For new RUNNERS!

I actually found a really good way of measuring accurately your route. All you need to do is go onto google maps.

Google maps
Map Labs (bottom left)
Enable Distance Measurement Tool
Save changes.

You can now plot in the minutest details your exact route and it will tell you how far it is in pretty much any unit of distance you can imagine.

Map My Run does a similar thing, even has an app for your phone free, to map your route while you are actually doing it, marvellous thing technology.

Fantastic. Just used it to prove to mrs1gm that my route to walk the dog is further than hers despite furious arguments to such. now should I have done that or not. Mmm....

Thats really cool. I never knew of those sites. Does those applications let you map or measure the distance through bitsy roads and paths? I tried a lot with Google map which only lets you do it through proper roads and thats when I found this. :D

Map my run uses the GPS in your phone to map your route so doesn't matter if you run trails, roads or mixture.

Try that RealBomb. It lets you measure anywhere on the map not just roads. I used it to measure around my lake and through woods and stuff. The benefit of using google maps is that you can even do it while on satellite mode which helps you get the most accurate reading because you can physically see the dirt track that doesn't show up on a normal map etc.

What's wrong with a 25 thou map and a bit of cotton? Works for me.

Map my run is a pretty good app, only problem I've found is that sometimes the signal goes a bit wonky and has you off your actual route. One of my runs had me doing a good impression of moses running a mile over water.

Well, you are a duck. What's the problem?
