Running is one of the fastest growing sports branches in the world and in Croatia. We are witnessing more and more people running and getting more and more used to running, and once your running is tucked under your skin, always bring your running shoes with you, even when traveling.
And then what happens when you turn your passion for running into a business?
The SightRun app happens to be created in 2017 by a young four-member Zagreb team of passionate runners. The startup Factory Zagreb competition gave the team an incentive to develop an application that helps runners view Zagreb. SightRun is a homegrown startup, the winner of several awards. SightRun combines running and tourist sightseeing, which is why it is ideal for those who travel frequently, do not have much time in the new city, but that is why they always carry sneakers with them to do their training. SightRun App is a mobile application that combines running with touristic sightseeing. It navigates you through the city telling you short stories about the sights you are passing by. Imagine having your personal running guide in a new city that you are visiting. And he’s available at any time. SightRun app gives you the freedom to run stress free without a mobile phone in your hand and without looking at the map. As it is GPS triggered, you can run at your own pac. SightRun not only does help runners get to know a new destination, it also presents the destination as Runner's Friendly. A specific way of creating tours, it is possible to promote services and products that may be of interest to this audience through the tour.
In addition to Zagreb and other Croatian cities such as: Opatija, Pula, Rovinj, Split, Šibenik, Hvar, Omiš, Poreč, Fužine, Karlovac, Osijek, Samobor, Varaždin, they are also considering expanding to cities beyond Croatian borders (currently in the Graz and Munich), and as they expand to other cities and countries, they are also considering a new app name.
