Running one of the “Big 10” is a dream for every runner – especially the Boston Marathon, which is widely regarded as the most elite marathon in the world. So, you’ve set your goal to participate in one of those big ones. You have started training for them, joined a running group, changed your diet, got a GPS watch, and post your weekly mileage updates on Facebook or Twitter.
But, how are you really trending to perform in the main event? This is where Marathon Simulator comes in:
- Download Stridalyzer app if you don’t already have it, from App Store or Play Store.
- Choose which marathon you want to simulate (Boston, Berlin or Chicago currently available; more to be available soon)
- Just do your long run.
- As you run, the App uses your Real-Time distance & pace information, and computes how you would have performed in the selected event!
(No, we cannot replicate the terrain, the weather and the thousands of people of the event, but you’ll get real-time insights into how you are performing!)
Plan out and test various strategies and figure out which ones work best – when should you coast, when should you start ramping up to your target pace, etc. Also coming soon – compare your race strategies to the elites as well as the average runners, and learn from what the elites are doing for the event!
Marathon Simulator is available for free with Stridalyzer app till August 1. Post August 1st, it’ll be available as a paid upgrade.

Stridalyzer Trainer’s Toolkit enables coaches, Sports physiotherapists and doctors to help their clients in a much more intelligent way than by just using a short-duration gait-analysis in their clinic on a treadmill. Most running form problems show up much later in a person’s run when fatigue starts setting in. With Stridalyzer Smart Insoles constantly monitoring the runner’s form and uploading the data to the cloud for review, trainers and caregivers now have a much more powerful set of tools to diagnose what kind of running form issues the runner might be getting into and how it would affect the runner in the future.
Using the “Action Replay” feature on Trainer’s Toolkit (available through http://stridalyzer.retisense.com), caregivers can view down-to-the-minute stress-distribution on feet and knees, and pin-point the form-related lapses as well as when and why they occur.
This then helps the trainer recommend targeted solutions, like strengthening & flexibility exercises.

“For several reasons, be it injuries or even minor running form issues, problems with the big toe can cause a chain reaction of problems on up the leg—from plantar fasciitis to Achilles problems to calf strains and more.” writes Ryan Wood of Competitor.com.
