Find your perfect running partner today!

​​Let’s face it, running alone can really suck. Whether you’re trying to get back in shape, impress the office by doing a marathon or are a seasoned runner with many an ultra under your belt, you’ve definitely felt the pull of the sofa, or looked out the window at a cold, wet and dark world only to decide your goals can wait for tomorrow.

Well, not anymore. BuddyUp helps you find, like and match with your perfect running partner near you so you can start knocking down goals together. Use BuddyUp and make running alone a thing of the past!


Sign up and create your profile. Sync up your fitness data and show other runners who you are by uploading photos and answering icebreaker questions.

See runners near you. Find and like people you want to run with and don’t worry, we’ll only show you profiles we think are a good fitness match.

Match time! When they like you back, it’s over to you. See if you get along and then strap on your running shoes and hit the road.

It takes a village. Some runs are fast and fitness-focused while others are slower and just about getting a sweat on. Find different running partners as your goals evolve.


Strava users will be able to upload their running data to make matchmaking even more accurate.

Connect with the community. Use the MyArea Chat to make and comment on posts from other runners in your area.

I’ve met new Buddies!

Love this app!! I have not only met new local runners in person but I now have many more buddies within the online running community via the chat page feature. For a woman especially I like the way you can pick and choose who you want to be in contact with to feel safe and secure when you venture out. More London based at the moment but truly hope that this app grows on popularity so that others further afield can benefit too 😁 Also loving the regular updates.. keep them coming

Thanks so much for your kind words! We're a very small team and we love hearing that we're reaching and helping runners like ourselves! If you ever think of anything we can do to improve the app, we'd love to hear about it!

Great idea - just what I need!

The app is a fantastic idea, and the tag line of “match meet motivate” is exactly what I need when running!

No issues signing up, and the process was smooth for me (used email took less than 5 mins). I really love the look and feel of the app and how intuitive It is from a user perspective.

Looking forward to seeing what comes in the future!

Bloody love it

This is perfect for me as I’m a keen runner who can’t be bothered with the commitment of joining a running club, but would equally love a pal to pace the local park with.

I grew bored of strava as it's basically everyone humble bragging about inflated 5k times.

Then I stumbled on this app and i bloody love it. It’s actually helped me find like–minded people with whom I can go for a run. And it will only get better as more and more people join.

Love it :) This is exactly one of the reasons why we built the app in the first place! For us, it's all about finding fellow runners who know what recovery pace means haha! If you want to help us grow even more quickly, feel free to spread the word!
