The inspiration for Racefully began with an ending - two, in fact- when cofounders, Chris Pointon and David Naylor, both found themselves without their running communities. For Chris, it was the move back to the UK from Boston. For David, his best running mate moving away.
And so the idea for Racefully was born-- an app that lets you run with friends even when you can’t be in the same place. Luckily, Chris and David found each other at the right time, and Racefully was founded. A year of development, tonnes of market research, and countless runs later, the Racefully app was officially launched in July, 2016.
