The 'Outrun' app is a social fitness solution that will help to encourage individuals to get active by partaking in weekly challenges against friends to win a cash prize. The app will work to track physical activity and take all the steps users take into consideration when commuting or simply going about their daily routine. A progress list of participants will be provided on the home screen to let users see exactly where they lie in the ranks to encourage them to get out for a walk or run to boost their step count.
The 'Outrun' app comes as one of a growing number of social fitness solutions that seek to connect individuals digitally for healthy competition. While the user with the top step count will take the cash prize jackpot, there are also runner-up reads for those who place second to 10th.
