WalkJogRun GPS Running Routes: The Most Accurate iPhone GPS App for Runners.

Available on the App Store

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 6.0 or later.

Find Routes

WalkJogRun is the premier app for finding nearby routes. Select from our database of over 2 million user-contributed routes. Filter by distance or time; view as a list or see them on a map. Just tap a pin to see the route details and you're off and running!

Popular Routes

Traveling out of town and looking for a safe place to run or just want some inspiration in your hometown? We've aggregated public GPS sessions logged on the site to show all the running route hotspots around the world. The purple lines on the map show you where other people run - the darker the line, the more popular the area.

Create Routes

The first app to let you “draw” your routes directly on the map! Just tap and hold (then release) to drop pins and we’ll connect the dots. You also get a neat little zoom view to help improve your accuracy (since you can’t see through your finger).

Route Elevation

Every route features beautiful elevation charts to show you gain and losses throughout the route. The route elevation will automatically be calculated on GPS tracked runs. Elevation profiles help you to determine how hard or easy a particular route may be, or why a particular leg of your run may have been faster (downhill) or slower (uphill).


Pace Coaching

Sometimes we need a little push to go faster; sometimes we run too fast when we should be taking it easy. Pick a goal pace for a workout or race and we'll tell you when to speed up and when to slow down to reach your goal for the workout.

GPS Tracking

The most accurate GPS tracking of any iPhone app we’ve tested - WalkJogRun is accurate to within 1/10th of a mile over a 10 mile run. Just get up and go, or choose a route first and the GPS will track you (in red) over the route (in blue).

Training Session Data

Every workout you track is saved to your training diary allowing you to inspect every twist and turn of your route, review lap data and replay your finest moments (and the ones that weren't).

Share Training Sessions

Brag about your FINISH TIME to 1,834 of your closest friends on Facebook, Twitter or SMS...

...Or just email your mum.


Every day, month and year tracked in one place

Create a free account (in the app or on our site, WalkJogRun.net) and track your progress with our state of the art training diaries. You are in complete control of your data (we never delete it unless you choose to), so you can look back at your sessions years from now to see how you’ve improved. Add workouts right to your diary to see how you’re keeping up with your training plan or to simply see how far you ran this week. The diary supports all kinds of workouts from stroller jogs to hikes, so you can track all your workouts in one place.

31 Free Training Plans

Whether you’re a beginning, intermediate, or advanced runner who is looking to train for a 5k, 10k, half marathon, or marathon, we have a plan for you. We've even got some great dog training plans for those of you looking to get fit with your dog.

Select a training plan to fit your goals and your experience and get daily notifications to tell you how far and how fast to walk, jog or run.

So what are you waiting for?

Great running app ★★★★★

by Neildeboy (United Kingdom) - Version 4.4.0 - Jun 06, 2014

Decided to start running 8 weeks ago, and chose this app to help me. Worked great since day 1. Easy to use, helped me find loads of routes nearby shown on map with hills etc. You can track progress against route as you run, so you won't get lost or even worse run too far! Stores your activity so you can check progress weekly. Also helped me find routes when away from home on hols, great to know you can keep routine going even if away. Heart rate monitoring was added a few weeks ago, and works great with my polar h7 Bluetooth monitor. Finally loads of interesting articles on running to learn from, and lots of graphs available on website such as pace, heart rate etc over time. Would strongly recommend.

I love this ★★★★★

by milpool1980 (United Kingdom) - Version 4.4.0 - Jun 06, 2014

Great app, I would be lost without it, and the team are so helpful if you have any queries. Great!!!!

Worth the $5 especially if you are a site member ★★★★★

by Lemons415 (United States) - Version 4.4.0 - Jun 05, 2014

I'm a member of the site, and I love having my routes at my fingertips instead of having to log on to my computer when I can't remember a certain route. I'm excited to try some other people's routes when I travel, and I might switch up my training routine and try one of the Coach Jenny plans. Again, it is nice to have the app and not worry about having to boot up my laptop to enjoy my walkjogrun perks. Nice job with the functionality; I think it's easy to use and intuitive. I anxiously await any updates!

Great App ★★★★★

by Bellaashtyn (United States) - Version 4.4.0 - Jun 05, 2014

I love this app!

Easy and accurate ★★★★★

by Travel muppet (United Kingdom) - Version 4.4.0 - Jun 03, 2014

Dead easy to use, especially on an Ipad, who ever wrote the bad review needs to sort out their issues. I use it all over Europe and I've found the maps are good and distances are accurate. Great app

Constantly crashing ★★

by Jade_buddha (Canada) - Version 4.4.0 - Jun 01, 2014

When i first downloaded this app about a year ago it was great. Now for some reason everytime i try to edit a route it crashes. If i set a route to be private it doesnt save and ends up being public. If i try and edit it, crash. Im sooo dissapointed in how bad this app has gotten, i paid like $5.00 for a crash app.

From the WJR Team: Wish the reviewer had reached out for help instead of just writing a bad review. Every day around 25% of all app users are using this feature and no reported issues bar this.

Love it ★★★★

by Tyryytrcfffgdfgcfghd (United States) - Version 4.4.0 - May 27, 2014

Great app for all types of runner ★★★★★

by Nutum86 (United Kingdom) - Version 4.4.0 - May 26, 2014

Easy to use, lots of local ideas and the history tracking gives you incentives to improve

Awesome App ★★★★★

by theheils (United States) - Version 4.4.0 - May 25, 2014

Love this App! So easy to set-up your own running routes and track your training. GPS tracking is excellent and the blog columns are informative too!

Version History

4.4.0 released Apr 30, 2014

Average rating: ★★★★ ¼ from 31 reviews
Thanks for using the app! Since our last update was released over 207,000 miles have been logged with the GPS and members finished 141 races. We've fixed every bug that has been reported and added some great new features!

* Pace coaching. Pick a goal pace for a workout or race and we'll tell you when to speed up and when to slow down to get to your goal.
* Popular routes. We've aggregated public GPS sessions to show all the running route hotspots around the world.
* Better training plan management. We've made it easier for you to remove old training programs to make sure you can stay focused on your current goal.
* GPS tips. If you're having trouble getting a signal at the start of a workout we'll show a tip bubble with suggestions to get you going.
* Recently viewed route lists. If you're like me you're a creature of habit so the list of routes and distances you look at regularly are now bookmarked for easier access online and offline.
* Unsaved session indicator. If you've ever got back from a run outside your house you've seen our message that we're temporarily unable to send your workout to the server due to weak or absent internet. We've always saved the workouts but we get a lot of feedback that you don't know where to find them! We've added an "unsaved session" badge to the create routes tab to show you when there are workouts that need to be sent to the server. You'll be able to select each workout and resubmit it from inside your house, office or gym when the internet signal or wifi is stronger.

Happy running and let us know if you've got any feedback for any of the new features at walkjogrun.feedback@walkjogrun.net

Thanks and happy spring running season!

The WalkJogRun team.

Thanks for using the app! We've had a flurry of updates lately as we try to nail down and fix any pesky bugs you're experiencing.

This release fixes a bug where we were only getting partial crash logs when the app crashes, making it hard for us to find and fix the remaining bugs! If you have any trouble with the app don't forget to email us at walkjogrun.feedback@walkjogrun.net

4.2.3.96 released May 14, 2013

Average rating: ★★★★ ¼ from 81 reviews
Fixed an important bug with GPS accuracy not showing up before you start the GPS tracker, leading to reduced accuracy when tracking workouts.

Last month we brought you audio cues, this month we've added support for heart rate monitors so you never miss a beat! Get heart rate feedback every lap to keep you in the correct training zone.

Supported heart rate devices:
* Bluetooth Low Energy / Smart Heart rate monitors best for battery life.
* ANT+ compatible heart rate monitors via the Wahoo Key accessory.

Audio cues help keep you moving!

We've added audio cues so you don't have to keep checking your phone.* The app will speak your current lap, your lap distance, and your pace. No headphones? No problem. The app will also show text alerts on the lock screen so you can give it a quick glance and keep going. Everything is configurable, including the ability to turn off audio cues.

Sport specific training diaries! You can now see your last 30 workouts for each sport or workout type you do.

We've fixed a bug when trying to log a session without logging in and also a crash when trying to view nearby routes in an area with no routes nearby.

*Note - audio will only work when headphones are plugged in (no blasting your progress through the speakers).

4.2.0.93 released Feb 19, 2013

Average rating: ★★★★ from 48 reviews
Thanks for continuing to support WalkJogRun! We're just a two man team so every review and download of the app means a lot to us. Use the About screen link to contact the developers when you have questions - we try to respond within 24 hours.

In this build we've improved the speed of the app for route finding, especially for folks in London where we have over 40,000 routes! Should be much faster now thanks to Dan Simpson who reported how sluggish it felt in London.

Lastly, we've fixed the bug when showing lap alerts when working in kilometers so now it correctly alerts you for every 1 km instead of the bizarre 0.63km before ;-)

Thanks again,
Adam and Jeff
