RunningMap.com is a website for runners, cyclists, hikers or outdoor enthusiasts who want to plan, save and share their routes. Since 2003 Runningmap has been helping runners determine the distance of their routes in a way that was not previously possible.
This video is a 10 minute introduction to the basic features of the RunningMap application.
Getting started with RunningMap.com is easy! Go to the RunningMap application and enter your address or city in the top left address field. Click the GO button (green button with an arrow on it) and your a map of your area will load. If it fails to load the correct map, try a different or more specific version of your address and try again. (Note: not all areas of the world are not available, yet).
Once your map is loaded, you can navigate to your specific area by clicking and dragging the map itself. Drag greater distances by zooming out using the Zoom Slider on the top right area of the map. Or, zoom closer to see better detail.
To start plotting your route just start clicking on the map along your route. If you make a mistake, click and drag the point you created or click the UNDO button. It’s that easy!
You can describe your route by adding “point of interest” markers or photos. Click the Point of Interest button and you cursor will turn into a push pin and then click somewhere on the map.
You can save your routes and get back a PERMALINK id that you can blog or email to a friend. If you are a registered user and logged in, you have the option of making your route public or private.
