Route Maps
Maps are available for all distances on RunGo. RunGo is a mobile app that offers runners the opportunity to be hands-free and paper-free while on a training run. Use your earbuds or phone to hear the directions. The turn-by-turn cues can also be displayed on Apple Watches so that no sound is required. No data is needed if you download the route ahead of time. RunGo tracks distance and pace, but we encourage the use of a running watch or another running app to track this data.
