Best run tracking apps for iPhone: RunKeeper, Map My Run, Runtastic

Run tracking apps for iPhone can help you log all of your miles, attain all of your goals, and much more. Whether you're getting ready to run your first 5K or your third marathon, odds are there's a running app in the App Store to suit your needs.


RunKeeper lets you track not only runs, but pretty much any kind of training you can think of from walking to cycling to strength training and more. You can track your personal records and set goals for yourself, whether it be a weight loss goal, a distance goal, or something else. You can then view your past goals, set future ones, and see which ones you achieved and which ones you didn't.

Map My Run+

Map My Run tracks even more activity types than RunKeeper, including intimacy, and provides many statistics including calories burned, distance, pace, and more. It can also tie in with services such as My Fitness Pal in order to sync nutrition and exercise data back and forth. If you choose to, you can track your nutrition data right within Map My Run instead. You can also tie in several different monitors from Polar, Garmin, and others in settings. You can even set up notifications for when friends complete workouts in case you need an extra push.


Endomondo lets you create your own routes and either keep them for your own use or share them with the Endomondo community. You can also connect with My Fitness Pal in order to share data back and forth, similar to Map My Run. There is a section of Endomondo that offers fitness tests in order to test your fitness level, which is a nice feature for beginning runners. Endomondo also partners with many companies in order to provide sponsored challenges that are constantly changing.


Runtastic can track running, jogging, and walking activity. I've found the charts and information inside Runtastic to be some of the easiest to read. Runtastic also lets you purchase motivational stories inside the app to listen to while you run. They're updated regularly so you always have new ones to pick from.
