I'm after a garmin GPX file for the route.  Has anyone run this in the past with a garmin on that could save their GPX route and email me....

Many thanks in advance.

PSC I think* the course changes slightly every year so I don't think a garmin route would do you any good. I wouldn't worry if it's the nav you're concerned about, it really is fairly easy to follow LDWA directions and besides unless you're a complete racing snake there's usually someone to follow

    * I know it's hard to believe but it's true

cheers Lirish... I've already checked the route cards and there is hardly any diference to last year.  I'm more after it to play with a new toy.  well maybe not so new - I got an Garmin Oregon for Chrimbo and thought it would be fun to follow the route on the screen.

One option is to go to http://www.bikehike.co.uk/mapview.php, plot your course from the route card and then download it to the gps.
It's a great site to use as you can see the satellite and OS maps side by side, which is handy for clarifying stuff.

I would agree with Ian M and use bikehike. I have the middle section of the 30m (Tilford to Moat CP) on Runmeter but not sure how to download as its a new toy. Probably quicker to do whole thing via bikehike.

Course has changed slightly from 2 years ago it seems but only slightly. Road map is very good. Only tricky sections are coming off Punchbowl and around Rodsall.

Enjoy the run!!
