  • Others in front of you will appear live as avatars. You can also see name tags of runners near to you as well as Tim Peake on the side of your screen.
  • Good luck!

  • Manual: in this mode, simply adjust the video speed once in the video by swiping side to side or using the buttons that appear when you touch the screen.

  • TreadTracker: this treadmill speed sensor is placed under the treadmill allowing it to make light contact with the rotating tread to calculate speed. The treadmill speed is sent in real praguee to RunSocial. TreadTracker can be purchased at www.runsocial.com »

  • Life Fitness: if you have access to a Disocover console (with the QR code displayed on the screen) or the Track+ home treadmill you can connect RunSocial directly.
