Neurun’s founder and CEO, Cade Netscher, a neuro-science graduate, was seeking to build a mobile application that enabled runners to mentally prepare for marathon races. The app needed to allow runners to see a race course prior to actually running a long-distance marathon. The application need to host marathon course video content and map data from the physical world to overlay onto the course video (altitude, mile-markers, etc.). Commerce and social integrations were necessary as well to enable brand sponsored commerce as well as community engagement amongst runners around the globe.
Transcend Digital developed the mobile applications (iOS and Android) that power the training of endurance runners around the world. The applications allow for users to –
- Visualize all elements of a course (mile markers, elevation, aid stations, important landmarks)
- View geo-tagged insights from event and coaches to help participants develop a more mindful approach to achieving their goals
- Participate in weekly training Q&A’s with coaches
