Selecting a good course is a very important part of having a successful virtual run.
We suggest running your race day course multiple times prior to event weekend to make sure there are no dangerous road crossings. Be sure you have identified a landmark for your start and finish, as well as your mile markers. For example, when you reach the white fence, you know you have completed one mile. Using apps to record your distance can help make sure you get the most accurate time possible. Here are a few suggestions.
Strava is the top choice of many runners both casual and serious, because it shows how you compare to your friends. Strava is compatible with all the latest GPS watches making it a great choice.
RunKeeper is another great app to track your runs and helps keep you motivated. Each time you reach your goal, RunKeeper celebrates too with a trophy and confetti!
MapMyRun is great if you’re traveling and will be completing your run away from your usual routes. With MapMyRun you can map out your own course of follow a course that someone else has created.
