Founder of Carrot.run
In 2014 I observed a problem with running...
there wasn't an easy way to run against
friends, family of different abilities across locations...
So I built an algorithm (like golf handicap) to create your weekly target,
a points game (like fantasy football) and created a whatsapp group...
The result was amazing. It inspired all types of runners (and non-runners) creating a way in which kept us motivated, encouraged.
During Covid, I developed it into a free mobile app, for everybody to enjoy across the world. 2 years later, 10,000+ runs have been uploaded,
across 36 countries.
It isn't perfect, this is still v1.3 - there are many things I would like to improve, but to do that requires investment and your support to keep going.
In 2023-24 we are working on 5 very exciting new features...
Carrot Kids - our exciting schools feature & platform
All distances - a new algorithm to allow any distance
Club Levels - stay motivated, keep your run streak going
Partner integrations - with parkrun and GARMIN
Carrot 100 challenge - can you run for 100 days?
Investor or interested partner?
