Different Activity Types

We don't have any current plans to introduce new activity types to Runkeeper, but we know it's something a lot of people have asked for and we want to keep the conversation going in the event that our plans change!

Let us know what activity types you'd like to see in the comments, so we can stay informed about what you guys are looking for. Happy tracking!

Unicycle would be great :)
I know it might sound a bit exotic, but the tracking can't be the same as bicycle because of the amount of parameters needed to keep balance and the average speed which is definitely slower.
Thank you for considering my request ;)

After walking 1.6 miles pushing my 3 year old (weighing 2 stone 8lbs) in his buggy and carrying my 2 month old in a harness (he weights 13lbs) I did wonder how many calories I had burnt. This had me thinking (as you do when your exercising) that using your children as a gym had many benefits. It's free, it's effective and it encourages children to have a healthy attitude towards exercise. It would be great to see a well respected app like yours supporting exercise like this.

Trail riding on horseback! Many of us use your app for riding. Usually we use the "mountain biking" activity so it doesn't look so strange that we're always out going 12 miles in the woods. Can't do the "UP VOTE" for some reason. Another person's comment said it was broken on Safari and I'm using a Mac.

Paddle Boarding, Easy, Moderate and Intense. There is a growing amount of people on the waters using these everyday. The workout can be easy to intense so you would have to adjust calorie burn. SUP would be great to see on there.

I would really like to see RIDING added as an activity. I go riding quite a lot and is unfortunately unable to add that activity to my events.. I love your app and won't use any other to compensate for loss of tracking.
Hope you will consider it.
With regards, Camilla :-)

Request in activity log. Please consider adding location to the activity log. Its so much hazzel to browse through all your activities to find when you last ran at a specific location. I would like to see Activity, Distance, Location in activity log. Wouldnt that be helpful, runkeeper people? For instance today I ran in Hammarskog, but when I last ran there, what time did i have? I don't want to browse through all my runs trying to find last run in Hammarskog.

I would like kayaking, snowshoeing and especially the rebounder or mini trampoline. Rebounder is great for adding steps on fit bit and MMF has it, it is easier on knees and for older people to get a good work out.

I'd like to see kayaking and/or canoeing! I am not sure if those activities are on par with "rowing" or not. I think kayaking in particular is extremely popular!!

Many of us Cross Country skiers are training with Roller Skies during the summer. I need to be able to log my training activities on Roller Skies separate from Cross Country skies. Please add "Roller Skies" as an activity.
