Not everyone can run 1 km easily on their first run, or even run for longer than 2 minutes. That’s why mobiefit’s running training always begins at the first rung. By giving even the absolute beginner a chance to gradually improve their capacity to run, mobiefit RUN aims to make the learning curve easier for those on the fence.

In mobiefit RUN, you can select from among four running programs, in two distances. Both the 5 kilometre and 10 kilometre training programs offer Starter and Elite training, which vary in their final goal, intensity and schedule.

The programs do not directly focus on speed or distance, instead encouraging people to run for a set time, which is a simpler goal to set for beginners and novices.

The combination of walking and running makes finishing the first few sessions easy for even absolute beginners.

The Starter 5K program for 5km training is the ideal choice for absolute beginners. Starting with just one minute intervals, the goal is to help the user complete 30 minutes of running – considered semi-equivalent to a 5K – without taking a break. This a 9-Week program with 3 Sessions in a week.

The Elite 5K program has a higher intensity – with speed training or Fartleks, Tempo Runs, Interval Runs, Continuous Runs and more. This is best suited for people who can move well and those who are generally active, but haven’t given running a thought for fitness. If followed as prescribed and coupled with strength and conditioning training, the Elite 5K program guarantees that users will finish a 5K in under 30 minutes. This a 9-Week program with 3 Sessions in a week.

The Starter 10K program for 10km training takes it a step further. This one begins with just 2 minutes of running at a stretch and the final target is to complete a 60-minute non-stop run. This a 12-Week program with 4 Sessions in a week.

Similarly, the Elite 10K program comes with a guarantee that users will be able to finish a 10 km run in under an hour, provided they meticulously follow the schedule set for them, and don’t skimp on the strength training. This a 12-Week program with 3 Sessions in a week.

The Starter 10K program and the Elite 10K program are priced at Rs 299 and can be unlocked via an in-app purchase.
