SightRun App is a mobile application that combines running with touristic sightseeing. It navigates you through the city telling you short stories about the sights you are passing by.
Imagine having your personal running guide in a new city that you are visiting. And he’s available at any time.
The authors of the SightRun App are runners just like you. We’ve been doing running tours in Zagreb for a while (maybe you already ran with us!?) and we knew we are doing a good job because of the reviews we got from our runners. Still, we noticed that some runners rather enjoy running by themselves. And that the hotel receptionist didn’t have the right answer to the question – where can I go for a run?
We didn’t want you to leave from Zagreb without getting to know the city, a city full of history, interesting stories, local legends, great restaurants… And that’s why the SightRun app was born!
SightRun App gives you the freedom to run stress free without a mobile phone in your hand and without looking at the map. As it is GPS triggered, you can run at your own pace.
First you’ll need to download the app from Google Play and register.
Then you download the tour you wish to run. You go to the starting point of the tour, put your earphones on, press play and start running. SightRun app then navigates you around the city while giving you just enough information about the attractions you see during your run.
With SightRun app you can be sure you will do your daily run and explore the city. Later you can always decide to go back to some of your favourite location to explore some more, visit a museum or go to a local restaurant.
After the run, you can tell us how your run was as this helps us improve SightRun app to make better tours for you runners. You will also get a summary of the tour that you can share with your friends.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a first time visitor or a local runner. SightRun app offers tours in the local language as well as in English.
The first destination that we are presenting are cities in Croatia. Besides Zagreb, you will soon be able to explore the cities such as Rovinj, Pula, Zadar, Šibenik, Split, Dubrovnik…
We’ll keep you up to date and let you know when we add new tours to the SightRun app. This way you can plan your run in a new city or even get inspired for your next trip.
We really appreciate your opinion and we want you to be brutally honest. If you have any suggestions how to make SightRun app even better, if you have tips for the next cities we should add or you just want to help us make a tour for your city – let us know and send us an e-mail. We look forward to hearing from you!
