Disclaimer: I received a Zwift RunPod at the inaugural TRE Influencer Day to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

Do you DREAD running on the treadmill? Why…? Do you get bored? Do you wish you could be outside? Do you need people to run with? If ANY of these are true for you, I may have a solution that makes those treadmill runs a little less boring…

Have you heard of Zwift? As a runner, I only knew of Zwift as a platform for cyclists…and not for runners. This is no longer the case.

Zwift Run was started only a couple months ago and is making major strides in making treadmill running more engaging and fun – yeah, FUN!

Zwift RunPod

With the new Zwift Run platform, you are basically an avatar running through a virtual world.

The platform has several avatars you can customize with different physical features (male/female, hair color, hair length, skin tone, etc.), clothing (hat, shirts, shorts, etc.), and gear. Make your avatar more like you or completely different – it’s up to you!

Once you get your Zwift RunPod (or compatible foot pods) linked to your device and your profile and avatar set up, start a run and get running!

The most fun part about this platform is the ability to run with friends (other avatars) in some pretty awesome looking places!

During the pre-TRE experience, I was a part of the BibRave Pro Zwift run at the Welcome Party. We all used previously set up avatars, but we still had the ability to run with other people from around the world! One of my Pro pals was running around the same time as I was and I had fun seeing her catch up to me and I was able to cheer her on with prompts on my screen!

The lightweight Zwift RunPod (13g) measures and broadcasts your speed, cadence and distance on the app. You can create meet-ups on the Zwift Companion App with other friends with the Zwift Run platform which is another level of accountability!

I think using the Zwift RunPod this winter is really going to add another layer of accountability and FUN to those daunting treadmill runs.

Have a Zwift RunPod? Add me as a friend and maybe we can go for a run sometime! Need a Zwift RunPod? Go ahead and order one today!
