New Running App RunWith Streamlines Communication and Keeps Runners Social and Motivated
Running enthusiasts can breathe easy this week with the launch of new fitness app, RunWith, which makes it easy for runners to find, plan and communicate with new or existing running buddies. The app brings a much needed social element to the mobile fitness phenomenon that has emerged with the growing popularity of smartphones and other mobile devices. While many running apps track only individual performance, RunWith allows users to search for planned runs, organize their own and instantaneously communicate with other likeminded runners. All this with the convenience of fingertip access.
Mark Melton, Founder, said, “RunWith provides runners with mobile, interactive and socially-driven tools that keep runners running. We have packed the app with functions that we know runners will not only love, but will also find useful.”
The app features three core functions that are set to make running easier, safer and more social than ever. ‘Explore’ allows users to search for runs that are scheduled to occur nearby and keeps members up to date with when their next group run is planned.
‘Join’ gives users the option of signing up to local groups and getting in touch with the organizers of runs in which they want to participate.
‘Communicate’ ties the ‘Explore’ and ‘Join’ functions together, offering users an easy and instant means of posting planned runs, managing schedules, notifying groups and chatting in real time with other members.
Finding the motivation is often the most difficult part of keeping up a good running routine. By directly connecting an active network of users, RunWith makes fitness easy and is the key to getting running shoe-clad feet out the door and pounding the pavement.
“RunWith has really simplified my running experience and makes it easy to keep track of and communicate with all of my running connections. Instead of keeping up with multiple email and texts, I can now stay in touch with my running buddies all from one easy to use place. It's also a great way to meet new people to run with and to discover new places to run” says satisfied RunWith user Jay M.
RunWith is suitable for all levels of intensity, from casual runs and morning jogs to fully fledged long distance runs or sprint training sessions. Users are free to explore the app at their own pace and tailor schedules, routes and group membership numbers to suit their individual needs. The app even includes access to a coach-designed run library which helps users train for events and track progress.
“It’s the perfect app for anybody that is training” says RunWith user Leigh R.
The mobile and interactive nature of RunWith means users can find training partners at the touch of a button. A user simply has to download the app to their smartphone and they have instantaneous access to the schedules of an entire network of runners. Whether the run is a regular weekly occurrence or a spur of the moment burst of motivation, the app has the power to connect runners no matter what their chosen route.
