Runnin’ City by Mile Positioning Solutions, founded by the 2 passionate sportsmen Olivier Lebleu (the runner) and Christophe Minodier (former judo practicer who became an ultra-trailer),
decided to join great alike-thinking minds and continue the creation of Runnin’ City as a duo. The idea came when Olivier, who had the spark of the idea during one of his many business trips. He faced the following problem over and over again, which was to not want to ignore his daily exercise routine and to be able to run without getting lost while wanting to use it to also discover a new city. Runnin’ City works like that, it lets users discover over 150 cities worldwide while running and/or walking by using their offered vocal GPS and audio guide, for anyone to enjoy, not have to look down at their mobile devices to find their way and to move seamlessly through new and exciting places.
How it works:
1) Lace up your running shoes and pop in your headphones.
2) Launch the Runnin'City route of your choice.
3) Start running! The audio GPS instructions will guide you.
4) Listen up: the audio guide will tell you everything you need to know about the city and its monuments, neighbourhoods, parks etc.
5) Take a shower and go impress your friends with your new-found cultural knowledge!
