Since 2020, the Fitpage website has become a natural destination for fitness and nutrition, and their podcasts feature in the top regularly
Mumbai-based startup Fitpage, an endurance-first fitness company that curates deep tech-based personalized training, nutrition, and content through an integrated mobile and web platform, has acquired India’s leading race registration platform India Running (IR) for an undisclosed amount.
This acquisition is part of the startup’s plans to position itself as a leading player in the endurance fitness space. The transaction will enable Fitpage to provide registration, nutrition, and training, all together and hence provide better value to the races.
Talking about the acquisition, Vikas Singh, Founder, and CEO of fitpage said, “Most runners in India have grown visiting India Running to find running events and it currently has more than 1.1M visitors annually, looking at 1700 plus listed events. We could not be happier to build this legacy further and provide a more robust experience to them.”
Brothers Shyam and Sravan Dudaka, and Bhoopathi Rapolu founded India Running out of their passion for running.
Last year, Fitpage raised a total of $3.7 million. The fitness tech startup raised $3.5 million in a seed round from Astra Ventures at the beginning of 2021 and additionally raised $300 thousand in an angel round end of last year from Gaurav Jaitly – MD and head of equity, Goldman Sachs India, and Maj. Manoj Verma, MD of Jaguar Security.
Fitpage will target to raise a larger amount of funding in late 2022 for accelerating growth and acquiring complementary businesses in the related field.
