Running Track


Running Track is built by me, Neil Macy.

I've been a runner for over a decade. I've ran a few half marathons as well as countless 5ks in that time, and I wanted a new challenge, something bigger. I decided to set myself the goal of running 500 miles in 365 days.

I don't use a workout tracking service like Strava or Runkeeper. I did for quite a few years, but for the last while I've tracked my runs on my Apple Watch using the built-in Workouts app. I don't like how most running apps focus on being social networks, stores for running brands, and/or advertising platforms. I just like to record my runs, and watch myself progress over time.

For my 500 mile challenge, I initially built a spreadsheet that would tally up how far I'd ran so far this year. But I kept adding more stats, like my average distance per month, or how far I need to go this week to keep on track. Between wanting a better way to view these data points, and being fed up with the tedium of entering each run manually, I decided to build an app that automatically read the data that was already in Apple Health.

And so, Running Track was born.

Running Track is a simple app, designed to help me (and hopefully you) to track your progress toward your running goals. It's got no social network, no advertising, and it doesn't collect any personal data. It simply shows what you've already done, presented in a way that helps you to achieve your goals.

I hope you like it.

Happy running!
