Of course, I need a phone to contact my family especially in times of emergency. When you run outdoors, you’ll never know when you’re going to need your phone.

My iPhone also serves as a running tracker via the Runkeeper or the Nike+ app. But lately, I’m using my Garmin Forerunner 10 since running those apps drain my iPhone’s battery.

Top Three iPhone Running Apps

Since I started running, I always bring along my iPhone 5 with me. Be it during a fun run, marathon or training. Thanks to the GPS feature of the iPhone 5, you can skip those GPS watches and devices to measure your run distance, run speed, run pace and even map your race route.

Of course, you can’t use the iPhone alone to do these tasks. You have to install running iPhone apps. Thankfully, the iTunes App Store have several useful iPhone running apps. Here are the top three iPhone running apps that I’ve used so far.
