Running Routes

I have posted maps of some of the routes that we run in the Starkville Area. These maps were created at Mapmyrun.com. This site appears to be fairly accurate for mapping running routes. I have compared it to some known courses and some loops that I measured with wheel and found these maps to be more accurate than any GPS watch I have used. Typically, the GPS watches showed the courses as being shorter. I will say that the Garmin Forerunner that I used to have, was fairly close.
