Runners want to practice their activity without the fear of getting lost, and with the ability to actively explore unknown territories. We describe the design and evaluation of a system that supports exploratory running through flexible tours that link the best runnable zones in a neighbourhood. Our system proposes such running tours and provides adaptive navigation support enabling runners to follow these tours without continually getting disruptive directions. We conducted a survey to understand whether our flexible tour concept corresponds to runners’ habits and needs. The results confirmed that runners want to explore unknown areas but lack appropriate support to do so. We have implemented and tested a prototype of our concept with runners that validated the usefulness of our system, illustrating the potential of flexible tours and the adaptive navigation support. We discuss the technical implementation of our prototype, detailed findings from our study and future research opportunities.
