RUN CONNECT

Run Connect is a running app that allows runners to race in realtime with participants from anywhere in the world. The objective was to create a concept that would appeal to competitive runners, which would be used as a platform for training and live runs with a reward based system.

Role: UX/UI

REAL TIME RUNS WITH LIVE LEADERBOARDS

Participants would be placed in tiers based on their rank and running history. Runners would receive points and rewards for every live run they complete. The better and more frequently they run the higher up they will rank.

CHALLENGES BASED ON YOUR EXCERCISE TYPE

Runs are scored on challenge type. Participants have the option to select from distance or time based runs, being scored against endurance as well as intival speed.

OPPONENT MATCHING BASED ON RANK

Tiers ensure runners are matched based on their skill level ensuring evenly matched runs. Tier based matching ensure runners are competing within their fitness level and not putting themselves at risk of potential injury.

LIVE RUNS

Runners can pick their opponent before each challenge, or even choose to race a previous opponent. The live run screen shows the current race stats including interval time, distance and heart rate. Audio feedback would be used to relay opponent status and race progression.

IDENTITY

The Run Connect logo was designed to visually depict the purpose of the app. The slightly angled stroke of the ‘R’ mimic’s the running angle of a runners foot, whilst the offset triangles on the ‘C’ symbolises way points.
