Interactive Route Maps and GPX File Downloads
One of the first jobs you'll need to do when planning a race is to create a route map and make it available on your own website along with a downloadable GPX file for racers' mobile devices
Forget static map images, they may look nice but they're not as helpful as an interactive version with useful distance or elevation information and they're no use at all for the growing number of racers with mobile devices looking to navigate the route or monitor and measure their performance on race day.
Avoid third party map sites they are almost certainly going to charge you or be monetised with distracting ads that will divert your participant's attention away from your race content or entice them to click away from your event landing page.
