Most Plans are too Hard

Go from Zero to 25-Minutes Runs Straight in 12-Weeks

The world is full of running plans and guides that are just “too hard” and aren't designed with beginners in mind.

Our 12-week plan was built to help beginners, not drag them down.

Great app, exceptional customer service!
This app is worth it for the customer service alone. But it is also a great app! Day one was accessible to me as a complete beginner. It was still a challenge for someone completely out of shape, but doable. I have tried other apps that were too hard, especially when running outdoors. I like that this app has the option for treadmill or outdoor running. I also love being able to listen to my own music while still being able to hear the prompts. My husband and I are going through the program together and are loving it so far. If you have any questions or issues, customer service is the absolute best! I highly recommend this app!

Excellent program and app
I was a new runner and recently finished the N2R program. I really like how the program is set up. It focuses more on time than on distance, which is great for getting you used to being on your feet! The strength exercises really do help and should not be skipped. I could tell a difference in my runs once I started consistently doing the strength exercises. The customer service is also top notch. I started program before I got my Apple Watch, and I was having trouble getting my routes to show up. I emailed support, and by the next afternoon after several emails, Jeff had me back up and “running!” (It was my user error, but he very patiently and kindly walked me through the steps to take to fix it!). You will not be disappointed!!!! Go for it!!!

Terrific app
After battling an injury, I was looking for a way to get back to running. None to Run is a smart, safe way to build strength and endurance over the 12-week program. The initial focus on running for time instead of distance gave me the permission I needed to start slow, focus on each workout, and build up to running for a full 25 minutes—something I hadn’t done in a long time. The compatibility with my Apple Watch is great. It kept me on track and motivated while listening to my favorite playlists. I recommend this to anyone who is new to running, looking to get back to running, or a seasoned runner who appreciates the functionality of audio prompts during your workout.

Start Running!!!
The None 2 Run app is amazing! I used another popular program 10 years ago that worked me up to running a 5K but afterwards when I continued to make running a part of regular exercise I was plagued with injuries. So I came to the conclusion I was not a runner. So this past year I came across the N2R program and decided to give it a try. It’s great because it is designed to get you running at a pace that is comfortable for you. When used with your phone and/ or your watch it gives you prompts of when to walk and when to run and also an encouraging phrase at the end. The end goal is to be able to run for 25 minutes straight regardless of distance. You can do this at your own pace and even repeat weeks if you need to. There is also a social media group with people going through the same program as you for support and encouragement. I am now slowly working through the N2R 5K program.

Absolutely LOVE this program!!!!!
I’m a brand new runner, 17 yo, and have always wanted to be able to run but in the past I’ve done too much too fast and got injured. This program is great for beginning runners because it helps you pace yourself, and the podcasts are super helpful and actually worth your time!! With the podcasts I’ve learned to be patient with myself and not give myself too high expectations, I’ve learned what type of pain is normal/okay and what pain to watch out for. Also the first runs are so fun that I felt amazing afterwards. This has helped me a lot during quarantine because running is boosting my mood and my mental health, and the program works so well that I haven’t gotten injured and stuck inside! And the program is free!!!! It doesn’t ask you to upgrade and pay after the first couple runs!! Which gets sooo annoying. It gives you the entire 12 wk program for free right off the bat so you know what to expect which I love. Thank you for sharing this program!!

Excellent program and App!
I have been wanting to get back into running for a long time. This program and app are perfect to work back up mileage and endurance. So much better than previous programs I’ve tried. Easy to get into and love the layout of the app with the set workouts for each week! The app is great works well with my audiobooks playing while still giving me the walk run prompts. Both Mark the creator and Jeff the developer were very quick to answer questions I had when I couldn’t get something on my Apple Watch to work right. Problem was user error and they figured it out within an hour and late at night. Thanks guys for your quick response and help. Look forward to continuing to build on my runs. The price is well worth the setup within the app for intervals, provides motivation to click off each workout and tracks everything in one place vs multiple apps to see progress following the program. Worth every penny!

Why none to run Works:


We focus on time,
not distance

How long and not how far you run is key to developing your fitness, so we make sure to grow your running without injury and loss of motivation... slowly.



None to Run starts slow by design. Manageable progressions build the confidence and consistency needed to make running an enjoyable habit. Look forward to your next run instead of dreading it.


build consistency & confidence

Good runners are strong and resilient. We provide short, simple strength and mobility routines to help you prevent common running injuries, improve your form and make running feel easier.

A Running App for Real People

In order to become a runner, you don't need much in order to become successful: a plan, an encouraging community and consistency. With N2R, you can have them all.

Works Around your Schedule

Time is hard to come by. Kids, work, and other commitments can get in the way. You need a plan that's easy to follow and can work around you, not the other way around.

Break down the lies you tell yourself

You look "weird" when you run. You’re “not” a runner. You’re too “slow” or too "Old." We're here to tell you right here, right now, that you’re wrong. You only *think* these things because it's new and you feel uncomfortable. That'll change with consistency and time. You are a runner!

Exercise Smarter, not harder

It may have been hard previously, but it doesn't have to be – now, you'll be given the tools and the knowledge to succeed. We’re doing things differently in order to see different results.

N2R Eases you in

Running when you aren't ready or without the proper training can hurt, leaving you with nagging injuries that never seem to clear up. We ease you in, giving you the strength and conditioning you need to make sure your running doesn't come with pain.

Tina Watson
When I came back to running again, I decided that I would try the Couch to 5k to get my fitness back....I didn't get on with that AT ALL, I found it really tough. I looked through the internet and came across None2Run and there was a PDF which I printed out and followed. 
Mary Owens
As a person that is big on diversity, I love that the program is for everyone - whether you’re new to running or an experienced runner.
Caron Forman
I am so grateful for you, Mark, and this app and for the None to Run community for their constant encouragement. Although we all have never met and live in different parts of the world, everyone is so positive and inspiring.
Emily Shuman
Just do the run, make time to love yourself, and focus on how it makes you feel mentally rather than how things look on a scale.
Kat Andrew
In 2019 a friend invited me to participate in a 5k race. I immediately said sure.....then realized I don't run. Another friend, Stephanie, recommended N2R and the program. I started the 12-week plan and fell in love immediately.
Clara Baldwin
There will be some good, bad, and the ugly ones but never regret it! They all count, they all shape you as a runner.
Trine Larsen
In 10 months I have gone from running for 30 seconds to running for more than 50 minutes without stopping.
