Customer Reviews

"Last winter you created 6 routes in iRunMaps for the Detroit Marathon for me. The routes were in 5 miles segments with the last being 6.2 miles. Due to the harsh winters in Michigan, I used these routes on my NordicTrack treadmill to prepare for the race. With iRunMaps there were no terrain surprises during the race this past Sunday. It was also fun to watch the maps come to “life” during the race. With the help of iRunMaps I was ready for my first Marathon not only physically but also mentally. I am happy to be able to say I completed the Detroit Marathon in 4 hours 18 minutes. I think this is a big accomplishment since I could not even run a mile 18 months ago. Next year I am thinking about running the Chicago and using the iRunMaps again for the winter months training. Thanks for the service you provide with iRunMaps. It was a huge help for me during my first marathon this past Sunday! "

"I like the fact that you have short distances for walkers as well as longer distances. The various lengths and locations of your maps makes the membership price well worth the investment."

"Absolutely fantastic! Originally I created my own maps and thought I was doing a really good job. But just like the workout I created and ran today some street view images would be missing for about a mile. That is not the case with map workouts from iRunMaps.com and there are so many to choose from!"

"I have been using your maps for almost 2 years. The maps are a fantastic resource, saving me the time of looking for interesting locations, determining that they have Streetview, and then making the maps by trial and error. The extra motivation I get to exercise from the maps is more than worth the price."

How to tell where Google has Street View

iFit interfaceWe understand. It's no fun working out on iFit without street view. But how do you know if they area you're mapping has street view or not. There are several ways for you to check, but we'll just be showing you how to check through iFit.

Login to iFit.com from your laptop or desktop. When you create a map you'll go to:

  1. Create > Map Based Workout
  2. Give it a name, select run or cycle
  3. On the next screen enter the location or city name you want to map
  4. Switch the "Street View Availability" button to ON. All the blue lines are where Google has captured Street View.

Now zoom in or out and draw along the blue lines shown on the map. These blue lines are where Google has captured street view.

What is iRunMaps?

search-featureWe are a community based website that is run by an iFit user like you! We've loved creating unique and off-the-beaten-path maps for since 2011. Years ago, we saw the need for an quick and easy way to locate maps based on distance, location and incline. Our site is a search engine format that allows you to select numerous parameters and search for the exact map you want to workout to! You can even search for the exact distance!

Besides our dynamic search feature, we also have the following:

  • Workout of the Week

  • Location Listing Search
  • Collections of Maps (le Tour de France, 7 Wonders of the World, Castles, Grand Canyon, Color Run, Rock N Roll Marathon, and many more!)
  • Ability to email us if you have any map requests! If it has street view, we'll most likely map it for you
  • New maps weekly
  • Informational blogs on how to use your iFit machine and get the most out of it's features
