Runna Raises $6.3M for Running Coach App

December 1, 2023

Runna, a personalized running coach app that debuted in 2021, has closed another venture capital round, raising £5 million ($6.3 million), bringing Runna’s total raised funds to over £8 million ($10 million).

JamJar led the latest funding, which included participation from Eka Ventures, Venrex and Creator Ventures.

Since its launch, Runna says its running app has grown to coach hundreds of thousands of runners in over 180 countries, and the latest funding will be used to develop “sophisticated coaching algorithms” with the help of AI.

Formerly known as RunBuddy, the app was founded by Dom Maskell and Ben Parker, two best friends who love running. The app coaches users based on their ability and goals and offers strength and conditioning plans from top running coaches. Athletech News
