Winter doesn’t have to mean treadmill running. With these four apps let you run both a little more fun, safe and challenging.
All of these apps are available on the appstore, for both IOS and Android, and vary in price. New this year are Allone, a larmapp for the runner and Sprinter, the app that helps you find love in the running track.
With winter comes the darkness and to have a larmapp on when you go out in the running track is a wise idea. Allone is a larmapp that allows your friends to follow your run on their own phone.

Allone also has an alarm function that both the sounds aloud, to attract attention, but also announces other app users who are in your area if you need assistance. Free!
