Runkeeper Activity Merger

September 23rd, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

If you are a Runkeeper user like I am you have no doubt experienced the frustration of having your mobile device fail during a run, interrupting your recording. Then, if you re-start the app, you end up with two partial records of one single event. Runkeeper (currently at least) has no facilities for merging these activities together in either the mobile or web apps. This sucks if you are actually trying to monitor your training, or are just really anal about your data like I am.

Luckily, other people with far better programming skills than I have created a simple (and free) web app to fix this. Called, simply enough, the “Runkeeper activity merger” (their capitalization scheme – not mine) it essentially allows you to take two exported Runkeeper files and merge them together so that you can upload them as a single event.

I had this problem during a 5-mile run this past weekend, and the app saved my data.

Go to http://zip-zero.com/runkeeper/index.php and follow the simple directions that you can find via the Help link in the top left corner of the page.

Good luck.

    Sometimes my battery runs out or GPS goes completely wonky in the middle of a run and I have to start a new activity – it drives me nuts.

    This tool is one of those unnecessary bits of brilliance that caters perfectly to the neat-freak in me. Relatively speaking, my computer is tidier than any room in my house!
    Having all of my irritatingly split activities neatly recombined is just fantastic. Thank you SO much for making this slice of fried gold.
