Custom Personal Records

Some people would find it helpful to know their best times for certain distances. For example, you could select 1 mile and find out what your fastest mile time or keep track of your fastest 5K time!

Let us know if you'd be interested in this kind of feature and how it would help you in your fitness routines!

True! Now the best times are for example calculated between 8-12 km or 5-8 km and I run my 5km different than my 8km.

Yes, I would like to be able to see best times for a specific distance. And often, a PR mile may be one of several miles during a speedwork or tempo activity, so it would be cool if even an interval, not necessarily a specific activity, could be recognized as a PR...But that may be asking for too much ;)

Yes, please. This feature will make Runkeeper the best running app on earth. I used nikeplus, this month i start to use runkeeper and this feature is the only one i am missing. It really helps to stay motivated especially during the run.

Absolutely this would be a great feature. Runkeeper just told me I hit my 3rd fastest ever time for 5 km. It would be great to know just how far off best I was, and when/where my best run was.

Yes, I'd really like to see this for common intervals (for example 1,5,10 km&mile), including within activities (e.g. if I run a 7k but get my best 5k time during that 7k).

I would like to see my records on the same period selected on the time line.
At the report web page, the selected period should reflect on the records table.
I would like to be able to see the results on the selected period

Please make this happen. I am recovering from two major knee surgeries and love data collected from my runs. This would be valuable information and extra motivation to push myself harder.

Yes please. I am running a 10k this weekend and I was just trying to see all my past 10k runs to help me figure out a waht my pace should be. This would be a great feature.

Yes please. I am always stopping and saving runs at certain distances to record certain times so I can compare them later. 5k, 10k, half, etc. Would love to just have this done automatically. I think the Nike app does this now.

I want to vote for this feature. I agree with a poster on this thread, the Nike app does this and has been able to do this for years. This is one of the biggest things I miss after switching from Nike to Runkeeper and it almost tempts me to go back. Please make it happen and let us know when it's available.

Thanks.

If possible can we get a status on this request? I see it is from February.
I feel the fastest times are clear indications of progress for many. I have tried several and feel this to be the only reason that I do not invest heavily in runkeeper.
Also, quite importantly, that the time is not a split time but a distance time. So the fasted 1k could occur between 1.3 and 2.3 distance covered.

Amy update appreciated!

I significantly vary the nature of my runs, as a lot of runners do, varying between intervals, threshold runs, tempo runs, fartleks, group runs, etc.

It would be great to see a feature that gave you statistics such as "best 10k" per month "best 5k", etc. That way you could see progress amongst the mix of other activities you're doing. Showing "average" pace is not really a fair representation of progress for a given month with so many varied work outs.

Perhaps this could even be achieved by looking thru segments of runs to show the best consecutive 5k or 10k etc. within any runs for the month, regardless if they're a straight 5k run, or part of a bigger workout? This would maybe aid the feature request to ignore warm-ups / cool-downs in statistics too!

5k records
10k records are essential.
In whatever time those records happen, e.g. from 4.3 to 9.3km

Would love this!
Being able to display several distances you care about would be a good motivational feature..
I like to keep track of 1/2/5/10k but do so manually at the moment..

I would be hugely interested. Something Strava does very well by the way. They are even to tell you your fastest run for a given route, which is quite handy as all of us would have routes they run a lot of times throughout the year

Yes, please. During the week I vary the length of my runs, so if I could choose the distance I would like to compare, it would make it easier to see the progress per distance

Yes! It's too bad there hasn't been any update on this since February. I signed up for whatever Elite is called now hoping to get this data. Very sad I can't keep track of PRs with Runkeeper, since my fastest mile might be forever buried in mile two of a four-mile run.

PR times are essential in Run tracking application. Time for distances such as: 100m, 500m, 1 km, 1 mi, 5 km, 10 km, half and full marathons must be present as they are the indicators of progress and motivate the user for more undertakings.

Not sure it's even worth asking as this thread doesn't show any updates from the developers. But to agree with the rest of the users in here, please at least consider adding this feature. And when you display a PR time on my homepage within the app, let me choose which one to display and from which type of activity.

+1 for this old feature request.
I'd find this very useful. I have just completed my first marathon training plan, and want to almost start afresh with 5k, 10k and half-marathon races.
I really want a report of my best times for each of these distances (and may others, if it can be customised), so I know when I'm improving, and what pace to aim for.

Runkeeper product management team - Where is this on your radar? Even some of the most basic applications provide these key performance metrics. You have plenty of feedback to support this enhancement. Time to prioritize above superfluous items like Runkeeper DJ.

Yes, definitely! This is exactly what I was trying to do, wanting to compare my 13 mile runs to my time on my 1/2 marathon today. RunKeeper told me it was the "4th fastest in the 10-16 mile range," but I want to get more specific. I know I run 10 miles faster than the 1/2 marathon. Thanks for looking into this!

It would definitely be useful. I am using a training plan for a 10k race and am therefore running varying distances, but it's extremely difficult to assess my improvement. I would like to have an easy way to check my 10K times. The only way to do this today is to take the km split info and calculate the time from the average speed of each km - impossible. Today I run with 2 apps open for this reason. The other app allows me easily to check my 10km time because it has the time for each km, and the accumulative time as you progress. It also shows you your best time for specific distances. It would be great to have this feature, or an improved version, in this app.

+1. This feature would be fantastic. It would probably lock me into Runkeeper because I keep using Nike+ which tracks my best 1km, 5km and 10km etc. this is especially useful when I am trying to beat my PB and I don't want to sift through numerous runs to find it.

Yes please! For me I would love to have 5 km, 10 km, 15 km, 20 km, half marathon, 30 km, marathon - thank you ๐Ÿ˜„

I would like to have a custom report where I could give a range of distances, say 3 to 3.4 miles, and get the average and record time. I am following one of your custom plans, and my goal this week is to beat my best 5K time. No problem figuring that out, I thought. The data is right in the app. But I don't see any way to get the answer to this basic question, one that Runkeeper posed.
