Founded in 2009, Runtastic has rapidly grown into an innovative suite of apps, products and services that track and manage health and fitness data to motivate individuals to get in shape, stay fit and improve overall health and wellness. In October 2013, the Axel Springer AG acquired a 50.1 percent stake in Runtastic GmbH.

With more than 70 million downloads and over 30 million registered users on, Runtastic’s mobile fitness applications sync directly with proprietary hardware to track distance, pace, time, heart rate, calories and route traveled when running, biking or engaging in other exercise activities. Results can then be viewed directly within the app, via Runtastic GPS devices or on where users can view their online training log, get detailed data analysis and compare with others.

Whether you’re beginning your wellness journey or a professional athlete, Runtastic makes getting healthy and staying fit easy and fun.

Runtastic is available on iPhone, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry.

Additional information can be found at, and you can follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn.
