Activities from RunKeeper to Endomondo

I've a lot of running and cycling activities on RunKeeper. Is it possible to export them and import them to Endomondo?

  • Hi again Dennis,

    I don't know much about RunKeeper, but you can easily import both gpx and tcx files into Endomondo. You'll see an import button on your workouts page. You can import multiple workouts, by the way, if RunKeeper can export several in one file. Maximum import file size is currently only 6 MB though, so you won't manage more than 3-6 per file depending on activity length and frequency of timestamps in the data files.

    I assume RunKeeper can at least export tcx or gpx files one activity at a time?

    Cheers, Alan.

    Hi Luis,

    Actually I've been told that RunKeeper can export in gpx format, but that the gpx does not include heart rate data and can only be done one activity at a time. Apparently this has been a contentious issue on the RunKeeper support forum ;-)

    Cheers, Alan.

    Oh indeed. It's under "Advanced Options" in the activity details page. Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Did u succeed to get it working ? I discovered Endomodo which looks a lot better than Runkeeper that doesn't care about its customers !
    I exported my records in Runkeeper as gps one by one from website but when I try to import them in Endomodo it tells me the GPS file is invalid :(
    Any ideas what's wrong ?

    Thanks for your help,

    Vincèn

  • I’m frustrated
    Looks like Runkeeper doesn ́t take care of their WP7 users and Endomondo doesn ́t help their ones...
    Let ́s find another solution...

    The problem is caused by RunKeeper: Their file is not really valid. But you can fix it, if you know how to use a texteditor ;)

    * Open the .gpx file which you exported from Runkeeper
    * What you see there is called XML. But RunKeeper breaks some rules: There are many <trkseg> before a closing </trkseg> (notice the slash). This is not allowed. The file must have a structure like this:


    <trkseg>
    <trkpt lat="...." lon="..."><ele>403.0</ele>...</trkpt>
    <trkpt lat="...." lon="..."><ele>403.0</ele>...</trkpt>
    <trkpt lat="...." lon="..."><ele>403.0</ele>...</trkpt>
    ...
    </trkseg>


    But the runkeeper file looks like this:


    <trkseg>
    <trkpt lat="...." lon="..."><ele>403.0</ele>...</trkpt>
    ...
    <trkpt lat="...." lon="..."><ele>403.0</ele>...</trkpt>
    <trkseg>
    <trkpt lat="...." lon="..."><ele>403.0</ele>...</trkpt>
    ...
    <trkpt lat="...." lon="..."><ele>403.0</ele>...</trkpt>
    <trkseg>
    <trkpt lat="...." lon="..."><ele>403.0</ele>...</trkpt>
    ...
    <trkpt lat="...." lon="..."><ele>403.0</ele>...</trkpt>
    </trkseg>


    * So to fix it, keep the first <trkseg> (it's around line 12). Then delete all the other <trkseg> that you find in your file. But be sure to keep the final </trkseg> which is almost at the end of the file.

    Now save the file and try to import it.

    • Some files can be imported while some cannot. I still have to dive into the xml to see what's wrong with the invalid files. I'm glad some of em work, but this makes it kind if a pain to move over to another sports tracker
    • If you have a file that works - then copy all the end "tags" (all the tags in the end of the file with a slash) and overwrite the end tags in the file that doesn't work ..

      This worked for me ..
