Apps for running are plentiful, but none gives such comprehensive details for each race. The Ultimate Running Races app allows you to plan your running year – from ultra running events, to sociable city runs – keep track of your times, and share your successes with your friends.

Compiled by world champion mountain runner Angela Mudge, along with contributions from some of the world’s leading runners including Kilian Jornet, Mara Yamauchi, Ryan Sandes and Jonathan Wyatt, the Ultimate Running Races app is destined to become one of the best running apps around.

Key features of the Ultimate Running Races app:

•Comprehensive list of 500 running races – including extreme running events - from 100 countries worldwide
•Search running races by month, country, distance, A-Z, and type
•Tick the races you have run, record your time and share via Facebook, Twitter or email
•Direct links to official race websites
•Key statistics for every race including distance, elevation and course record
•Location map and full race route where available
•Photographs that capture the spirit of each event

Race categories used in the Ultimate Running Races app:

• Cross country – experience the mud and the drama of the English cross country championships
• Mountain – run to the top of Mount Olympus in Greece
• Multi-terrain – get sweaty in Brazil completing the Jungle marathon
• Road – join thousands of others running marathons through the world’s greatest cities
• Snow – run a marathon to the North Pole
• Stage – compete as part of a team in the famous Ekiden relays in Japan

• Track – compete against Britain’s best in the famous British Milers Club races

Customer Reviews

Great…an update would make it even better :)

This is a really great App. Please can you consider an update, there are so many races from the International Calendar not included. I gave it 4 stars as it's great…just a little dated.
