Over 70,000 runners can't be wrong! Charge Running is the most motivating, encouraging, and social way to run!

Charge hosts LIVE running classes from the comfort of your own neighborhood or treadmill. Each live run brings runners from all over the world together in one class where you can run, chat, and compete on our Live Leaderboard for the #1 spot!

Each Charge class is hosted and DJ’d by a LIVE, certified running coach, who will motivate, encourage, and empower you and others within the class to run your best! You have the choice of joining classes varying in difficulty from light walk-to-runs for beginning runners, to hard tempos for those who are training for their next race. Just throw on your shoes, pop in a pair of headphones, and our amazing coaches will take care of the rest!

Love This. Get it!!

I love this app. It’s kind of like the Peloton app with classes structured for runners both indoors and outdoors, only Charge Running has much better coaching, a decent selection of weekly long runs, and variety of class structures, and a really cool community vibe to it - LOL. I can go for “group” runs almost any time of the day and get live coaching based on my pace/effort/feedback from real people. Love that the leader board keeps me competitive when I’m pushing it, too. Larger runs and races are truly motivating and fun. Verbal cues from the coach throughout the run too (relax your jaw, feel how your feet are kissing the pavement, etc). Mixing up my base miles with different pace zone targets has already helped me improve as a runner and avoid getting injured as I start to ramp up again. Love the music that coaches pick, too! Oh, and chatting with the coach and other runners during breaks or after a run makes it feel like you’re running with friends or teammates. 10/10 I recommend to any runner.l, at any skill level.

Life changing // I hated running before Charge

I can’t say enough good things about this app. It’s like having a personal trainer in your pocket. When you enter a virtual running “class” you get *personalized* and real-time motivation and encouragement about your particular performance. The trainers can see your speed and distance so know right when I slow down or speed up and offer expert coaching. I like that the other runners can’t see my speed as I’m not using the app to compete and more so to make running more enjoyable, and dare I say fun. I used to dread running and now I look forward to it. Using this has replaced my having to go to HIIT classes (Orange Theory, Barry’s Bootcamp, etc) and I get to avoid schlepping to a studio. I’ve also gotten faster and am nearly at my high school varsity field hockey pace which feels great. My only complaint is that I wish they had more runs each day and some longer ones. Overall it’s fantastic and can’t recommend it enough.

I can run!!!!

How many ways can you say the word awesomeness?? From the concept dreamed up by two siblings to the approach, coaches, types of runs, frequency of classes, and the amazing music playlists - everything is awesome! And that’s before I even mention how great it is to be part of a real and live community of Chargers all running together around the world. I am a COVID Runner which means I couldn’t run a mile before COVID hit. Thanks to several of the coaches, I have now completed my first half marathon, and have a second coming up soon. The coaches teach, cheer, and encourage. The other runners create a leaderboard of mild competition that encourages you to push yourself just a little more than you might otherwise. My sister even runs with me every week even though we’re 80 miles apart. Whether you can simply walk a quarter-mile, or know how to run a six minute pace, this app is for you and your friends and family.
