Bring back MyCoach! That was the best part of the app because it was so easy to track your runs and overall schedule.. Might have to move to a new app now
By Riley Hoover
Had a hard time tracking my runs until now. would definitely recommend.
Apple watch froze at 3.76mi and didn't log my run! 1/5
I lost my run, I'm not sure how to get it added. Please fix the glitch, I normally enjoy using the app but it's upsetting that my run total is not accurate and it's as if I never ran. It just disappeared 😭😭
Great app for anyone wanting to start running or those who already run 5/5
The app is really user friendly and has some great features. It tracks just about any statistic you could think of! It’s also a great way to stay motivated to keep on grinding.
Was great but the update lost what I like best. 1/5
I loved this app so much when it had the coaching option. I see that you can find the coach workouts on a pdf but it isn’t the same. I am bummed out as now I don’t have much of a use for this app anymore.
Glitches but still great! 5/5
I will occasionally experience glitches between the app and Apple Watch syncing. Even with that, it’s still my favorite running app because of the guided runs and programs. Coach Bennet is also the BEST!
Technical Issues Overshadowed by Features 4/5
I do often run into issues with the app (syncing to the Watch being the most frequent one), but all my issues pale in comparison to the feature list. Integration with Apple Watch activity data, mile tracking on your shoes, and the newest feature of week/month/year mile count are all great examples. Rating the effort of a run is another great idea that I wouldn’t have thought I’d use but I do. All in all I would recommend this for the majority of runners.
Training plans gone 1/5
I have loved this app for years and rely heavily on the training plans to keep me motivated and to schedule runs and build challenges for me. Now that feature is gone so I am not sure what the benefit to the app is. 😢Please add it again. 🤞
Bring back run plans! 1/5
I used to love this app! I swore by it and recommended it to friends. I trained for a half marathon and full marathon with the guided coach plans and they were phenomenal. I loved how they adapted to me weekly and provided great guidance to help me get into peak shape. As an Army officer, I’ve even used this app help my soldiers build run plans. With the recent changes, the app is basically useless. Why would I want to download a PDF “plan” when it used to on the app? If I wanted to do that I wouldn’t use NRC. Please bring back the coach. I won’t be using this anymore. Sadly.
Basic with some glitching 3/5
Polar H9 Heart Rate Monitor tracking regularly stops being recorded at random points in runs despite being connected.
Wish List 4/5
Nike needs to have an MLK badge!
If I rate give this app a better rating will it actually start to work??,
Bring back myCoach!!! 3/5
Guys, come on!!! This app is great, but really, the MyCoach portion was the BEST!! Why did you dump it? Please, bring it back!
Nike allow people cheat 1/5
Nike allow people cheat and register more than 100 miles a day every single day
Nike should eliminate this people of the rankings
Won’t start runing 4/5
In my Iphone 8 I don’t know why, when I hit start it freezes! All settings set, nav on, reset wireless, uninstall and reinstall and nothing
I enjoy running its help me a lot.
Motivating app 5/5
I love this app! Being able to review my overall progress by viewing prior runs is really motivating.
By screw cash app 1000
Ran in 30 degre weather never recorded glitches too much going to adidas
Awesome App 5/5
Love this app! It’s motivating and I love the facts that it keeps a record of all my runs so I can see my progress or be motivated to get back to it if I notice I’m slacking. Can’t run without it!
Please bring back my coach 1/5
I’ve used this app for years and now it is useless without the my coach option. No, I don’t want to print out a training plan from your website.
Removed coach on the app? 1/5
By Kayleigh acronym
I was extremely disappointed to find out when I updated the app that Nike had removed the “my coach” feature. This was the best race day training plan I had found anywhere and when I looked into this on the website I found that Nike was suggesting printing out race day training plans and tracking days with a pen and paper. This feature was the reason I used the app. I will be deleting it and moving to another app until the feature comes back. I can’t imagine why they would’ve found this to be a good idea but Nike has taken five steps back by removing it and suggesting such antiquated methods of training in its place.
Got rid of coaching plans 1/5
The best part of the app was the coaching plans. The last update randomly, without warning, got rid of them. Useless now!!
Removal of training feature 2/5
I used to use this app often but with the removal of the training feature which would map out a plan for you, I don’t see a reason to use it anymore. The singular runs are nice but without an overall plan, what is the point?
Terrible at Syncing 2/5
Tracking is good, however after your workout, syncing is completely obnoxious. Mine takes 3 or 4 times before the data actually saves, and on top of that I usually have to reenter the name of the event. Pretty annoying, when it should just work the first time. (I have an iPhone 12, so connections and processing power shouldn’t be an issue!)
Please fix the app 1/5
I started running in March and this app was 100% perfect I recommend all my friends and family to get it but with this update I absolutely hate it. I doesn’t count your miles correctly I’m going to miss achieving challenge because of that error and honestly it just doesn’t motivate me anymore. Going to have to look for a new app and it’s truly disappointing
Key features are broken and support is non-existent 2/5
October 2019 I decided to train for and run a marathon. NRC was one app that came up in several articles about how to train, so I downloaded it and got to work. That version had a few glitches with connectivity to the Apple Watch, so frequently I’d finish a run without any HR monitoring but it was still pretty useful. Fast forward to October 2020 and I’m using it again, but a recent redesign and update has made it nearly unusable for me. After a run, the app asks you to rate the difficulty by dragging a slider then tapping a check mark in the upper right corner. Unfortunately for me tapping the check mark is broken. It won’t work. I can select a difficulty level but no amount of long pressing, tapping all around and directly on the check mark works. I can force quit the app at that point and the rating seems to stick. Seems to at the time anyway.
So what’s the big deal?
One of the big selling points is that NRC training plans adapt to your fitness as you go. Part of the data, along with total mileage, pace, and HR data, is that difficulty rating. So at the end of the week, NRC asks if I want it to adapt my plan. I enthusiastically agree. Then it asks me to rate all of my runs’ difficulty levels from that week, which I’ve done already, but ok.
So I go through this silly process of assigning the number and force quitting the app to get it to apply, but then those runs I assign themselves from my training plan. And, unlike previous versions of the app, I can’t edit the run to assign it to my plan. This feature has been removed.
So I have a training history that thinks I haven’t done any of the runs I’ve done, and while this might sounds silly, seeing a 19.5 mile training run disappear from your completed runs is hugely demoralizing, and means that the app isn’t adapting to my data anymore.
I’ve found no way to report these things to the developers, because I strongly suspect that Nike largely or entirely outsources their mobile app development based on a beautiful design that doesn’t quite work and has some critical gotchas that make it unusable if anything goes wrong. These are the kinds of issues that well run, in house teams work out through testing, feedback from users, and ongoing refinements, all of which seem completely absent from this app.
It’s a pity that a redesign REMOVES the one feature that allows a fallback to assign a run to a plan. With less than a month to go till the marathon (virtual) I’ll probably stick it out with NRC but then I’m out. Garmin seems to be far more reliable and usable.
Love the guided runs, but glitchy! 4/5
I absolutely love the NRC guided runs. I went from hating running to itching to get out on the roads. But the app is super glitchy - it won’t always sync to Apple Watch when you start a run on your phone and sometimes crashes in the middle of a run. And for some guided runs it says “an error occurred” and won’t download. Overall though, it’s been a fantastic motivator during quarantine.
Has gone down hill in a terrible way 1/5
6 months ago I would have given this app 5 stars. Their programs are really great with a variety of runs so you are always challenged and never bored.
HOWEVER in the last few months I have noticed that my runs won’t sync to my plans so it looks like I never did them. I have spent hours trouble shooting and even re-adding my runs and nothing works. I’m in the middle of marathon training otherwise I would have deleted and gone to a different app.
I won’t be using this again unless they fix this. Don’t download this unless you like being frustrated.
Won’t sync to Apple Watch 2/5
Used to be 5 stars but the coach feature is gone & doesn’t sync to Apple Watch
Removing coach was a mistake 1/5
Your app is just about useless without the coach feature.
If I wanted to shop I’d go to your website, and a pen and paper can give me the details that your history gives. And at least the pen and paper wouldn’t crash halfway through my run.
Missing personalized plans 1/5
I’ve used this app to train for multiple races in the past, including my first marathon. I loved the personalized plans. Now that they’re gone, I don’t find the app anywhere near as useful

Losing faith in NRC 3/5
About six months ago I started using the NRC app again for challenges that my family creates. Starting to be just as disappointing as it used to be. The app will just randomly pause itself causing my average run time to be inaccurate. And now after a 4.5 mile run yesterday it did not sync and by the end of the day the app dropped the run. That’s a lot of sweat and miles to just not count in my runs. I love this app but I don’t want my work to be in vain. Please help.
Don’t waist your time 1/5
I loved this app because of the run coach. You use to be able to use a coach feature to train for races. I gave a really great schedule and workout calendar based that was customized to you. With the update it’s no longer offered. Such a disappointment.
Took away coaching plans 1/5
The primary reason I used this app has been taken away from us. For what reason only Nike knows because it was incredibly useful and helpful. After the last update, they made it less user friendly. Now, it’s been eliminated completely so you’re on your own. Oh but you can download their plans and figure out your pace on yourself. Thanks Nike.
Bummed about the new "update" 1/5
I've been trying to work with the new app but am really disappointed. I miss the faces and my old running plans. This app was slightly clunky to begin with but I stuck with it because of the coaching running plans. Now what is the point of this app? Please rework! I
Killer app 5/5
So much to gain from this. From self paced to a coached workout. No room for slacking off!! I highly recommend.
Helpful but glitchy 4/5
By KAL 37
This app is really helpful and has inspired me to run many, many miles but the training plans are so glitchy. It’s such a bummer to run all your runs in a week and then see them not checked off on your plan is if you didn’t work your butt off to get that run in. It’s free so I guess that’s pretty good but I really wish they could fix the training plan issues. Also a few times the app has crashed during my workout and then it either says I didn’t do it or it’s stored as two separate runs (like two 3 mile runs instead of a six mile run), which is frustrating too for keeping track of progress.
Great app 5/5
I love this app! Completely free, a good way to track your runs and compare you times
Can I have my coach back? 1/5
The best way to get me to stop using your app is to remove the adaptive training plans. I’m so disappointed by this. It was such a nice feature and I don’t know how to train for my upcoming races. I would have paid for it if you offered.
Miss the coach plans! 1/5
By Sghs she bags
I hope Nike brings back the coach training plans, that really helped me keep track of my workouts. I only used the app for that feature and now it’s gone... :(
No Training Plans 1/5
Why did they remove teaming plans from this version?
Bring Back the Built In Coach Training Plans 1/5
This app literally got me into running. What I loved most about it was that I selected a few options saying, “I want to run a half marathon by November” and BOOM - plan was set up for me. I fell off of my running game for a couple of months and I come back to revise my goals and POOF - guided plan set up is gone. What happened? Where did it go? I’d love to see it come back and be able to come back here to change my review. While I appreciate the PDFs outlining the plans to follow, having everything here in one spot was really helpful. It’s really the only thing that set this app apart from just another pace tracking app.
No more My Coach 1/5
By A bad app
They got rid of the My Coach tab which was literally the most useful feature of the app. I used the My Coach plan to train for the 2020 LA Marathon and I was about to start a plan for the 2021 marathon—only to find the My Coach tab is gone.
Needs work 2/5
Have used the app for a few years, but glitches have gotten worse, and app freezing up at beginning of workout kills my motivation. Freezing up drains 10-15% of my battery and have to reboot my phone to finally get app to unfreeze. Too many headaches. Also, you need to figure out a way to keep music on shuffle when linked to Apple Music. Going to find a better app to use. Goodbye, Nike.
Removed their best featured 1/5
By Pollo Magallanes
I used this app to get me from no running at all to running 5 miles. It was all thanks to the coach feature. However that was removed, with no replacement. There are guided runs, but no way to structure it / adapt it to my current pace. This used to be a really useful way to improve my running. Now I don’t have any use for it
Thank you Coach Bennett! 5/5
Never in my live i thoihght I would enjoy running and trust me, i have tried. But then i downloaded this app and coach Bennett guided me and taught me how to run. Now I love running and this is all because of Coach! So than you for creating this app so that I would have found Coach Bennett who is the best coach/guide and motivator!!
Also pleeeeease add search/filters into the app. I know run names but i have to scroll through every run to find the one I’m looking for. Also sometimes i want to find a run by time. The filters in Nike training are very helpful.
Great if you don’t care about it actually recording your run 1/5
I’ve used this app for years and it has only gone downhill. It randomly likes to pause or Vance your run at any point because maybe your sleeve touched the screen. I’ve been using the Apple workout app too and that never has problems. Also, forget about the double tap to stop your run actually working. Generally it flips to the next screen instead thinking your single tapped it. And the functionality to actually pick which screens are available, gone. They still have instructions posted to an option that no longer exists. So if you don’t care about calories, bpm, etc... you still have to flip through all those screens to get back to the one you prefer and your run timer has to be going while you do this so now your time is not accurate. Beyond disappointed and will be deleting the app now. Good luck to anyone still using this.
Not so smooth 2/5
By Woolly Bully
When it works well, it’s beautiful; however the app “breaks” quite often and does not work well with Apple Watches (I specifically bought the Nike edition Apple Watch). It starts a workout fine, but at the end of your run, you’ll find a crashed app with no record saved — how frustrating! At first, I thought it was a one time glitch, but it happens all the time and my husband has the same issue with his newer iPhone and Apple Watch. I’m so disappointed.
