About UsRunning Heroes uses data generated by GPS tracking applications to create innovative digital experiences. Founded in March 2014 in France, Running Heroes is the first rewarding platform for runners. The platform rewards runners for their miles ran with exclusive discounts and gifts using data measured by their usual GPS applications (Runtastic, Nike+, Runkeeper, Strava, Garmin, Polar, MapMyRun, Endomondo) based on an algorithm that takes the distance, duration, elevation, speed of their run and their gender, age and progression into account. Subscription is free and always will be.
In just 18 months, Running Heroes became the first running community in France and now has 200,000 members. The Company has partnered with more than 200 brands including Nike, Adidas, New Balance, Asics, Uber, Spotify, Gousto and Jabra.
Having raised 300 000 euros last year, Running Heroes has launched in Australia in May 2015 and in the UK in June 2015. Furthermore, the firm is replicating the concept for cyclists with Cycling Heroes.
