Map your Running, Walking, and Cycling Routes
stevechapal wrote:I mapped my first running route of about 3.5 miles in my north Tampa neighborhood. The elevation chart seems accurate except at about the 1.1 mile point, where it shows a sharp 20 foot elevation gain from 40 feet to 60 feet gain and then back down, all within about a 0.1 mile distance. The course is basically flat all the way around and there is nothing noticeable at the 1.1 mile mark. Any idea what would cause that spike?
