About this app

For runners to build and manage personalised 5k to marathon training plans

RunPlan
RunPlan helps you to organise your racing and training calendar. Used as a personal running coach you can choose a personalised marathon training plan or a 5k training plan. If you're getting started try the Couch to 5k plan. Keep your race calendar up to date!

Races
How many weeks until your next race? Add races, time trials or your planned parkrun events to your plan to have an easy place to go and see your list of races and get a countdown to the date. Fill in a target time and we'll show you the pace required to hit that time. Add extra information such as race start time or location as needed. You'll see your next race on the homepage. Select 5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon or alternatively enter your own custom race distance.

Sessions
Your list of running sessions is the main feature of the application. Here we have key details of your runs such as warm-up, the main set, cool-down and of course the date along with the training type and total estimated distance. Estimated distance is used to calculate your total weekly running mileage, including race distances, which is displayed on top of the screen. This should help plan out a sensible weekly load. Save templates to avoid regularly entering the same information.

Plans
Build out your own running plan or get stuck into one of ours. Personalised running training plans are available for all levels of runners. Select from Couch to 5k, Improver's Plan, 5k Training Plan and Marathon Training Plan. Couch to 5k will get you started with a standard running plan that takes you from a mix of jogging and walking, up to 30 minutes of steady running and ready to take on your local parkrun. The improver's training plan builds from 2 runs per week up to 4 runs per week and is tailored to you based on your current 5k pace. There is also a 4 week repeatable training block suitable for all levels for runners who are used to running regularly and want to add some structure to their training. This plan is also good for 10k training, half marathon training or marathon training. For a longer term plan try the marathon training plan which builds up to a target race pace over 16 weeks.

Connections
Connect with other RunPlan users. This allows you to view the full list of races that they intent to run along with details of their next training session. Copy a race from their running training plan into your own plan. This feature enables you to quickly see what your friends have planned, perhaps with a view to joining them in their next training session or race.

The app is good, but could do with some additional features. For example when you set the plan up, then decide you want to run on different days you have to change each run date manually. Also, the mileage versus the times often don't match. For example in a 50 minute session it suggests I should do 9 miles...which would be fine if I was Mo Farah. You also can't see any previous sessions completed, or select different days on the calendar. Love the simplicity though

Great app. Simple, intuitive, focused. The ease of use of the app struck me. I wanted to schedule a training plan, so I just bought a plan and boom, my sessions were all loaded. I wanted to change the date of a session and that was possible too by simply clicking on the session. I like that this app knows what it is: it's a run planner. Exactly what it says on the tin. The interface is also beautiful, fluid and satisfying to use. Hats off to the developer.

I've been using RunPlan for a year and a half now and the results have been phenomenal. My 5k time has dropped by 6 minutes from using the plans and the marathon plan last year set me up for a time I'm very proud of. The UI is really intuitive and all the features are great. Look forward to continuing to use it and shave off a few more minutes!
