The Walk is a smart phone app that plays a serialized adventure audio drama while you walk. In the drama, a terrorist attack has rendered all motorized transport unusable and “you're given a package that could save the world”, which you must deliver on foot. The apps uses the GPS built into your device to track how far and how fast you are moving, then drops in a series of audio messages about the story developing all around you.

A bomb explodes in Inverness station, and you're given a package that could save the world. To stay alive, you'll need to walk the length of the UK.

You'll walk the length of the UK while evading capture by the police and enemy agents. Can you work out who set off that bomb in the first place and what their plan is? Get ready for an epic adventure across 65 episodes, 800 minutes of audio, and hundreds of miles.

The Walk is created by Six to Start, the same company behind Zombies, Run!.

In 2018, The Walk was also released a free podcast, compiling the episodes from the interactive app.

A thriller in which you, the listener, are the hero. The Walk begins in Inverness station, Scotland. Through a case of mistaken identity, you, “the walker,” are given a vital package that must be couriered to Edinburgh. But as you're about to board the train, terrorists blow it up and set off an electromagnetic pulse! None of the cars or trains are working - you'll have to walk - but now the terrorists are on your trail because they want the device you're carrying, and the police are after you as a suspect in the bombing. To survive, you'll have to join up with other escapees from the city - but how many of them can you trust, and are they really who they say they are?
