This is a program for runners comfortable running 5km (3.1 miles) at least 3 times per week or runners who have recently completed our Run 5k or Run 10k app.

The total Active Calories burned can be saved to HealthKit after each workout. Sharing this information with HealthKit is optional.
GPS and LOCATION
This app requires an iPhone or iPad with GPS support. During a workout, location data is used to calculate distance and pace, and to record a track of your position on the map. For best results, use this app outside where you can see open sky. Note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Ratings and Reviews
Long Run Crashes
I started using this app 11weeks ago after graduating from the sister-app Couch to 5k app. In general, it is a fine design and the plan has worked well for me. However, I give it such a low rating because it crashes and loses my data during all of my long runs, usually somewhere between mile 5 and 7. I haven't noticed this issue during 3-4mile runs. This wouldn't be so much of an issue except that I run outside over sidewalks and trails, so I cannot keep track of my distance without the GPS. I get frustrated when I expect to hear the mile signal, check my phone, and discover that the app crashed on me and now I have to figure out through other apps how far I have run. The only reason I keep using this app is because the training program itself has worked well for me. Unless these issues are fixed, I will be switching to another training app for my next race.
Don’t waste your money
I found several free apps that do as much or more. Integration with Apple Watch is poor. Will never buy a training app again that doesn’t give me a free preview.
Great for my first half!
I trained for my first half marathon with this app and loved it! I liked that it was distance-based and not time-based, and I really enjoyed checking off the days on the map for each run I completed. The only issue I had was that I only received the audio queues sometimes, and you would never really know when they would work or not. My husband and I used the app at the same time and sometimes he would hear it during the run and I wouldn't, or the other way around. Didn't bother me much though since this app had everything I was looking for.
