LIVE Tracking

Enable LIVE tracking to let your followers know that you’re going out for a run. 

Follow these simple steps to enable LIVE Tracking in the adidas Running app and allow adidas Runtastic apps members to see where you are on the map, how far you’ve gone, and how fast you’re going:

  • Tap the Activity Setup icon next to the “Start” button
  • Tap “LIVE Tracking”
  • Toggle LIVE Tracking on

How will my followers be notified that I am LIVE tracking?

Shortly after you tap “START LIVE,” the link to your LIVE activity will be sent via push notification to your followers (those who have enabled push notifications for LIVE tracking). Those who do not have push notifications activated can find the link to your LIVE activity either in the Notification Inbox or at the top of the News Feed under “Now LIVE.” 


Cheering is a feature in the adidas Running app that allows your followers to “cheer” you on in real-time while viewing your LIVE tracking activity. By selecting one of several preselected cheers, you will hear this played in your headphones or through your phone’s speaker if the volume is enabled.
