Running App Launched by Karrimor

Karrimor the major British outdoor brand, has announced the much anticipated launch of the Karrimor Elite. This is the first ever mobile app from the outdoor pusuits company. The new app is available absolutely FREE and is currently available for both Android and iPhone platforms. The concept will enable both runners and walkers to not only plan, but also map and as well as record their routes and performance. They can also rate as well as review both new and existing routes; set themselves targets, and invite friends to join them on activities. The new apps can be downloaded from the respective app stores:

Karrimor Elite also provides runners and walkers with the opportunity to listen to music en-route via an internal music player as well as the ability to take and record photos and link them to particular routes.

Once a run or walk has been completed users can save the route, share it with friends and compile their performance stats – to compare with their own additional attempts as well as those of friends. Best performances for every route are recorded on a leaderboard. The app also lists any routes that are in your vicinity and even recommends others.

Users of the app can also set themselves personal challenges in terms of calories consumed, distance travelled and time taken attributable to either selected routes or a variety of time periods (daily, monthly, weekly). If you are worried about the weather on your route – no problem as Karrimor Elite also has a weather forecast function built in.

For those who just want to get running or walking straight away there is a Quick Start facility and the map view function helps you keep track of where and how far you have travelled as well as provide you with an opportunity to journey plan whilst you are on your way.
