I did post something similar on another forum but thought to maximise my chance of finding fellow runners from my neck of the woods, I'd post here too.
I have only recently started using strava, previously I used mapmytracks, and strava does everything the former did, yet adds a fantastic competitive aspect (I'm sure you know how it works)
The only problem is, people have to add 'segments' and run them for me to try and beat etc and no-one from wakefield/barnsley area seems to have done so.
I am just writing this to see if anyone from this area fancies downloading this app and trying it out, it would certinaly spur me on!!!
I use Starva and many colleagues do too but we're down in Luton!
I have tried to look for runs on Strava while I'm away on business but not enough people are using it yet. It is building up though. Some are put off by having thier times, pace etc available for all to see but I think it's great. Four of us can do the same run at different times and compare details.
The more we talk about it the more people will use it. I'm in my fifties so not fast but I don't mind sharing my times. Even the disastrous Milton Keynes 1/2 marathon (2hr 10Mins) time went on Strava!
I currently use mapmyrun but it doesn't see to be the most accurate - how does everyone find Strava?
