RunHelper is the simplest way to track your runs, period. Instantly view your total mileage, calories burned, and runs completed. Select your distance and let RunHelper do the rest. You’ll still have to run though.

RunHelper maps your runs, motivates you, and tracks your progress. Know exactly how much road you’ve chewed up and calories you’ve burned so you'll know just how many Holiday cookies to eat (or not to eat). We’ve built-in all the great features that make our apps the best training apps:

Run faster or slow down? See your distance and pace with just a glance on the workout screen. In app GPS tracks your workout while you run outdoors.

Running out and back? No problem. RunHelper will let you know when to turn around and head back.

Good music makes a workout. Don’t let the bad music slow you down. Change tracks or playlists right from the workout screen without interrupting your workout.

Some runs are better than others. Record what the weather was like, how you felt, and where you ran. And don’t forget to add a note. View your runs in either calendar or list view.

A picture is worth a thousand words. See your pace, distance, calories and weight progress on beautiful graphs.

Seeing is believing. See your workout route on a map with mile markers displaying your pace and distance.

Motivate and get motivated. Share your workouts on Facebook and Twitter right from the app.

You worked hard to log all those workouts. Make sure they are safe with automatic cloud backup. But that’s not all! You will also:
- Earn points and unlock achievements
- Get Workout reminders
- Receive Weekly workout summary via email
- See all your workouts from all your Bluefin apps in one place
- See detailed pace and elevation charts

* Subscribe to RunHelper Connect right from the app with in-app-purchase. 30-day free trial included.

Solid, No-Nonesense Run Tracking

I started running using Ease Into 5K, then progressed onto Bridge to 10 and Hal Higdon Half-Marathon Novice 1, also created by Bluefin Software. Since completing those training programs, I've used just about every major and minor name in run tracking apps, trying to find the "Best." I quickly discovered that unless you have a need for features like Heart Rate monitoring and the like, less is often more. This is where RunHelper really shines. Rather than poking through a bunch of features you'll never use, RunHelper allows you to track your running progress, set simple distance goals, and share your progress on Facebook and Twitter. If you're looking for additional features, the full version of RunHelper will do the job while still removing the extra fluff that gets between you and your run.

Best running app

This is by far the best running up out there. It has EVERYTHING (minus its sister app’s (ease into C25K) ability to advance or repeat aim interval) . One of the few apps to let you set goals (distance, time OR calorie - some only available with plus version but worth every penny) as well as set walk/run intervals. It’s the only app that has all these features in one and NO SUBSCRIPTION needed) Plus it plays your music & has voice options to choose from for your prompts & notifications (and the voices don’t sound like creepy automated voices, they sound like real people). Big thank you to Blufin for updating the plus version of the app. You have THE BEST app out there please keep those UPDATES coming!!!! By this app you will not regret it and you will save so much money over the other apps that require subscriptions for all of the same capability.

Was good

I’ve had the Run Helper Plus app for years. Last night it stopped working and I had to uninstall and when I tried to reinstall it tells me the app is no longer available. RunHelper Plus was the absolute best app and I bought it years ago. Please bring it back. I need that app. I use it several times a week.
