If any competitor for any of our races is willing to provide their route file (.gpx or .gtc) for public display on our website in use with Quick Route, please email your data to jordan.laughlin [at] gmail [dot] com.

Please include your name, and course with your data.

Are you going to put the courses up on RouteGadget as well?

Yes we will.

OK, to step up to the next level of meet is a bit of a drag to scan my maps for playing with my GPS data. How about the clubs start posting the .jpg of each course after the event? Easy to do from the usual course setting software.

Yes, well, a girl (old lady) can dream, can't she?! :)

I have JPGs of my courses and I can make all the others. Do you want me to send all of these?

:) Man! What service! Actually, I have already scanned my maps, and I did not mangle my maps as much as I usually do, so I can read them for a change... But, thanks. More a thought for the future, not just your meet, but other meets.

I personally made the JPGs for QuickRoute use.

Interesting that my Sprint tracks were very poor - some interruptions, as well as tracks showing that I spent a good bit of time in the river.

I hate it when that happens! (spending time in the river)...actually, when we were test-running courses this winter, I had a few moments of nearly slipping off the HUGE sheets of ice on the lower trail and into the river. I am very grateful for the beautiful weather.

Incidentally, we failed to mention in the Meet Notes that you were all running along Flirtation (Flirtie) Walk, which is where cadets can go with their significant others to enjoy some peace and quiet and not have people commenting about PDA in uniform...normally, no one goes down there without a cadet escort!

There's even the "Kissing Rock," where legend has it that if a date fails to kiss a cadet, the entire fortress would crumble into the Hudson...

That is the what happens when we just run on the trails there. I think it is something with the map in that area.
