Find your motivation and change your life.
Around 50% of the population undertakes no physical exercise, due to lack of proper motivation. This well documented fact is detrimental to health, wellbeing and quality of life.
Run4more is an application that rewards activity such as walking, cycling, running, not only as an exercise, but as means of mobility in general, such as going to work, the supermarket or just any destination.The R4M points can be redeemed in partner companies by winning gift cards, discounts and special offers.
We are not another Running/Fitness Application focusing only on those that already exercise.We are a playful and engaging mechanism to create, manage and maintain effective internal and external, financial and non-financial incentives towards a daily physically active way of life.
With the use of Machine learning our platform will combine internal and external incentives, adjust rewards to various types of users and match offers with users’ interests, maximizing engagement and motivation.
Raising awareness concerning the benefits of physical activity, we bring closer users and partner companies in actively leading and supporting a healthier and sustainable way of life.
