township. During your workouts you'll find food, gather supplies, and protect your abode against armies of flesh-eating walkers.

You'll also learn about various characters and receive instructions right through your headphones as you jog, run, and sprint for your life.

Zombies, Run! 5k Training costs £2.49 / $3.99, and works on iPhone and iPod touch. It sounds like one of the most fun ways to get fit that the App Store has to offer. We would try it out, but it's bloody freezing out. Rather you than me.
