During my acquaintance with various running applications, I came across quite interesting and non-standard mobile running applications that can turn ordinary running training into an interesting quest or game. Therefore, in this article, I want to pay attention to such running applications and tell a little about them.

Mobile applications for running "Run An Empire", "Zombies, Run!", "IRun From Dogs" and "Runbit" have one interesting difference from other running applications, namely that they allow you to turn training into an interesting virtual quest or game.

Run An Empire

Run An Empire is an exciting strategy that will offer you to bring your virtual kingdom to prosperity with real jogs on the street. If you like not only running but also playing strategy - for example, "Civilization" - you will definitely like the application for runners "Run An Empire". Developers from London have invented a game with the effect of augmented reality, which will turn the area of ​​their training into their own empire.

Zombies, Run

Zombies, Run! Is a masterful mix between a pedometer and a video game designed for runners who want to add a little fun to their workouts. The app includes more than twenty half-hour missions that accompany a story in which you take on the role of ‘runner number five’, one of the survivors of the zombie apocalypse. Your task in this game is to complete all the tasks to complete which all you have to do is escape.

iRun From Dogs

Are you a runner? Do you sometimes have problems maintaining motivation, increasing pace, and even completing jogs? Here's an interesting motivation tool, to put it mildly, a little unexpected. The iRun From Dogs app mimics the sound of angry dogs chasing you. You will need to keep running to escape from them. This program encourages you to move and keep moving. There are several different workouts to choose from, including continuous pursuit training, interval training, and call mode. Each of them is different and allows you to customize the application to suit your needs. By offering these modes, also helps keep the program interesting and challenging.


Runbit is a treasure hunt game that you play while running or walking in the real world. When you launch the app, a map of your area is displayed with stars that you can collect, which makes running more interesting.
