5K Challenge

By Pop Culture Software

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Train for about thirty minutes a day, three days a week. In nine weeks, you'll be ready for your first 5K.

Our developer had already lost 40 pounds via a popular weight loss program, when he found out the program had an award for running your first 5K. With the help of some friends and online resources, he started training. Being a full time iPhone developer, writing a companion app was just too obvious. Thats what sets our app apart. Our developer actually used the app for his training. He went from never being able to even run a mile to doing his first 5K.

Each workout is time or distance based in metric or english, including voice prompts by "Serena".

The best feature of the app is the compatibility with other apps. All the audio prompts will play in the background no matter what other app you are using. Our developer has a jazz radio stream that doesn't play in the background, but 5K Challenge does just nicely.

Share your progress on social media. Follow along with our developer's weight loss blog.

Distance based workouts require GPS. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. GPS only runs during the actual workout, for about 30 minutes.

What's New in Version 1.04

Added a checkmark to show completed workouts and a button on the settings tab to clear completed workout data.

Fixed a bug in time based workouts.

Customer Reviews

Great program!!

Program works great!

Improvement suggestions would be: alternate voices and a time for the 5 minute warm up walk.

Other than that it is awesome my wife and I each have it on our phones and in less than 2 weeks I can already run further and have lost 10 pounds.

5K run

Great app so far. I like the set time intervals and that the app counts down the minutes. I wear headphones when I run, so I have to watch the screen for the countdown.
