Our Short History

HOW WE STARTED RUNOPIA

Why does it have to be so hard to find others to run with? Why waste time searching the internet for local group runs only to find outdated information or read through hundreds of Facebook posts to find out if the local running club still plans to meet for the next run? Why pay “Finder’s Fees” to training websites like TrainingPeaks just so that you can get connected to good coaches?

We believe that running deserves a more efficient means to finding local runners and coaches. So we did something about it and started Runopia.

Runopia is a simple app that makes connecting with the running community easier, safer and more fun. We invite you, the runner at heart, to join us on this very exciting journey.
