Embarc is a running technology company with an all-Duke founding team. We analyze a runner’s indicated training preferences, goals, and upcoming races to provide them with automatically generated running routes in their surrounding area. This precise training helps runners reach peak potential on race day—whether that comes in the form of an actual race or the solo pursuit of a training goal—regardless of where they’re located. At Embarc, we believe that face time translates into better relationships, so while we’ll be remote all summer, we’ll likely have a few calls each week to talk progress, running, and whatever else comes to mind!
