Cool Website: America's Running Routes

Cool Website: America's Running Routes

I am always on the hunt for a new running routes and I like checking out other runners routes. Looks like sugar user UrbanBohemian shares this interest too. She just told me about Americas Running Routes (ARR) on the U.S.A. Track and Field website. It is really cool.

The site maps your run using Google Maps and calculates the distance for you. It is similar to the Map My Run website, but I found the search function on ARR a little easier to use. Just enter your city and and a listing comes up of all the routes other runners in your area have posted. They are organized by distance so you can easily find a 3 mile run near by. Plus posted routes include details like: hills, flat, paved path, all road, loop run or point to point. I like to know what I am getting into when I head out to pound the pavement.

You too can enter your own running routes to share. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and get running.

you might be interested in this then ... http://www.nike.com/nikeplus/?locale=en_us&l=events,womens_marathon it's a virtual half marathon to coincide with the SF half marathon in october. You pick the running/walking route, record your run using nike+, then upload your results to their website to "finish" the race. There's a registration fee, but all those that complete it get goodies (tiffany keychain and tshirt).
