Supports all your favorite wearables and apps

The Outbreak™ syncs directly with popular devices like Apple Watch, Fitbit and Garmin, or you can sync your activity from your favorite wearable or fitness app through Apple Health (on iOS) or Google Fit (on Android). 

Don’t have a wearable? No problem! The Outbreak™ can sync steps using just your smartphone. Just remember to bring it with you!


Does The Outbreak™ app need to be open while I walk/exercise?

No. You can walk and exercise throughout the day, then spend your activity in The Outbreak™ app to advance your adventure forward at any time.

How do steps and exercise fit into the experience?

In each Outbreak Mission you’ll be chased from behind by a horde of hungry zombies. If you fall behind, you risk being turned. You stay ahead of the horde and progress toward your distance target using your steps.

Along the way, you’ll run into obstacles that block your path. Obstacles range from everyday packs of zombies to creatures, barricades, and boss villains. You use your exercise to battle/conquer obstacles, as well as heal yourself and/or your teammates when you take health damage.

How do medals work?

Simple, just finish the target distance within the maximum time allowed and we’ll mail you the race’s finisher medal at the end of your race.

We do require that you complete your race to earn its medal, so lace up your shoes and get moving!

How do teams work?

Teams are our favorite way to experience The Outbreak™! It’s easy to get started… you can either purchase race Tickets for your teammates or invite them to purchase their own Tickets to join your Mission.

Teams can be 1-10 players and distance targets are per team member.

For example, if a team of 3 plays Escape™ (a 60-mile race), the team will have to collective cover 180 miles (3 x 60).

Obstacles also scale to your team size, so the bigger your team, the more zombies you’ll have to fight!

Can I choose my own start date?

Yep, start now or schedule it to start at a future date. The world is your oyster!

I already use another exercise app... how does The Outbreak™ fit in?

We’re firm believers that there are already plenty of “trainer” apps out there that guide you through a workout or run. That’s why we designed The Outbreak™ to be complementary to those types of apps. 

You can still you use your favorite exercise app, and when you’re done, open up The Outbreak™ to sync your activity and advance your adventure forward.

In other words, The Outbreak™ is less concerned with how you get your steps and exercise, and more concerned with giving you a why.

I'm a (insert fitness level here)... is The Outbreak™ right for me?

Absolutely! The Outbreak™ is for all fitness levels.

If you’re just starting (or re-starting) your fitness journey, it can be really difficult to self-generate the right amount of motivation and consistency needed to get your fitness routine to embed as a fully-formed lifestyle habit, and The Outbreak™ is a great tool for helping you get there.

If fitness is already part of your lifestyle, The Outbreak™ enhances what you’re already doing by turning your fitness into an interactive adventure. If you’re bored with the same old routines, The Outbreak™ is for you!

there’s no other virtual run like The Outbreak™, but you don’t have to take our word for it

With over 3,700 reviews and counting, The Outbreak™ has a stellar 4.8 / 5 rating on the App Store.
