About Walk the Distance

Use your daily walking/running distance recorded from the Google Fit app towards the Appalachian Trail. See other users completing the same route, and don't let them pass you!

WalkTheDistance uses your walking/running distance (daily steps) tracked automatically in the Google Fit app and puts that data to good use, by showing you how far you would be if you were walking the Appalachian Trail, Boston Marathon, or other featured routes in cities and national parks around the world.

The Appalachian Trail is really long. So we added checkpoints along the way to help you stay motivated. For the Appalachian trail, checkpoints are shelters where you can "stay the night", along with some points that provide a good view. Checkpoints vary by walk, and of course you cannot unlock checkpoints until you reach them!

Walk with other users! Walk with everyone, or just walk with your friends. You can easily add friends to walk with you on your walk. Get notified when someone passes you. Stay motivated and don't let them beat you!

This app is "activate it and leave it". It uses virtually no power while in the background. It pulls your walking/running distance from the Google Fit app once every hour in the background, or every time you open the app. When you reach checkpoints or get passed by friends, you will get notifications on your phone letting you know.

Free walks in each category (Appalachian Trail, Marathons, Cities, National Parks), then other walks are available for purchase for $0.99 (or equivalent local currency).

Feedback welcome! This app was built based on feedback from users. There is an "email me" link under settings. We would love to hear what routes you want added and what features you'd like to see.
