Product Summary

Nike Run Club is a completely free run-tracking and training app—there is no paid tier. 

Nike Run Club offers three different training plans: Getting Started, 5K, and Half-Marathon. There are also a variety of audio-guided training runs available sorted by distance, time, or goal. These audio-guided runs are led by either Nike’s running coaches or your favorite Nike athletes. Nike also offers the ability to tag your shoes with each run to track their mileage. 

There are also social features within Nike Run Club. You can participate in global challenges, link up with your friends, and follow a leaderboard. You can also find local running groups near you. 

Users found this app to be good but frustrating. They enjoyed the app when it worked, but users across Apple and Android had trouble with glitchiness. Apple users struggled to get runs started on their Apple Watches to sync with the app. Android users shared that the app was frequently logging them out, forcing them to log in almost every time they opened up the app. 

When the app worked they found the coaching to be surprisingly good for a free app. They found the audio-guided runs to be really motivating. They also liked the badges and challenges. Some users did share that the app was best for when they started running and they outgrew it as they became a more serious runner.
