Personal Record Race Badges

Our team is excited to announce a new feature in the Runkeeper app! You can now view your personal records for your races right on your "Me" tab. The badges will unlock when you complete a 5k, 10k, half marathon, or marathon race and they'll update when you set new records for those races. There are also personal record badges for longest distance and highest elevation. You can click right into them to view more details for the specific activity that unlocked each badge. 


If you tap "Compare Workouts" and you're subscribed to Runkeeper Go you'll see graphs that compare and rank your paces for those specific distances. You need to be subscribed to Runkeeper Go to view those graphs. Here's what this looks like:


Important Note: These badges only unlock for those specific race distances. If you run a 10k and it is also your fastest 5k time, you won't see the 5k time update since it would be considered outside the distance to unlock the 5k badge. Only races that were tracked as the "Running" activity type will unlock the badges.

**The monthly 5k and 10k challenges in the app are different from race badges. Those challenges will complete when you complete distances that are at least 5k or 10k. For example, if you complete a 15k distance, it would complete both the 5k and 10k monthly challenges all at once. You wouldn't see any race badges on your "me" tab unlock in this instance since it is over the distance of a 5k and a 10k.** 

If you ran a race and your badge didn't unlock feel free to contact the Support Team using the link below, this is likely due to inaccurate GPS. You could edit your activity's map and delete a few points to get it inside the distance parameters we've set. Or you can ask our team to use our "fix it" button and we'll smooth out the GPS for your activity.
