Runkeeper Activity Merger

September 23rd, 2012 2 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.
