My new app, TrailPro, is now available on the App Store! It's entirely free (and ad-free), and available now for iOS.

TrailPro is a fitness app for trail runners, and you could think of it as a cross between a conventional running app (Strava, Runkeeper, etc), and a hiking app (AllTrails, Komoot, etc). It sits at the end of the chain: you can record your workouts in your preferred app, and as long as they're written to Apple Health (along with location data), you can visualize and analyze them in TrailPro.


I started trail running a few years ago, enjoying the focus on being in nature, the variable pacing associated with different terrain, and the technical challenges of steep inclines and declines. I was also suffering from some knee pain at the time, and the reduction in impact from running on trails rather than concrete (along with my beloved bouncy Hoka Speedgoats) suited my legs better.

Whilst tracking with typical running apps like Strava or Apple Workout is perfectly fine, I felt a disparity between the data I wanted to see, and the data they wanted to show me. When trail running I often change my approach depending on the terrain (whether that be walking up a particularly steep slope, or stopping to take photos or take in nutrition), however any changes in pace messed up my split times, and made it more difficult to compare performance across runs.



If you have any thoughts, feedback, or suggestions, I'd love to hear from you!
