  • Great for ALL levels | Minor Improvement Needed


    By LacyLavish
    In the wake of the recent pandemic, I decided to take up running. I had been consistently working out, and treadmill runs were a part of my routine, but only for short intervals focused mostly on inclines, speed or small distances. I knew becoming a true runner would require a different type of approach so I downloaded the app. The app does a great job of being applicable to both people who have never run at all and people who have some sort of routine. That is to say, this app is truly for everyone! After a quick assessment the app was able to determine at which week in the program I should begin and it was right on point. My only complaint is that in order for the prompts to be heard by the runner the app requires that your phone not be on vibrate or silent. This is very distracting as throughout your run your music is constantly being interrupted by alerts from other apps. Sometimes those alerts even cancel prompts from the app as well leaving you to run longer than you should or missing your queue to run again. I tried putting my phone on sleep mode, but that too silences the app prompts. If you guys could address this the app would be perfection!
  • Great App! Does exactly what it was designed to do!


    By Metzmar
    I love this App. Its purpose is to take a beginner with little to no running experience from the couch to a 10K, and it does that beautifully. The design is simple. It's easy to use, very intuitive. You can listen to your own music while using the app. The Apple Watch feature didn't work well, but to be honest I haven't used it on my watch for quite a while. I started with the 5k app last year using it out doors. And the app kept me motivated to reach my goal! Running outdoors in the winter/spring is hit or miss in Colorado. So in addition to maintenance runs, I decided to use the 10K app on my treadmill to keep me motivated and improving. I started at week one on the app but I increase the base incline each week and increase the incline at each run interval. This keeps it challenging and staves off boredom. Hopefully I'll be running a full 10K at an incline of 9 or 10 in time for the B2B. So far, I'm motivated and making steady progress toward the goal! Exactly as it should be!
  • Love this app!


    By Digimadre
    Update: Stopped running for quite a long time and just started back up. This app is the one thing that helps me keep running. I just run until she says to stop. I love it. 2 years ago: I ran the Big Sur half marathon a couple of years ago and then life seemed to go crazy and my running definitely took a back seat. I would try to get in a couple mile run here and there but I could hardly run a 1/4 mile before having to stop and walk. So, at the beginning of this past summer, my 12 yr old and I (54 yrs old) started using the 10k runner app. She can run a 3 min 1/2 mile but distance was hard for her. I guess that that all the incentive I needed to get started again. Just ran 4.58 miles today in five - 10 min intervals. May not make any distance awards but I'm extremely happy with how easy it has been to work my way back up! Tried for 2 yrs to get back into it myself -- definitely would recommend!
  • A great app missing a few key features


    By Huxley Dunsany
    Overall this is a fantastic app - easy to use, extremely helpful, and well designed. However, it has a couple flaws that routinely bug me: - Why isn't there an option to have an audio prompt when you reach your halfway point? It's super frustrating to run too far from home, and then end up walking a considerable distance back. This might not matter if you run on a track, but for those of us who run around the neighborhood or on our lunch breaks at work when total time is the priority, it would be great to know when we reached the halfway point - The Apple Watch integration is sluggish and clunky, end it does not appear to have been updated since Apple started allowing native apps to run on the watch. This means that when you check your Watch for your current stats during a run, it will show in correct and updated information while it's very, very slowly refreshes from the phone. The Apple Watch integration just doesn't work, and needs to be rebuilt as a true native app
  • Have been using it for years


    By Momrunster
    Have gone thru several periods in my life where my run fitness has dropped. I use this app to get back at it. If you’ve never run before this is also a great way to start. This time I am back at it post-pregnancy. Gave 4 stars because sometimes the sound on the app goes down mid run. It doesn’t always happen but can be annoying when you are counting on it to tell you to walk. Again this is a minority of times. Today it happened when I also started a workout on my Apple Watch. I think the watch took over by buzzing my wrist the notifications which is easy to miss mid run. I was able to get sound back by pulling out my phone and fiddling with screen leaving 10K app locked but on display. I would like it if in addition to telling you “you’re halfway there” it also told you this is run in segment 5 to keep you mentally motivated that you are really “almost done”. Thanks for developing this. I know you’ve helped a lot of people.
  • App is amazing


    By Joruli2
    Update: lol, it’s been a while (like 5 years since running) either I forgot how hard the jump from Week 3 run 3 to Week 4 run 1 is or I am just old. Probably both, I am out of shape lol. I just had to slow down my pace. Keep at it everyone. In the end you’ll be glad you did. I’ve used the app a few times to get back into running condition for the military. In case anyone is wondering about what speed to run, run at your own pace of course but the app assumes you will run a 10 minute mile to achieve the 5k and 10K trophies. The final run of 60 minutes for a 10K (6 miles) is a 10 minute mile. If you run faster as I do, you’ll hit a 5k and 10K much quicker. On the 5k pacer app someone complained about bumping fast forward and rewind. Just press the lock button right in the middle of the screen and you won’t bump the FF or RW buttons :-)
  • Paid for this app years ago and can’t use it now


    By tlanderson6
    Several years ago, I outright paid for the 10K Runner app (before it became a subscription). I was always able to utilize the full 10K Runner program. Sometime over the last couple of years, it seems the app was updated and a subscription is now required to utilize the full program. I attempted to “restore purchases” from settings, but to no avail, I cannot have full access to the program. I can only access the first four days. I used to love this app but because I can’t even use it, I can’t help but give it one star. This is incredibly disappointing that I actually paid for this app years ago, and now (on the same Apple ID, the only one I’ve ever had), I can’t use it without paying for a subscription. What happened to grandfathering in folks who bought the app prior to the implementation of a subscription? Other fitness apps have moved to a subscription as well but didn’t make their users who purchased the app from the beginning pay for a subscription to access full features. Seems like the point of purchasing the app has been defeated. Wishing I’d never bought it.
  • Wonderful App!


    By Braison'sMama
    I have been a long distance runner since junior high, but after high school, I didn't keep up with it consistently. This app is awesome for me because it's easing me back into running. The first few runs seem a little easy, but they progress in difficulty quickly enough. I love that it tells me when to run and when to walk. It makes it easier. I used to just run and keep telling myself to push further over and over when I wanted to stop. That made me burn out quicker. I use it 5 days a week. I do a new run every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and Tuesdays and Thursdays I repeat the run from the day before. I feel good and I'm losing the last few pounds from being pregnant. I have zero complaints about this app. I just plug in my headphones, turn on some music and do what my little run trainer lady tells me!
  • Changing my life


    By Jaws4evr
    I used the 5K to run my first 5K to benefit melanoma at my teams celebration this year. We were celebrating my 20 years of fighting (officially in August), my teams 5 year anniversary and my award I was receiving. It was very important that I finished my first 5K and did it this year. With the help of the 5K app I crossed the finish line in less then an hour. The only think I would prefer is mileage expectations as well as time expectations on the app. I didn't always feel like even though I was running the expected time I wasn't getting the mileage that was expected (aka I was running slower then the app anticipated) but it did its job and I was able to cross the finish line. I am now using the 10K version to push further so my next 5K is easier (I hope). With the help of these apps I will now actually go out and exercise instead of sitting on the couch. I highly recommend them and honestly if I can do it anyone can.
  • Great for beginners and marathon runners


    By naturallyhalie
    I love how each run helps you progress at a good pace. I first got this app to train for a 10K and it helped me do just that. I ran my first 10K in about the 60 min goal and I’m by no means a runner. I actually hate running but the 10K was for a good cause so this app helped motivate me and ease me into running. I’m also not a huge gym person so this helped me with a starting point for working out as well. Then I was in an accident and haven’t been able to run or work out so this app is getting me back on track. I typically hate paying for apps but this app was worth it. Honestly, I’m the kind of person who doesn’t even like paying $1 for an app but I’ve had this app since early 2018 and I’ve used it multiple times since so I think I’ve gotten my money’s worth. Get it! You won’t be disappointed.
