Racefully - solo, ghost & social GPS run tracking

Racefully - solo, ghost & social GPS run tracking

Project X Limited

Racefully is the most versatile GPS run tracking app on the planet, and we think our amazing global community of runners is the friendliest, too!

EXPERIENCE
Of course, if all you want is ‘me’ time, you can run alone and track your performance with Racefully, just like all the other apps. But Racefully is the world’s first truly social running app so we’d be letting you down if we didn’t give you some pretty special extra features. Once you’ve tried them out, we’re confident you’ll be hooked.

Because. We. Let. You. Do. So. Much. MORE.

Want to challenge yourself by running against your own ghost - or your friends’ ghosts? You got it. Racefully does ghost-running. Brilliantly.

Or maybe race virtually - in real time - with friends or other Racefully users, wherever they are? Just start a live run in the app and off you go! Racefully tells you how you’re doing all the way. Who knew you could run socially with friends all over the planet? Well, until Racefully came along, you couldn’t - but now you can!

Perhaps you get your kicks from being part of a team, too, going for a bigger goal, and supporting each other along the way? Well, we’ve got that covered as well! Just set up a tribe in Racefully and invite whoever you want to join you. Or join any of our existing tribes that take your fancy. With Racefully, you can create a tribe for nearly anything or anyone you want.

AWARDS & RECOGNITION
• Runner’s World Top 5 running app (Feb 2017)
• Evening Standard Top 5 London Marathon app (April 2017)
• London Sport Innovation 2016 Award winner

FEATURES

• Solo - yes, it’s OK to run on your own. Even we do it sometimes
• Ghost - run against yourself or your friends’ runs, whenever you like: Racefully tells you how you’re doing all the way
• Live - run virtually with up to 7 friends or other Racefully users, wherever you are, and whenever you want! Racefully’s smart run commentator lets everyone know how they’re doing
• Get pace, time, and distance updates as you run
• Listen to your music as usual - Racefully will fade it when it has updates for you
• When you finish, view distance, pace, elevation gained/lost, relative effort, and calories burned. Plus check out our gorgeous maps for details of the route and splits
• Share your runs to social (only if you want) and your friends can not only see your awesome runs, but they can also load them in Racefully and then run against them. Simple and amazing all at the same time!
• By connecting a free Running Heroes account you can earn rewards every time you run

Run Together:
• Invite your running friends and communities to join you in the app
• Join tribes of runners with similar goals, interests or causes - or create your own. Brilliant for staying connected with your running buddies. Tribes are great for clubs, event organisers and charities, too!
• Tribe leaderboards let you keep track of how everyone in your tribes are doing
• Stay connected using in-app live messaging
• Organize runs with friends ahead of time with the run scheduler
• Pit yourself against our ‘Run Bots’ who run different distances and paces regularly 24/7, just for your enjoyment

• Build up achievements as you hit new milestones
• Join a tribe of similar runners and achieve your goals as a team
• Sync your health data and workouts with the Apple Health App
