Best for: Guided runs + in ear updates
Potentially one of the most popular running apps (for good reason). From playlist suggestions, personal stat boards, and a personal favourite - the motivational audio snippets from professional athletes to spur you on. This is ideal for all levels of runners.
If you’re competitive and looking to push yourself… this app is for you. Check out how far your mates are going, their routes, and join in with global initiatives to really get the most from your steps.
Best for: Those new to running
First thing’s first: this app works. If running 5k daunts you, this gentle guide helps you raise your stamina with the walk / run method of training. By the end of it, you’ll be able to smash your PB.
For those days you’re feeling lazy, unfocused and, realistically, would much prefer to stay on the sofa… Headspace running meditation audios are for you. Short, impactful snippets of guided audio designed to help your mind focus on the road ahead.
Great, simple interface for those looking for a free running app. Favourite feature: you can map out your runs and have an audio guide while you’re on them.
