Racefully is the world’s first truly social fitness activity tracking app. Run, walk, cycle, ski or snowboard and track your performance in real-time - on your own or with others, wherever they are around the world. You can count steps, train or race with your friends, even if they’re on the other side of town - or in another country.

Create your own tribe or find tribes to join and collaborate - or compete - to achieve your fitness goals. You can be just as social as you like - schedule activities with friends, share routes for others to try out, and message your buddies with texts and pics to cheer them on.

And, if you want to exercise alone sometimes, you can race yourself or against runs or rides shared by other users any time you like.

• Coach: “If your favorite running mate moved to the other side of the globe, it’s time to get running again”

Achieve your goals
• Set your personal goal for how far, fast, or often you want to exercise. If you share your goals with friends they can encourage you to achieve them.
• Join Tribes with shared goals or interests and achieve your objectives as a team. Collaborating and competing together really helps you stay on track!
• Keep track of achievements as you hit new milestones

Exercise Together:
• Share your routes to social and your friends can not only see them, they can load them in Racefully and then walk, run, ski or ride them - wherever they are. Simple and amazing all at the same time!
• Join tribes with similar goals, interests or causes - or create your own. Brilliant for staying connected with your buddies. Tribes are great for clubs, event organisers and charities, too!
• Have a step-counting conference call with Walk&Talk - boost your creativity and your wellbeing at the same time!

Smart Tracking
• 4 modes
-> Social - set up a private or public activity and walk, run, cycle or ski virtually with up to 7 others, wherever you all are
-> Solo - get out on your own and track your route and performance
-> Ghost - race against your own or others’ recorded runs or rides
-> Steps - track your steps 24/7
• Tracking - Racefully’s smart tracking commentator updates you in real-time on your performance, and our unique equalization feature makes sure it’s a fair comparison
• Auto-pause - when this is on, Racefully will pause and re-start tracking you when you’re out and about and get held up
• Continuous recording for skiing and snowboarding - Racefully splits the session into individual runs at the end
• Listen to your music as usual - Racefully will fade it for updates
• When you finish, view distance, pace, elevation gained/lost, relative effort, and calories burned. Plus check out our gorgeous maps for details of the route and splits

AI Training for runners
• We offer TaOR Ai - the leading adaptive AI run coaching for all levels - just connect your TrainAsOne account!

• Background GPS access is used to enable you to take calls and listen to music during your activity. It is only used while you’re tracking an activity
• Step counting requires motion access
• Taking run selfies requires camera access
• Sharing and saving photos requires Photo Library access
• Inviting people from your contact list requires Contacts access
• Recording a voice tag requires microphone access
• Syncing with Apple Health requires Health access
• Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life

What’s New

Version 3.67

You can now delete your Racefully account from the Settings screen. We don’t want to see you go, but if you decide to leave, all your data will be deleted.

We’ve also fixed a bug preventing some users from joining chats.

For everyone taking part in virtual races, don’t forget Premium Tribes now have a “Race” challenge. The Tribe owner sets the distance or duration of the race, and then each tribe member’s best effort over the challenge period is recorded on the challenge leaderboards. No more sending round screenshots of your effort or manually keeping up with everyone’s time.

If you like Racefully, perhaps your colleagues would too! We offer employers an amazing team-based wellbeing platform to help support their employees’ mental and physical health. Contact us at info@raceful.ly to learn more.

If you have any feedback for us, want to ask a question, or have any issues with the app, please drop us a line at support@raceful.ly - we love making new friends :)

Good, not yet Great.

The interface has to be one of the simplest/ easiest to navigate.
The tracking, network, and accessibility is almost seamless.
Only issue sits with syncing to other apps and never uploading such as Strava, or lack of compatibility such as Fitbit.

Beautifully designed, functional, and a great idea

I love this app. Do yourself a favor and download it. I live in Colorado and most of my fitness buddies live in another state (or country). I love that we can exercise together, while apart - it’s fun and a fresh take on using technology to stay connected. The app itself is beautiful, intuitive (and I’m a millennial with high standards) and even has a lot of features that I haven’t explored yet, like the auto-pause. As a long-term user of Runkeeper, I can say that Racefully has smoothly filled the gap between just sending your runs to friends (afterward) and meaningfully sharing your runs with friends. Take it for a spin. Or a run. :)

This is exactly what I wanted!!

Finally an app where you can Easley race against your own time during a previous run or walk. It tells you exactly how far you are ahead or behind which is really motivating to hear that you can beat your previous record. Keep up the great work! I’m definitely a fan!
