Run 5k gets you into shape using our 3-days-a-week beginner run/walk program. In 8 weeks, you'll be able to run 5 km or 3.1 miles without stopping.

Track your distance and pace with GPS when you're running outside, or turn off GPS when you're doing your workouts on a treadmill.

Includes built-in reminders to stretch before and after your workouts. Check out the complete warmup and cooldown stretch program, including dynamic moves to warm up your muscles and static cooldown stretches.

Measure your heart rate during your workout using the built-in heart rate meter. Run 5k also supports all standard Bluetooth Smart heart rate monitors. Our online ❤ Heart Rate Calculator will help you find your target heart rate and pace for your workouts.

Use your own playlists for music or play podcasts in the background to keep you motivated during your workout. Control your music from within the app using a built-in Music control tab.

Voice prompts or beeps tell you when to switch between walking and jogging, even if you have music in the background or if you switch to another app.

Run 5k will keep going with music in the background even if you turn off your screen with the power/lock button at the top of the device.

Share your progress on Twitter and/or Facebook.

I just wanted to let you know that your app has helped change my life. Your app allowed me to become a runner without hurting myself. I now run 5 to 10k every other day. I have tried them all, I recommend yours to everyone I know. Thanks!

Easy to understand and very user friendly, this program is great for beginners. You see your improvement without feeling like you can't keep up. Just the right level and progress for me! And it's compatible with Nike+ too!

This is a great app. I thought it would be impossible to run 5 minutes let alone for 30, this week by week programme builds you up and you surprise yourself at what you achieve. Thanks so much.
