Want to go on a virtual run from John O'Groats to Lands End. So the idea would be that I could see where I had got to on a map ie at the end of a 30 mile week would like to know where I had got to any ideas how I could do this software etc?
Will do J1M used to live in Uxbridge now in Scotland
I guess it depends on how much you want to automate the process. If you want to just be able to type into a box that you've run 30 miles and get it to show you where you are, you're going to probably need some coding skills. If you don't mind putting in some manual work then you could use a website like http://www.bikehike.co.uk/mapview.php when you can just mouse click a route in on a weekly basis till you've covered the 30 miles distance, see where that's got you and use it as the starting point for next week.
Mapmyrun lets you plot a route on a map.
I think doing the whole thing in one map might crash the system (the longer the route, the slower it gets), but you could certainly do thirty miles at a time, or do it in blocks of four weeks, say.
I just use Google Maps and an excell spread sheet - and roughly work out where I am each night based on each days mileage.
So far over the past 12 months I have run between Clacton and John O'Groats and am now about 200 miles away from Gdansk on my run from Clacton.
