The purpose of Xrundan

Xrundan collaborates with various municipalities, associations and other organizations that buy Xrundan's "Quiz Walk / Tipspromenad" service and facilities. This is why a municipality's or association's logo is often visible when choosing which round you want to go.

 Xrundan's purpose is to give people a fun activity that gets them out and exercising, while engaging their brain via quizzes.

Another purpose is as a platform for conveying events or other information from the municipality, association or organization via special extra quizzes. Examples of special quizzes can be "Garbage Picker Week in the municipality", "Global goals 2030" or "Get to know your municipality" quiz.



Rowing Nation AB is the company behind the Xrundan app which is used as a fun activity to get people out and exercise while answering questions by scanning QR codes or by entering a geofenced area. Our goal is to make this app as accessible as possible for all.

These are the steps we¬īve taken so far to make it more accessible.
