Great potential, falls short


I was really excited to try this app since I thrive on competition. Unfortunately, the notifications are so sparse as to be useless. In a four mile race I received rank notifications about once a mile - not nearly enough. I went from fourth place to first but never heard when I was third or second. And distance notifications at the mile mark. I would prefer this to be every half mile or even better, make it configurable. Only on the last half mile do the notifications occur most frequently. Also, at the end of the race you cannot see who the other runners were or their times. If you're looking to incent runners this is the type of information that is needed. Otherwise this is just vague and abstract.

There's also no notifications for last mile pace and average pace. Would be nice to have this so I don't have to turn on another app like Runtastic to provide that info.

If these changes were made this would be a truly awesome app.

Best running app out there!


This is the best running app out there. I've used other running apps before and they've been fine but this one takes it to another level. All runners regardless of level will have some days where they struggle to push themselves and need a boost to help them power through a difficult run. That's where this app excels. The unique concept of runners competing in virtual heats is extremely motivating. I've already had a couple runs where I was feeling tired and if I were on any other app I would have slowed down the pace. On Heat though, I know that I'm competing against other runners and it drives me to maintain my pace until I get my second wind. I'm running the best times of my life now. If you're looking to step your running game up and stay highly motivated, I highly recommend using this app!

Strongly recommended


Losing weight and getting fit is one of the most popular goals people have these days. With this app, I feel like I can really set goals and push myself to the next level. I highly recommend this to anyone who's looking to challenge themselves. I'm a beginner runner and have never felt so motivated :) Love what you guys have going on here. Thank you for helping me stay on my feet! Training for my first 5k has never felt so good!
