To help prepare for Brett’s Run, here are some helpful internet tools, which can also make it more fun getting in shape, or just getting out there and enjoying the weather with your friends and family, which is what Brett’s Run is all about anyway!
Gmaps Pedometer lets you create running, walking and biking routes, creates maps, and calculates the distances, inserts mileposts, and much, much more. It is the program we used to create the map on this page http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/
OpenStreetMap- A new feature included in Gmaps Pedometer (above link) is OpenStreetMap. http://www.openstreetmap.org/ This is a free editable map of the whole world. It is made by people like you.OpenStreetMap allows you to view, edit and use geographical data in a collaborative way from anywhere on Earth.
