Your Perfect Running Partner - Nike Run Club
Nike Run Club gives you everything you need to run better and more often-including GPS tracking of your run, audio guided running workouts, weekly and monthly distance challenges to keep you motivated, customized coaching plans that fit your goals and adapt to your progress, and nonstop motivation from your friends. In short: We'll help you reach your goals and have more fun getting there.


Get your perfect running partner-on your wrist. The Nike Run Club app supports all generations of Apple Watches, with a simple experience designed for the runner in motion.
Scroll down on the main screen to select a goal or start an Audio Guided Run with one of Nike's coaches and athletes. Swipe left to Settings to customize your run and turn on Cheers to receive cheers from friends while you run. And don't forget to check out the detail of your last few runs in Activity History. GPS support is only available on Series 2 and 3 Apple Watches.

Get all the detail you need-pace, distance, GPS route, elevation, heart rate, and mile splits. Real-time audio feedback will keep you on track during your run.

Get guidance, motivation and inspiration directly through in-ear audio from Nike's coaches as well as elite athletes like Mo Farah and entertainers such as Kevin Hart. The workouts are designed to help runners improve strength, speed and endurance and have fun doing it. Additionally, intervals are automatically marked along the way so all you need to do is press start and go. Each run is paired with a specific playlist, so be sure to connect to Apple Music or Spotify to get the best experience.

Join the Nike global community of runners in weekly and monthly distance challenges made to keep you motivated and moving. Reach goals, earn achievements, and go the distance.

Whether you want to get started, get fitter, or get race-ready, Nike Coach has a plan for you. One that starts with your goals and fitness level, and adapts as you progress.

Get motivated and earn trophies when you smash Personal Records like your fastest 5K or longest run. Challenge yourself to earn monthly milestone badges or see how long you can keep your running streak alive.

Easily compare and compete with friends on the distance leaderboard

A little support can go a long way. You can receive motivating in-run audio cheers from friends during your run to keep you going strong. And if you want to cheer your friends back, that's cool, too.

Personalize your activity posts by adding photos, stats and stickers, then customize who sees it-your other social networks, or just your Nike friends.

This app includes Nike stickers you can use in the app and on iMessage to share with friends. You can find the iMessage stickers in the iMessage app store by searching for NRC. By downloading the app, you agree that Nike provides these stickers for you to use only for that purpose. Nike may revoke this permission at any time.

Nike Run Club integrates with the Apple Health app to sync your workouts and record heart-rate data.

Please note that continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Good on the verge of great
timcorbin on 6/22/2018
I haven't used other running apps, but this works great most of the time. I run with only my Apple Watch and my biggest issue is that the route I run frequently doesn't sync back to the phone. Seems like something is wiping out the GPS data. The guided runs are fun, although I wish they could also be distance based and not just duration (trickier to do, I know).
Good app
CMWP37 on 6/22/2018
I really like the app! It’s easy to switch between outdoor and indoor treadmill runs. Surprisingly, the indoor treadmill feature is more accurate than in my built-in iPhone fitness app. I do wish it showed cadence though.
Improve the technology
MissBueno on 6/22/2018
I use this app every single time I go running, whether it is outside or on a treadmill. I love it, as I can measure my strength and improve my speed with the voice feedbacks during my runs. When using it outside it works perfectly, however on a treadmill there are consistent problems. The app does not measure the time accurately, I consistently get 10 extra seconds per km, which I had realized as the treadmill indicates the right times. Even when I put the treadmill on a faster speed, the app still does not measure the changed time. Please develop the technology/mechanics to ensure that the app is able to measure more accurately the speed of the runner, as this way we get inaccurate results and are not able to measure our strength. Thank you!
Frozen app
br@1nn on 6/22/2018
After update app is continuously frozen on the NRC page. Uninstalled from iPhone 7 then reinstalled. Issue persists. Restarted iPhone and reinstalled, issue still persisting. Let me know if there’s a time frame this is looking to get resolved, thank you for pushing an update in itself for frequent crashing; i hope the next update comes with some cool feature or two and resolves the current issue. -long time user, Brian
Daily workout.
Dinka53 on 6/22/2018
Best app I have found to motivate you to work harder. I love it
smaike on 6/21/2018
It’s easy to track and access all the content. Not a lot of unnecessary information. Easy to use.
I’d say there’s potential
Peruvian Death Weasel on 6/21/2018
First of all, what I like about the app is that, unlike the other apps I’ve used for running, it tracks distance rather than time (and thus keeps me honest and on target). My issues: 1. I can’t rearrange the schedule for a training program. E.g. I work late on Fridays, so that should be a rest day, and then I can do a long run on the weekend, but there’s no way I’ve found to change that in the app. 2. Some of my runs haven’t been saving, which is annoying for obvious reasons. On the whole it’s alright and there’s potential, but there are some major flaws that need working out.
Run Map
Dro_Ponce on 6/21/2018
Great App! Have an idea for a possible new feature, a interactive run map that displays all the runs you have done and where along with runs your friends/other app users have done
Time to move on
trev0802 on 6/21/2018
Been using it for a few years now. The app consistently crashes on phone and watch (series 2). Really quite sad because it’s a good app, but the most important part is reliability, and it just hasn’t been there in the last few years. The app is insanely slow and buggy on Series 2 watch, so much so it feels like you’re back in the 90s. I’m not sure how this is possible I’m moving on to Strava and recommend you do the same. It took me too long to realize this.
Distance tracking
Kevb151515 on 6/21/2018
During guided run, it does not track distance. Not ideal if you still keep moving during the “rest” periods and want to know your total distance covered.
brown322113 on 6/21/2018
Bring the miles challenge and let people set their own with their friends
No more friend challenges = lost motivation
JaxRam on 6/21/2018
I loved the Challenges feature that enabled you to play “tag” with your friends and keep each other motivated. I loved doing it with my girlies. It’s a “community” based app that took away a big chunk of my community. I still appreciate the bigger challenges but those are often daunting and not customizable to a certain distance/goal date. Plus they don’t come with tough love texts from best friends who want you to compete.
runner also on 6/21/2018
Last update wiped out my run history. Not sure I want to continue using or apply this update.
Almost love it
First halfathon on 6/21/2018
I have been using the app for about 7 months now. My one complaint is that recently it has been buggy on pausing/restarting my workout. I live in the city so a lot of my runs are on the sidewalk and I have to stop for lights. It’s very frustrating for it to pause my workout but not restart it and to lose all that time/distance when I’m trying for a race. Please fix!!!
Won’t let me change my birthday date
hunterrams on 6/20/2018
It won’t let me change my birth date when registering.
Kp957 on 6/20/2018
I really loved this app. It was pretty accurate on the treadmill which was great. But the last few times I’ve used it it has turned off and not tracked any of my runs. Very disappointing 🙁
Works alright. Love the guided runs
Nightmode_1_20_17 on 6/20/2018
The guided runs make this app. Without it I would probably switch to Runkeeper. I came across GPS issues in the watch app where it doesn’t pick up my location. Run keeper has a gps signal icon within the app that lets you know the gps signal and will track your run. Only 2 out of my last 8 runs were actually tracked. The other 6 were not. I tried contacting mike but they keep having me uninstall and reinstall the app to try to fix all my issues. All they need to do is request GPS when I start the app. Maybe put an icon in the watch app to let me know my location is set.
BPM Issues
carters2712 on 6/20/2018
I have updated, deleted, reinstalled and turn off/on all metrics and yet the BPM still does not work.
Bad coach
Rebida79 on 6/20/2018
I’m using the my coach feature and I came up with a few problems. My plan is a 8 week plan, and my NTC workout did not register. I thought maybe the transfer of apps cause that fault, so I let it go. The next day I run 1.25 miles for my recovery run I finish the workout only to see that it did not register. What a bummer and I recommend this app to 3 friends.
Doesnt work right away
eddiear33 on 6/20/2018
App has glich. Takes a couple of times to get it working right.
obi_nonekanobi on 6/20/2018
I’ve used this app for about a month now and it’s not bad I like the gps feature and the curated playlist for any style of running I was a little confused about what the ‘Nike fuel points’ were but they work as a step counter, wish that it worked towards getting Nike stuff I think that would attract a lot more people.
CKN05 on 6/20/2018
Totally gets you motivated to get out and go! I feel like I have a coach again!
New update lost all my Running history
Renshi.Depue on 6/20/2018
How can I be on this app for eight years and now Nike wants to erase all my running history. Over 2200 miles in eight years.
One of the best workout apps
❤️katybaby❤️ on 6/19/2018
If you are a runner this is a must-have app before I got this app I was running but I didn't know how far but now that I have this app it tells me how far I've run and I can set a certain distance goal like half a mile and go on a run and it will tell me when I've completed half a mile great app and very easy to set up and use👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
I love it !
whaliah muhammad on 6/19/2018
This app is amazing !!!! I’m so glad I was told about it !
Mixed Feelings
lrhett on 6/19/2018
I first started using this app when I got my Apple Watch, and was running my first 10k. I love how continent the coach planning is. The only downfall is it cuts out, A LOT! So it defeats the purpose of offering coached runs or benchmark runs when it won’t record your progress accurately to use the adjustment feature as you progress.
The mileage seems off...
@BobbyRayJr on 6/19/2018
I Thought it was just me but ut seems that the mileage is a but off. It says I’ve ran a longer distance than I’ve actually ran.
coastalpanda on 6/19/2018
Somehow with each update it seems to get more annoying, from the constant pop ups before a run asking you to check out something, to hijacking my music and constantly pausing it if I’m using apples default music app, and always logging you out after each update. Now I am unable to login to the app, and constantly getting a server is unavailable error, making it basically useless.
Watch tends to crash
Beektron on 6/19/2018
Watch crashes at end of runs 1 out of 5 times.
My Spotify
Pícal0 on 6/19/2018
My Spotify premium don’t play
Pretty good app, but...
NathanWoo on 6/19/2018
I love using this app, it is really useful in seeing my progress as a runner. It is also fairly user friendly and easy to use. My only complaint is how utterly broken the “pace” feature is. I don’t know how the app calculates your instantaneous pace, all I know is that it is horribly wrong. For example, I can run a 6’ mile, and my instantaneous pace is entirely between 7’45’’ and 8’15’’. You don’t have to be an expert in Calculus to recognize the problem here. I really love this app, and would like for the developers to address the issue of instantaneous pace, or at least explain to me how it calculates it.
LP4NFFDV on 6/18/2018
I have restarted and redownloaded this app several times and it still crashes on my phone so I have no other problems since I can’t even use the app. I didn’t have any problems until the recent update! Smh
Not effective anymore
Taylor750i on 6/18/2018
I have been using the Nike+ running app for over two years now. I even bought the Nike+ Apple Watch to increase my use of this app. However, after many updates it seems this app is going backwards with regards to performance. On the watch the app can take up to 1 minute to load. Additionally, just to start a workout takes effort to start the app. I have to tap the screen multiple times to get it to begin. The GPS works fine, but I question the motion results for the distance run as being off by more than .2 miles. If more updates would focus on the functionality of this app and not just adding more stuff that would be beneficial. Additionally, if this app would detect performance better without the buggy ness of this app I might consider using it again. Right now UA Map my Run works fine.
Headspace and Nike
CastleElsinore on 6/18/2018
A dream combination listening to Andy Puddicombe and Coach Bennet. A great collaboration between these men and their respective missions to keep us healthy. Thanks gents.
Does not open on iPhone X
BDale 2018 on 6/18/2018
Love the app, use it with all my friends and never had a problem until I switched to the iPhone X, now it only opens the first time and then every time I want to use it I have to uninstall and reinstall to get it to work that one time. Screen turns on goes back and then backs out and the app is open in the background but I can’t actually get to it after the first use.
Getting very bad
jsjdhdhhddh on 6/18/2018
Gets glitchier by the day. Closed out and didn’t save half way through my run. Takes 2 minutes to even start a run after opening.
Ted E. Bare on 6/18/2018
It would be great if we miss a day (run) at the end of the week, we could still go back to that week and run it. Currently it doesn’t allow you to go back, once the week is finished.
Least Likely Candidate
Sy_TBL on 6/18/2018
When I started I hated running! But the playlists, the guided run options, the headspace options!!! They are perfect no matter your starting point! Today I just did a mile at 16 minutes. I started at 23 minutes per mile! This is what a little effort and great badges has done for me. So if you aren't a runner, start with the “I don't wanna run,Run” and you are half way there!!!
México le ganó a Alemania
bigandacandadaddy on 6/17/2018
Its dope how its all free and it really helps im glade this app exists.
Not recommended
WHY SO VIOLENT on 6/17/2018
It worked for 1 minute then wouldnt stop pausing my workout I do not renamed downloading this it does not work if I could I would give it a negative 1000 star review
app got worse with the update
Mr. F. Sims on 6/17/2018
been using the app for years, but since the last couple of updates I can’t use the app on my Apple Watch every time I start the app on my Apple Watch it crashes please fix in the mean time I switch to Strava
Still no option to disable hidden/undocumented audio
m1234567890123456789 on 6/17/2018
Update on June 17, 2018: after the latest update, my already playing audio halts when I touch the QuickStart link. I have a new workaround to do: 1) actually start my run, then 2) restart the audio I was previously enjoying. I’ve given up expecting this app to let me run when I want and listen to what I want without interference. I love everything this app does with time, distance, and routes. I greatly dislike the inability to turn off all audio. Even though I set Audio Feedback to OFF, I still get some noise at the beginning, middle, and end of my run. It talks about a goal I've never set during a run. Where does that come from? This is annoying. More importantly, it can be unsafe. I ended one run recently and heard a noise I thought was a screeching vehicle approaching behind me. I flinched. Turns out is was the increasing applause auto snippet. What other undocumented sounds I have yet to hear will surprise me? You'd think that a setting of OFF meant OFF. Who's talking when I run on Sunday? Where's the option to turn that OFF? After many 5.0 updates, preventing control over audio for an app I paid for is unacceptable. Not every user of this app wants the noise the Nike markinging dept assumes we want. Did anyone else notice the bulk of 5 star ratings here are posted in a two day range? Hardly a random set of user input. Instead of skewing reviews with suspicious, insincere posts, how about returning to core functionality that users can control-- just like the way the app used to work?
Some improvements needed
ptsmith284 on 6/17/2018
Coached runs are excellent hope to see new ones in the future. Maybe even some that match your mood, like a mood category. Tracks well, leaderboard is fun. Would also like to see an option to share friends or add friends from another friends screen. Maybe even a ID feature where you can more easily be found!
Challenges aren’t completing
fredzos on 6/17/2018
Not sure if anyone else had this problem? But my challenges aren’t showing as complete even though it has my logged miles in the challenge that clearly shows that I’ve surpassed the needed miles for the challenge. It just shows as a previous challenge.
mag pie <3<3 on 6/17/2018
I’m a amateur runner I love this app, the support I get from other runner and the guided runs. The only thing I wish was different was at the end of a run the app would prompt you to sprint it out and that there were more guided runs that we longer for marathon training.
very buggy and half assed
Dm9226 on 6/17/2018
the my coach capability doesn’t work at all with just the apple watch 3, and it also crashes regularly on the iphone
Watch can’t handle it
Squeakersc063 on 6/17/2018
They keep pumping features and newscasts into the watch app and the thing just can’t handle it. Constantly takes forever to get a run to start only for it to crash and lose all my info. And that’s if it doesn’t decide i need to connect to my phone to set it up again which it does at least once a week.
Love and suggestions
Sister79 on 6/16/2018
Love it all! Would like to see hill training incorporated into the training plans. And is it possible to know when you reach the distance on sprint training? I hate having to watch the screen to know when I get to the specified distance.
Nike’s running app has gotten worse and worse
jwxapplewstch on 6/16/2018
I have logged more than 7,000 kilometers using Nike running watch and now Apple Watch with Nike run club. The initial release of this app for the Apple Watch was so great but now what a mess! Crashes often, after a long run, the app suddenly crashes and nothing is logged. Starting and stopping is so slow and watch app Is often unresponsive. I am ready to say good bye and using another app! Bye, Nike!
Dig this app.
the real "PAULEY" on 6/16/2018
Take it to the next level with NRC. SHUT UP & RUN!
