SAN DIEGO, Calif. – February 4, 2014ACTIVE Network ®, the leader in cloud-based Activity and Participant Management™ solutions, today announced the release of Half Marathon, a new Apple iOS App, designed with the runner in mind. Half Marathon is the only app of its kind that fully customizes 12-week training plans to fit the needs of runners and offers the ability to toggle between stats during workouts to show distance, pace, time and calories.

Additional Half Marathon features include:
• Beginning and advanced training plans designed by ACTIVE trainers
• Treadmill support to allow the manual entry of workouts
• See overall stats and progress throughout plan
• Before and after photos

"Many people think that running a half marathon is out of their reach, but getting to that fantastic moment when you're at the starting line —it's actually completely doable," said Bob Bennett, Vice President "That's what ACTIVE is all about, getting more people to that inspiring moment, and is another way we aim to do that.”

ACTIVE Network ® also released brand new updates for its award-winning app, Couch-to-5K®. Couch-to-5K® has helped thousands of runners train and finish their first 5K (3.1 mile) race.

New features include:
• Sleek new design
• “Buddies” feature allows users to search for friends, view workouts, and motivate each other
• Data Sync - saves and retrieves workouts in the cloud so past work out details are never lost

“I used ACTIVE’s C25K and 10K app. They are both perfect to make me get stronger and is my next aim in exercise,” said Jenkins S., customer advocate.

The iOS7 update for Couch-to-5K® and Half Marathon are both available for download and purchase at the iPhone App store. Couch-to-5K® is available for $1.99. Half Marathon is on sale for an introductory price of $.99 for a limited time and will then be available for $9.99.
