Live Tracking

Our updated Live Tracking experience now lets you choose up to 5 of your phone contacts to share your trip with. Keep reading to learn how!

Enabling Live Tracking

The Live Tracking feature is only available to Runkeeper Go members. Learn more about Runkeeper Go. (Non-Runkeeper Go users will still be able to track you!)

Once you've activated Live Tracking, your Live activities can be viewed by others if they go to your public profile (http://runkeeper.com/user/YOURUSERNAME/activitylist). Friends don't need a Runkeeper account to view your activity - just be sure you have your Activities and Maps set to viewable by everyone and also that you do not have your profile/account set to private (the checkbox at the bottom of this page).

Friends will be able to view a basic, static page with your location on it, that page will require manual refreshing to view your updated location. Those viewing a Live Tracking link with a Runkeeper account will be able to view a more detailed, auto-refreshing page. 

Please note you can no longer share a link to your Live activity on Facebook.
