App Store Description

Team-focused Running Data Collection and Analytics System:
Flats or Spikes is built from the ground up for teams to collect, analyze, and visualize running data using just their phones. Flats or Spikes replaces paper data collection at any running event with teammates recording times at splits to enable a unique team-based running data collection system. Stop spending hours doing data entry every week. Share the work! Flats or Spikes allows everyone to capture data easily—and correctly—in the moment and in one place.

Using our proprietary phone-based timing system, split times are captured and pacing analytics are instantly calculated and shared. Not only do we foster instant coach-athlete feedback during and right after a race, we also save hours of time on data entry per week.

We make team management, communication, and logistics easy, too. Our mission is to create continual improvement. Let Flats or Spikes join your distance running, cross country, or track team and let’s improve together!

How Flats or Spikes Works:
Runners are assigned to a meet or training event. An event is started using our timing system. Flats or Spikes connects all phones together to create a highly accurate timing system. By distributing people along the course or track, anyone can collect runner times by simply tapping in the app to tag each runner. Data is immediately shared and results are available in real-time to see your runners’ continual improvement.

Race and Split Timing:
Race and split timing is why Flats or Spikes was built. Pacing strategies (positive, negative, or even) are key to race performance. We are entirely focused on making timing data collection easy which allows pacing data to be collected more frequently for scientifically-accurate results all visualized beautifully.

Universal Clock Timing + Video:
Multiple race clocks can be set for complex flight race timings. Everyone sees the same clock times. Our proprietary system was designed to be highly accurate for distance running events. Using linked video review, we have built a system that allows timing data to be verifiably accurate.

Advanced Analytics for Everyone:
We focus on split timing analytics. Track split times, deviations, individual splits over time, and total race times. Review pacing analytics and discuss pacing strategies while your runners pace train and understand their performance over time. Create continual improvement together and visualize progressive human performance at all levels. Review training data from long runs, tempo runs, time trials, races run at the same meet over the years. All analytics, including training results, are available in team, group, and individual views.

Year Round Analytics:
In- and off-season training is easily tracked in Flats or Spikes and can be used for longterm analytics.

Access your Data at Any Time:
You always have access to download your data in Flats or Spikes at any time. Our science-based analytics system is an incredible, mobile system to visualize running data; however, you can download your data in a clean format to use or print out.

Team Management:
Flats or Spikes helps manage people for both large and small teams. Quickly organize season schedules from meet locations. Set permissions for all roles on the team: coaches, runners, friends, or parents. Import people to the team using our bulk import from spreadsheet function. Activate and deactivate members as needed.

Team Communication:
Communication between you and your team is simplified. You can rapidly message the team or groups like leaders or parents by text or email.
