Happy new year everyone. To kick start 2014, we're launching a new section on the site, RunHub - http://runhub.runnersworld.co.uk/
We had a soft launch yesterday and some of you have already started using it which is fantastic, but if you haven't seen it then head on over and take a look.
In RunHub you can log runs, analyse your data, set up and join groups, join training plans (coming very soon), enter virtual races and challenges, win prizes and much more.
Here's an introduction article that explains getting started - http://runhub.runnersworld.co.uk/welcome-to-runhub
That's about it for now, we'll be launching and promoting it fully next week but just wanted to give you guys on the forums a heads up first.
If it can do the runs for me, I'm in!
Does look interesting on an initial and cursory glance. I already use Garmin Connect and keep a log on my PC in case GC disappears so I'll be looking for reasons to log my runs in yet another place. But it looks okay from what I've seen.
Looks ok, not as complicated as Fetch has become.
Muttley I am same but just changed my GC account so using it to keep another record of my runs - just in case .....
Looks good to me
Looks promising. Seems pretty similar to the spreadsheet I'm currently using.
Would be nice if you could enter which shoes you ran in and have it track how many miles you've run in each pair. Also if you could export your data (e.g. to .csv or xml), although cutting and pasting sort of works.
One more thing. How come the January Challenge started on the 2nd? I'm sure I wasn't the only one out running on New Year's Day.
Thanks for the feedback.
Tom77, I'll look into this, would be good to have these developments. We started on the 2nd as that's when everyone was back in the office, didn't want it going live with no one about.
Ben RW whay have you done this when Fetcheveryone is such a successful site not a criticism just curious
Tom77, further to that, just made some changes and you can now add shoes.
In the grey nav bar at the top of the screen, click on the drop down menu and go to settings. On the settings page you'll see an equipment tab. If you click on that you'll see an add equipment tab.
Will probably need to make that more obvious, but it's there!
goldbettle, it's a good question. Fetch is a great site, we work with them and we saw how successful and useful this sort of area of the site coud be and wanted to be able to provide our users with a similar service.
By Strava! What a great idea! Why has no one thought of this before!
SideBurn, you're right, not a new idea, but one that we'd like to put our own spin on and try to improve upon, especially for runners.
I've got many years of running information on Fetch, and was wondering whether this could be transferred to the new Run Hub. If not, I'm afraid there doesn't seem much point in switching. I will, of course give it a try, and run my training, racing etc. in parallel for a while, before making a final decision.
It is a great concept; I just do not understand why more people do not do it. Strava seems much more popular with cyclists for reasons I do not understand. The main criticism being 'segments' in dangerous places.
I am thinking that this would be a problem for runners when a 'segment' crosses a road, encouraging people to take chances that they would not otherwise take when crossing the road to maintain their time. I like to think I am immune, but when I am in 'course record' mode My judgement can become impaired
Hopefully you will be on the lookout for this sort of thing!
I am definitely interested in your running focussed plan; I will watch with interest
Great for new runners for those that are used to logging stuff online it's fun but yet another site to maintain
but it's fun so see how long I can keep remembering to put thing on it
I don't want to be a spoilsport, but the live updates at the side of the forum have already started annoying me and I've adblocked them. I'll have a look at the site though.
I don't like the fact that the minute milling is in decimals.10.7 min miling doesn't mean anything to me........
also under cycling.where is just normal road cycling
did you enjoy your 4 mile run seren nos
