In the run up to Dublin's second ever Run Dublin @ Night 10KM event due to take place on Sunday 28th April, Samsung IT and Mobile Ireland has created a bespoke training app called Samsung Run. Users can download this running aid, which will act as a personal training log and help users discover new running routes nearby.
The app houses a host of specially created content to help the user prepare for the race at the end of April. Featuring hundreds of race routes around the country, runners also have access to training tips, a personal tracker option with social media sharing facilities as well as updates on the Samsung Run Dublin @ Night event itself. Race ambassadors Bryan Cullen, Dublin GAA Footballer and his wife Ailís McSweeney, accomplished Irish sprinter and current Irish 100m record holder, will provide exclusive tips and their own training diary for the upcoming 10KM race.
Commenting at the launch of the app, Gary Twohig, General Manager of Samsung IT & Mobile Ireland, "We’re thrilled to give Irish runners a unique training app in their preparation for the Run Dublin @ Night event. With less than seven weeks to go to the race on Sunday 28th April, I urge all those currently registered or hoping to do so, to download this app and get training!"
The app is now available for free download from the Google Play Store. Simply search Samsung Run.
