Runnin’City by Mile Positioning Solutions, was created by Olivier Lebleu and Christophe Minodier, 2 passionate sportsmen, and of course, runners.
They had their simple but genius idea during one of their many business trips.
Runnin’City is an award-winning smartphone app that allows its users to visit hundreds of cities around the world, on the 5 continents, while running or walking. Runnin’City guides the user through the city with its vocal GPS and comments every point of interest as the user runs past. It features real-time pollution and allergies levels on the way, touristic tours, training tours, challenges and rewards.
Runnin’City’s mission is to give its users a reason to run.
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!
