RoadRunner_GPS

RoadRunnerGPS is a feature rich app for fitness enthusiasts. The app uses GPS features to provide feedback for joggers and walkers on their time, speed, distance, pace and calories.

Once you have finished your run, you can upload the data to Kanavon’s servers where you can review the data and get a variety of metrics and statistics about your workout.

We’re giving away 25 copies of this app, so just comment and let us know what other fitness apps you have tried for BlackBerry.

There is more information about RoadRunnerGPS on their site, as well as in the App World webstore.

Update: Thanks everyone for participating! The 25 winners have been selected and will receive an email shortly.

    i’ve been using the trial for some time now, it’s actually easy to use, runs in the background so i can do other things with my phone while i run (music, yes even the occasional Inbox glance…), but there are a few things it still needs to do:
    * you can’t see your actual historical runs on your device. this means no showing off to friends unless you use a web browser, and the standard-issue Blackberry Browser doesn’t even render the site well. (Opera Mini anyone?)
    * you can’t even email a run report before quitting the app as a workaround to the above.
    * i’ve noticed that in my area elevation data seems off, but distance seems about right.

    the distance-based chimes during a run really are awesome though.

    I have used gymtecnik, asendo fitness, sports plus and total fitness. Seems like this would be a good one to use as I cycle and run.

    I would absolutely love this application; I have been dying to see an application of this nature and have been looking into getting back to my running after my injury. Please pick me!

    I haven’t tried any GPS enabled fitness software yet, but I have used my hand-held GPS to track my mileage… It sure would be nice to have only one thing to carry!

    I’ve used the Nike+ on my iPod Touch but I find that it loses my runs and freezes my iPod. I refuse to buy and iPhone because it would require me to cancel Verizon and switch to AT&T. Besides, I love my Storm. Because of my troubles I haven’t been tracking and I haven’t been motivated to run. I need a kick start. I’d love to find a good app for my storm. Please email all commentors whether we receive the free App or not because if I don’t get the free app I’m pretty sure I will buy one.

    I’ve tried a few of them. There was this really lame one that was just a pedometer, and it wouldn’t accurately track my speed. It would only do it if I was going over 5.5 MPH. Which is hard to maintain. I hope that this one would be better than any of the other ones I’ve tried.

    I have used the Allsports GPS Platinum program for their free 3 month trial, really liked it but haven’t been able to justify the monthly subscription fee. This app looks interesting to try.

    I use GPSed. Works for my purposes, but the interface is a little clunky. Would be good to try this.

    I tend to use GPSLogger for my runs and walks as it gives me a lot of flexibility although not particurlalry tailored to running. Have also tried allsport which seems fairly reasonable.

    I’m using sportypal, haven’t had any problem yet, i really like the user interface and the simplicity. One button for start, one to finish, one to show you the map, one to show you the stats, it can’t be more simple than this.

    I’ve used GymTechnik some. It’s not a Blackberry application, but I do sneak my wife’s Garmin watch out occasionally.
