More great marathon tracking apps are being discovered by the day! This suggestion comes from our friend, Gaynor, on Twitter. Thanks Gaynor!
MyWhereAbouts is a new GPS tracking app that automatically updates your Facebook and Twitter profiles with your progress. The great thing about this app is that, not only does it tell your friends and family how well you’re doing and where you are, it will even include a link to your personal charity donation page on every Tweet or Post … just in case they need a reminder!
Easy to set up and simple to tailor, MyWhereAbouts updates can be sent either at specific times or distances. MyWhereAbouts automatically posts and tweets to Facebook and Twitter giving spectators at the event real time updates at specified intervals on your pace, distance and most importantly your location. Marathon supporters can track you on maps and confidently move around the course ahead of you to be in the right place at the right time to cheer you on! This marathon tracker app is great for reuniting runners and supporters at the end of the race – your friends will know how to quickly find you to congratulate you!
MyWhereAbouts is available for iPhone and Android.
Please remember continued use of GPS services on your phone may drastically reduce your phone’s battery life.
