I have some big news today! I am proud and excited to announce that Runkeeper has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by ASICS Corporation.
When we started the company in 2008, it was with a simple mission: to get the whole world running. We saw how the rise of mobile, social networks, and personalization were starting to impact other categories, and we thought these ingredients had huge possibilities when applied towards fitness and health.
