Reviews


"WalkJogRun helped me discover a new route in my neighborhood that had me sightseeing (and dodging crowds) along Broadway. It also brought me back to another route I haven't run in years."
Lauren Goode
"Three Running Apps to Shake Up Your Routine" on AllThingsD.com


"There are many apps that track where and how much you run, but not many to help you discover new places to run. Luckily, there's the WalkJogRun app, which gives you the ability to navigate through over 500,000 user-submitted map-based running trails."
Sang Tang
The Unofficial Apple Weblog



"Looking for a good route to run while on vacation? Or a new one near home? This $2.99 app taps a library of over 400,000 user-created routes. A newly added city-search feature lets you plan ahead, and you can create your own routes on the WalkJogRun site."

Why are there no routes at my location?

We'd love to say every square mile of the earth has a running route but as it stands we have over 1.6 million routes around the world. If you are somewhere without routes you can visit WalkJogRun.net next time you are at a computer and map out a route in the area.

How are calories calculated?

Our version is based on a mathematical formula to get calories burned based on your weight and the distance you covered. Speed isn't taken into consideration because the difference between a 190lb person walking a mile and that same person running the distance is extremely insignificant. Speed only plays a bigger role at the faster end of the scale e.g. about 6 minutes per mile when wind can play a bigger role. We also don't include "after burn" calories in our calculations so while it is a known fact that after running your body burns calories at a higher rate for a period after exercise, very little information is available on how to characterize the difference, let alone put it in a formula.

All that said, to use our calorie counter correctly you need to ensure you are using your own weight and not the default for the distance. For example, if you never entered your own weight in pounds, the calories burned for the route you pick is based on a 190lb weight. To change this you can either click the calories row on the details screen of any route or go to the Settings app on your iPhone and scroll down to WalkJogRun where you'll see a listing for your weight.
