This morning, I decided to try doing a run with my iPhone in Airplane mode. I did this because I wanted to see how accurate the GPS positioning will be when in that mode and whether it is a viable sports tracking tool when you are overseas (with no global roaming). I used 4 running apps and compared how they fair when recording a run without cellular connectivity.

RunKeeper and Under Armour teamed up to bring a story on what it means to be fast.

The Sydney Morning Herald is just round the corner (May 19th 2013) but this year there is a new event available.
Previously the event has been a half marathon only event. It’s actually the only half marathon only event which I know of. All the other events, Sydney Running Festival, Gold Coast Marathon, Melbourne Marathon and Canberra Marathon all have other running distances available. (10km, half marathon and marathon). This year, the organisers of the event are introducing a relay half marathon.
The nation’s most bizarre race, the Mud Run has fast become Australia’s biggest mud-fest offering thousands of runners and thrill-seekers a unique fun-run experience.
