Runners don’t want to waste time thinking about their routes.
They want to know where to go and what to do.
So when they use the running route planning tool, neeko, they want to see where their next run will take them.
They also want to be able to see the routes they can’t get to.
Neeko is a free, web-based app that allows users to create a running path that can be tracked and saved for future reference.
For example, if they have an easy way to get to a new location but have trouble getting to the next intersection, Neeko will show them where to start and how long it will take.
Users can also upload their own routes to Neekos running plan, which are automatically uploaded to a Google map.
They can also share their routes with friends.
For now, Neesos running route plans are available only in Canada, but Neekojabs hopes to expand its reach worldwide soon.
For its second annual Running With Neekoi event, Neeksos launched the app in the United States, the United Kingdom and France in September, with plans to expand to other cities and countries in the future.
“We wanted to create an app that would be used by people in every corner of the world, whether it’s for work, travel, recreation, or just being outdoors,” says NeekoS head of marketing and community Kevin Tully.
“It’s really important for us to share this great running experience with as many people as possible.
It’s a great way to promote running and bring awareness to running.”
For example, Neetho uses Google Maps to help people plan their routes, which they can use to find where they should go and how much it will cost them to get there.
“People don’t have to worry about getting to a place that’s a good distance from their next stop,” Tully says.
“They can just click on the blue dot and get on with their day.”
