What runners think about running.COACH

Christoph Friedli

Thanks to continued training with running.COACH, I was able to clearly improve on distances ranging from 10km to mountain running and marathon in the past couple of years, without risking an injury. Those successes encourage me to aim at new targets time and time again.

Claudio Langner

running.COACH was exactly what I was looking for. A training plan that adapts to my level and my training rhythm. I am thrilled.

Said López

running.COACH has helped me plan my entire season for the year. I love the flexibility with which the training plan is adjusted when an annual goal changes. I am very happy with the way it plans my week, the accuracy of the pace and heart rates, and the ease of use of the app. I find the dashboard very accurate and the stats help me keep a clear track week after week. This year my goal is to reach 800 ITRA points at three mountain ultras in Colombia, and I hope to do it with the help of running.COACH.
