If you’re a runner, there’s a good chance you’re familiar with Runkeeper. This mobile app helps you track workouts, set goals, follow a running plan, stay motivated, and see your progress in an easy-to-use interface. It is one of the most popular personal fitness programs out there, and today, we have announced a collaboration to help bring music to where you run.
For many runners, you wouldn’t even think about hitting the road or trails without bringing your favorite music with you. Running is all about finding your rhythm and settling into a groove, and for many, listening to music is key. Music helps keep your mind off achy joints, shortness of breath and overall fatigue.
Even Runkeeper realizes that music and running go hand in hand. In fact, over the last 90 days, more than 65 percent of Runkeeper users listened to music while tracking their activity!
Runkeeper and Jaybird are committed to providing a custom running and listening experience to help take each of your future workouts to the next level. Whether training for a marathon, your first 5K, or just getting in shape, our collective goal is to help power your run.
Jaybird is offering several opportunities to Runkeeper users, including the Jaybird X3 Challenge, which more than 125,000 Runkeeper users have already stepped up to complete. Now through June 12, users can join the X3 Challenge and track five activities within the app. Those who complete the challenge receive $20 off the Jaybird X3 Wireless Headphones.
Jaybird and Runkeeper are also collaborating on regular Music Monday content and shakeout runs in locations across the U.S. throughout 2017.
Download the Runkeeper app and start pairing your runs with your favorite set of Jaybird earbuds.
Once you put a few runs under your belt, let us know in the comments what new challenges you’d like to see added that combine your love of running with the power of music. We’d also love to know what songs get you going on your runs!
