Yes.Fit Helps People Race Around the World Via Google Street View

Thanks to Yes.Fit, signing up to run a race in the real world is not the only way that a runner can keep themselves motivated and accountable for their personal goals.

Yes.Fit offers "virtual races" that people may opt into running, including whimsical ones like Pac-Man in Tokyo or a journey through more than 20 miles of the Grand Canyon. Rather than having their feet hit the ground in either of these real-world destinations, runners are able to complete these courses by following Google Street Views with real camera footage.

The immersive running courses offered through Yes.Fit help to add an extra dimension to stationary treadmill runs, making every step feel more like a race to the finish line rather than an endless cycle of putting one foot in front of the other.
