The Runner’s Resource was created for runners of all ages and abilities, especially high school athletes, who are looking for advice and information on improving their times. As a former high school, former college, and now post-college runner, I have learned a lot about running over the years and had some pretty good success. I was fortunate enough to be able to run the following times:
Although I’m not competing seriously anymore, I still enjoy running and have a lot of fun helping others reach their time goals. Therefore, I decided that it would be cool to share some of what I know on a web site. The site actually started in 1998, but I got this domain name and updated everything in 2006.
I hope that you enjoy The Runner’s Resource and find it informative. Please sign my guestbook and feel free to send me e-mail. I really appreciate any feedback (both positive and negative). Also, if you do enjoy the site, please consider taking a look at the advertisers of The Runner’s Resource. Their support makes this site possible.
Our membership requirements are very simple: A heartbeat and a sunny disposition will usually do it. There is no fee to join and no restrictions other than we try to keep our group as adult-only (18-plus). Our runs are casual, relaxed and usually include some excellent conversations (except on hills).
A number of runners have expressed an interest in joining us on our Sunday runs, but hesitate to because they feel they will not be able to keep up or might slow the rest of the group down (Please, we are not as great as we think we are!). If you are capable of running for about 60 minutes you will have no problem joining this group. We wish to encourage as many local runners as possible to join us by:
Encouraging multiple pace groups. Usually there is at least one other runner at, near, or willing to run, your pace. We never leave a runner behind. (Sort of like the Marines, but without weapons.)
Plan our routes as out-and-back courses. You have the option of turning around at a pre-determined time so that everybody will finish at roughly the same time.
Welcome to the “Inside IAAF” section of the official IAAF web site.
Together with my colleagues on the Council, we will build on the legacy left us by Primo Nebiolo and, as a team, strive to ensure that Athletics continues to play its leading role among the sports of the world, for the greater benefit of all who practice it as athletes or enjoy it as fans and enthusiasts.
It is a demanding task, but one that we undertake with determination and enthusiasm, in the knowledge that our efforts will benefit millions of youngsters around the world and encourage them to live healthier lives and compete in a true spirit of fair play and equality.
“I don’t believe anyone has done more for the sport of recreational running than John Stanton and the Running Room. The Running Room walking and running programs and clinics are highly-respected across North America.”
Mission: To produce innovative, informative products in all areas of physical activity that help people worldwide lead healthier, more active lives.
The greatest challenge facing Human Kinetics is to convert all information about physical activity into knowledge--information that people can use to make a positive difference in their lives.

Simply put, it’s a running route planner and a distance/speed calculator. I’ve been using it to set up a route before I grab my running shoes.
How does it work?
Click on the map to set a starting point. Then keep clicking from point to point to draw a route. Click on any of the markers for your route and see how far this point is from the start and what the estimated time would be for a given speed.
Building a running community
You can save your maps by clicking on any of your markers and hit “Save Your Route” to add it to the database. Next time you or anyone else looking in your neighborhood is looking for a route, they will see your pin.
