Idea

Running is more popular than ever. We estimate that there are 150M+ runners worldwide realising the numerous physical and mental health benefits. This brought Dom and Ben - two fitness obsessives - together to create RunBuddy. We want to help everyday runners, whether they’re trying to improve their 5k time or training for their first marathon.

Our vision is to make training easy and fun. We aim to provide fully personalised training plans that sync with your favourite fitness devices, a community for like-minded runners to connect, and training advice from nutrition to injury management. We also want to develop a performance tracking feature to measure progress.

We launched in Q1‘21 with a pdf-based proof-of-concept and to date, we’ve helped 900+ paying customers across 25+ countries. We’ve also grown our community with events and challenges.

In Q4‘21 we launched our app on iOS and Android, reaching a global audience. And we have so much further to go. With this investment, we're aiming to grow our development team and build a successful, global running app.

We’re exploring a number of growth routes for our business, from partnering with races, to professional athletes, to companies looking to improve their employee wellness.

We’re delighted to be giving you the opportunity to invest and own a part of RunBuddy, so come join our mission and let's get the world running.
