Reroute Your Running with the FASTZach App
It’s day two in a new city for a work conference and you’re desperate for a run. You’re eager to see the sights on a run on your out-of-state vacation. A key workout falls on a day when you’re out of town. Or maybe you’re simply sick of all your same running routes. As runners, we’re always in need of a place to run and now finding that place is easier than ever.
Enter the FASTZach app, a unique running app that allows runners to create and find routes based on distance and geography. Runners can customize their experience to suit their style, whether it’s a quiet, scenic parkway or a jaunt through a bustling downtown street.
Amanda Brooks, creator, and founder of the FASTZach App is a fellow Minnesotan, mother, and runner who was all too familiar with the quest for a great and safe running route. Developed while marathon training and pregnant with her son Zach, FASTZach offers a patented approach to distance-based routes.
“One of the big reasons we created FASTZach was because I was traveling for work, traveling for family, moving about but still wanting and needing to get in my miles. I wanted to do my runs in different cities but still see something fun and be motivated by the surprise of a new route,” said Amanda.
FASTZach allows users to create routes based on distance, landmarks, and geography wherever you are for routes up to 150 miles! Simply select your distance in the app and explore what exists around you. Users can create routes along trails, parkways, and paths, customize and rearrange existing route information, GPS track you as you go, reroute back to the start for a quick return, and rank custom generated routes. Plus, FASTZach continues to grow and test new features including a training module component to be used by coaches, running groups, and race directors.
“Even just last week, I had 6 miles on the training calendar and I didn’t want to do it,” Amanda explained. “I was at home – I knew where to run, but I couldn’t get out the door. I logged in, requested 6 miles with a stop by the Lake Harriet Band Shell and headed out the door. It was exactly what I needed that day – the ability not to think and to have a 6-mile turn-by-turn run routed out for me.”
