So how does it actually work?

Activity
Activity
Every time an AidStation user goes for a run, an ACTIVITY is either uploaded automatically through linking their Strava account or manually. The activity provides us with valuable data like distance, location etc.
Usage
Usage

We're not just interested in the activity data though - the Devices, Shoes, Apparel and Nutrition that the AidStation user enjoyed USING on the run, is what is of most value to us.

The distance, location, device used (watch) and shoe can automatically be linked to the activity via Strava. Runners are asked to submit any additional or missing items (like socks or gels) manually.

Count
Count
We then go and COUNT how many times a certain item has been used in a certain area over a certain distance. This number is called the USAGE COUNT (U-Count). If a great number of people in an area enjoy using the same shoe over and over it is safe to say that it’s a great shoe, right?
Search
Search

When you go to AidStation to SEARCH for the best shoe (for example), we'll return a simple list of items, ordered by highest to lowest U-Count (most to least used item).

You have the option to further filter this list to match your personal demographics (age, location, experience level etc.), which is stored on your profile.

Why give us all of this information?

Tokens
Tokens

You earn tokens every time you upload an activity. You use (spend) these tokens to search for great products and services in your area.

You'll also be able to redeem tokens for discounts & rewards at participating retailers at a later stage.

Anonymity
Anonymity
No one (not even us) will be able to track the information that you share with us, back to you as an individual. We will never ask you for your name, address, postcode or phone number. We do not store or share any personal information as profile demographical data is purely used for the purpose of collective intelligence.
