Help Good app for mapping my running?


Android Enthusiast
Nov 6, 2009
Ok so here's the deal guys and gals, I am trying to have my phone assist me with my running. There are plenty of apps that will track my run via gps if I bring my phone on the run with me, but I don't wanna do that.

I want to be able to map a course out, enter how long it took me, save the map and even share it with friends. Ideally the app would have the gps running features I mentioned above just on case I ever do start bringing my phone with me.

Here is an example of what I mean in website form (unfortunately they make a sweet app for the iphone but their android version is pretty awful right now.
MapMyRun.com -
my tracks... super reliable, great data, doesn't eat your battery, you can view tracks online, data, progress, ect... and best of all it's made by google

Again, I appreciate the suggestion but I already tried that one out. I'm sure it does everything you say, but the functionality that I need is to map out a running course ahead of time, and get all the stats on it. I'll refer you to mapmyrun.com for an example of what I want in app form.

My Tracks is just another app that records your course as you run with your phone. I don't want my phone with me, but I do want it to tell me where I can run from any given destination I decide to start from.
