About this app

Go for a run with voice navigation guiding you along the way, or take on a race. RunGo is the running app that gives directions.

Looking to find or create and follow a running route? Hands down, the easiest way to stay on track and enjoy your run is through customized, turn-by-turn voice navigation.

Important updates:
* New onboarding messages, to make sure location, battery, and speech settings are on properly
* This will allow RunGo to work when the screen is off: run tracking and voice messages
* Please make sure "Location permission" for the RunGo app is set to "Allow all the time"
* Please make sure "Battery usage" for the RunGo app does not have background restrictions
* Please make sure "Text-to-Speech" is set to "Google Engine"

Please contact if RunGo is not working as you expect.

RunGo is the most popular running app featuring turn-by-turn voice navigation.

Build your own route, or select one of the 750,000 routes or verified routes worldwide, and follow a voice-guided tour, including every time there's a turn or a cool landmark, or an encouraging reminder that you're halfway there.

It's 2023: you're probably beyond trying to memorize every turn, printing out maps, checking your phone’s map every block, or never doing anything new!

You’ll find amazing runs in running cities such as San Francisco, LA, Boston, New York, Chicago, Austin, Vancouver, London, Sydney, Tokyo, and many more. RunGo also tracks your run stats like time, pace, distance, elevation, and estimated finish time. We proudly include no ads in the app, and a paid premium upgrade is available for additional features.

RunGo was recently recognized as one of the best travel apps for your next trip and exploring the world, and how to find great running routes everywhere you travel.

"Great app. I have no sense of direction so being able to create a route and import it into RunGo is perfect for me. It's given me the confidence to run a bit further from home and in other towns when I'm travelling for work. I did have a problem with the app "crashing" after 5 or 6 minutes exactly but this turned out to be a "feature" of my phone, Honor 10 (made by Huawei). There's a battery saving feature that shuts down apps when the user doesn't use them, but they still look open. I applied the fix and RunGo has performed flawlessly since." -App Review by Louise Coleman

Virtual races keep us motivated all year round. Follow courses peppered with custom voice messages as you run, including stories about landmarks and neighbourhoods, motivational points, and race highlights. Submit in-app to the race’s leaderboard for accurate and fair results.

I used the app to allow people to track me while running a marathon. I was able to upload the GPX file for the course via the website. I subscribed for the tracking feature via the website, it didn't work via in-app purchase. I started recording half an hour before the race, paused and sent out the link via socials. I unpaused at the start of the race, and kept my phone in my pocket and it worked. Only downside was I couldn't figure out how to make it display my pace in min/mile vs min/km.

Half the time, the routes don't even load. sometimes they load but indications won't play; both times forcing you to redraw the route as a new one (oh, you can only do it 4 times a month, so this "defect" might be intentional). I can't stand their "offcourse" notification anymore - if you are on the wrong sidewalk, or if their route data is not accurate, they will assume you went wild and stop giving you indications. Uninstalling after years of use.

Pretty terrible. Voice feedback doesn't work properly and is always "off route." It will give voice turns for the first quarter mile, then just stop and won't track the route once the voice feedback stops. Once off route, it doesn't get back on route. There is no place to see only your private runs; they appear as part of the public runs and it is difficult to find yours. Creating runs in the browser doesn't immediately sync with the app; it's better to create runs within the app itself.
