Get Running (Couch to 5K)


Get fit and feel fantastic. Get Running with a great “Couch to 5K” beginner's running app!

With three enjoyable workouts a week, in nine weeks you’ll be jogging continuously for half an hour, even if getting off the couch is a struggle today.

Get Running breaks through the “beginning barrier” with the popular “C25K” beginner’s running plan. With each new week, Get Running’s human coach, Claire, gradually builds up your pace until you’re running for a whole half-hour.

Get Running:

✔ Coaches with a human voice – with hundreds of studio-recorded audio prompts.
✔ Supports and encourages you – talk with fellow running rookies on the Get Running forum.
✔ Helps you plan – rest days help you recover, and Get Running knows the best day for your next run.
✔ Displays your next move – the unique Run Clock, customised for each workout, gives complete visibility and understanding.
✔ Plays nicely with other apps, including your built-in music player, or apps like Spotify and Rdio.
✔ Runs in the background, and will keep on going with your phone locked.

Get Running also:

✔ Publishes your success – send updates to Twitter or Facebook (built-in), and have your friends remind you when the next run is due!
✔ Fits your schedule – just three workouts a week of 20 to 30 minutes.

Great app I had never ran before and I'm so glad I chose this app to help me try. I am now on week 9 and running for 30 minutes non stop and really enjoying it. A big thanks to the makers of this very helpful app.

My favourite running app Mum is now running with me, the only app gentle enough for her and the first time she has in 40 years. She thought she'd never run again so thank you!
