Sometimes Runkeeper users accidentally open two accounts under different or misspelt emails. Follow these steps to merge and delete a duplicate account.

*Important Notes Before Proceeding:

- Be sure that all of your activities from the app have synced to (if not, and you log out of the account on the phone, those activities will be lost)! If you see red triangles next to any activities then follow these steps before proceeding to the below instructions.

- If you have a Runkeeper Go subscription on your account, do not delete that account!

- Be sure to keep the account that has the most activities in it - this makes merging easier! If you have an account with less activities, but you have a Runkeeper Go subscription, email and we can accommodate this.
