Racefully GPS activity tracker

Racefully GPS activity tracker

Project X Limited

Racefully is the world’s first truly social fitness activity tracking app. Run, walk, cycle, ski or snowboard and track your performance in real-time - on your own or with others, wherever they are around the world. You can count steps, train or race with your friends, even if they’re on the other side of town - or in another country.

Create your own tribe or find tribes to join and collaborate - or compete - to achieve your fitness goals. You can be just as social as you like - schedule activities with friends, share routes for others to try out, and message your buddies with texts and pics to cheer them on.

And, if you want to exercise alone sometimes, you can race yourself or against runs or rides shared by other users any time you like.
