RunFriendly wins award at Sport Tech Hub Demo Day
RunFriendly won one of the two awards at the Sport Tech Hub Demo Day in March 2019. Hosted by PwC and organised by London Sport and its Sport Tech Hub, RunFriendly won the People's Choice Award as voted by the evening's attendees. RunFriendly continues to work with and benefit from the network, skills and experience of the programme and its partners, and will now mentor one or more of the team's in the next cohort. The new RunFriendly t-shirts also made their first public appearance, which will be made available to our first subscribers following our live beta trial.
RunFriendly starts its London beta trial
Ahead of the ‘new year, new me’ resolutions, RunFriendly has started its beta trial with a selection of gyms, hotels, retailers and other spaces in central London.
RunFriendly helps more people run and cycle more often, whatever the weather, by matching runners and cyclists with under-used showers in gyms, hotels, leisure centres and co-working spaces.
The test area spans from Farringdon and Blackfriars to Tower Bridge and Liverpool Street, and will generate insights and learning ahead of a roll-out to other areas of London.
Anyone else who interested in joining the next phase our city trials sign-up now at www.runfriendly.com - whether as beta tester or if you’re a gym or venue with showers. Let us know if you’d like to see RunFriendly in your own city!
How active, or inactive, are we as a nation in the ‘first and last mile’ of our everyday commutes?
RunFriendly, Go-Ahead and University of Leeds have conducted world’s most in-depth study into ‘first and last mile’ of our everyday journeys and commutes. The first-of-its-kind research explores how we can encourage and enable different commuter ‘archetypes’ to have more active and healthy journeys from their front door to their main modes of transport, such as the train station, and then onwards to their work or destination. And then the return journey. The findings will be released in January followed by campaign activities during 2019.
