Season 1, race 3
A grueling race against time to break the siege of the Wardens’ treetop fortress, Crusoe, is complicated when a ravenous pack of zombie wolves picks up your scent. With the wolfpack hot on your heels you’ll have to move quick if you’re to survive and save The Wardens.

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!
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.
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.
Medals are an optional add-on to our virtual races.
If you purchase a Ticket + Medal entry up front, we’ll automatically mail your medal when you finish your race.
If you purchase a Ticket only entry, no medal will be included, but you’ll have the opportunity to add one once you finish the race.
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!
Yep, start now or schedule your Mission to start at a future date. The world is your oyster!
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.
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!
