If you want to hear an audio cue when you're halfway done with your route, or halfway finished with a defined workout, upvote this request!

definitely! This would make it easier to know when it's time to turn back when your route is not a loop

Please please please! I mostly do out-and-backs and it's difficult to figure out when I need to turn around.

I quit using MapMyRun because of it's lack of a halfway cue. The only thing stopping me from settling on RK is this. Give us a halfway cue!!!! Please.

YES!!! I need this feature! I like to know when I have to turn back without checking the time on my screen. at the moment

This would be great!! Also, an app I used when I started running would remind me of my last tenth of whatever distance I was running. That would really put me in gear, and helped push myself!

I really want this feature. It would awesome if it can be set with time or distance. I run on my lunch break and would like to know when I am half way through my break as well.

Yes! Because not every route is a loop. Especially so if you are following a training plan or are a new runner.

Nike+ Running does this and it's great. They also start counting down the miles left to go on distance-targeted runs. This means on a 13 mile run, you would never hear a number higher than "6.5 miles", making it psychologically easier to handle long runs.

While I would love to see this feature implemented, you can achieve the same by creating a custom workout with two intervals.
For example if you want to do a 47 minutes workout you can create a custom one with two intervals of 23:30, or just one with a repetition.

If the Feature Request "Turn By Turn GPS Directions" would meet your needs, I'd recommend voting for it. It currently has the third highest number of votes on the wish list, so you might help push it into development.

Most of my runs are out-and-backs. I'd prefer to set a total distance goal and have Runkeeper tell me when to turn around. Nike Plus already has this feature.

Yes please. It doesn't make sense they can have a finish audio cue but not a half way / turn around one

I would really like to have an indicator of when you are halfway done with the current workout. For example, if you are running 3 miles, I would love to have an audio cue at the 1.5 mile mark. Or, if you are doing 8 sets of intervals, give us an audio cue after the 4th interval set. This would be a wonderful feature.

"Halfway there" and "Last 400 meters" optional audio cues would be beneficial to regular Runkeeper users!

I completely agree. I can't count the number of times I've miscounted intervals and went out too far. (Or I just can't count while running...)
