About RunGo

RunGo founder Craig Slagel has always had a passion for technology and became an avid runner after completing his first marathon in 2002. In 2012 Craig combined his passion for technology and running to make a mobile app to inspire and encourage people to run. Coming from a background in digital media for EA and Microsoft, he started by making a running game.

At the same time, Craig adopted his retired Guide Dog Dynasty. Some friends mentioned he should use her to guide him on his runs – as he had a reputation of getting lost. Inspired by Dynasty to develop a running guide app, Craig founded his company Leaping Coyote Interactive. With a small team of developers, he created RunGo, a running app that would help people find running routes and help direct them along the way.

Since launching the app, RunGo has worked with BC & Alberta Guide Dogs, and visually-impaired runners for feedback in creating an ‘eyes free’ navigation experience.
