Run the World helps you set a goal and keep track of your progress with each run. You can challenge yourself to run to cities near you or you can create other challenges like running from San Francisco to Los Angeles or from Houston to Dallas for example. Or challenge your friends to a run to a nearby city and use them as motivation to exercise!
The app uses your phone’s GPS to track your runs and then count those miles towards your challenge goal. The app also lets you type in your runs that you do indoors so you use those miles to help achieve you achieve your goal.
Run the World makes it easy to share your challenge with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, or with email. Your friends can keep track of your progress and encourage you to meet your goals. Better yet, they can download the app and set their own fitness goals too.
If you want to accomplish your goal by a certain date the app will also help you create a plan to achieve this goal. Just enter the number of days per week you’d like to run and your target date and Run the World will tell you how far to run each day.

Love this app!
I love Run the World. Six friends and I are currently running from Austin to San Antonio. We live all over the country, so it's a great way to keep in touch. I love that I can add missing runs (uses too much data to keep on while running). I would like to receive a notification when my friends in a competition with me go for a run, and when someone writes something in chat. Other than that, love it!
Run the world has made running more fun because who doesn't like a little friendly competition? You could challenge me to a root canal competition and I'm pretty sure I'd end up mopping the floor with you, and this app plays on my competitiveness!
Best running app
Love this app to track my own runs and see to what my friends are running. Keeps me motivated to keep running and "beat" my friends to the finish destination.
