Exporting your runs data from Nike+

Feb. 27, 2015

I'm putting the finishing touches on an iPhone app version of this site; if you're interesting in helping out with the beta test, let me know!

Follow me (@stuehler) on Twitter for status updates and new feature announcements.

I'm a huge fan of Nike+. Recently, however, I've been having some trouble - the iPhone app crashes a little too frequently, a few of my runs wouldn't upload, and my stats don't look quite right.

So, inspired by EagerFeet, I decided to see if I could create a little utility to download my run data from Nike+, so that I could try out some of the other GPS-based run trackers like RunKeeper or Strava.

After a bit of trial and error, I was able to extract all of my runs, including GPS and heartrate data, and save them as GPX-formatted files that can be imported into most of the other sites.

A few important disclaimers…

If the download works, the app will prompt you to save a .zip file containing a series of GPX-formatted files, one for each of the runs you select. Or, you can send your runs directly to Strava, RunKeeper, or MapMyRun, without having to download them first.

If it doesn't work, send me an email or tweet. And feel free to share your suggestions for improvement.

Good luck, and happy running!

Try it!
