About Us

RunBuddy was created and is currently operated by husband & wife team, Ruthie and Scott Sutter.

By trade, Ruthie is an artist and Scott is in the insurance industry. Both enjoy an active lifestyle with their two children and dogs in their hometown of Somers, Connecticut.

The idea for RunBuddy was born while Ruthie was trail running by herself. This was at a time when there were several news stories of women being attacked while out for a run. She thought;

“If I could send out an immediate message that I was in trouble or worried, I would feel safer heading out for a run by myself.”

The idea for the RunBuddy smartphone app began to take shape. When she returned from her run, she explained her idea to Scott – who immediately set off to bring it to life.

We hope RunBuddy brings peace of mind to loved ones and provides people with a safer experience during their walk, run, or ride.
