MapMyRun’s ‘The Running Stories You Loved in 2017’

2017 was a fantastic year for running. Because of this, MapMyRun has recently published a blog highlighting some of 2017’s greatest running stories.

Here is an excerpt:

“Running can be a love or hate experience — even if you call yourself a runner. As far as workouts go, it’s one of the simplest ways to train, so long as you have a good pair of running shoes. Looking back on the year, we sifted through the articles we published on the subject and selected the ones that resonated the most with you.”

Challenge Yourself in 2018

MapMyRun is holding a new challenge called the “You Vs. The Year 2018.” Like most other MapMyRun challenges, You Vs. The Year has you competing against other users to reach 1018KM as quickly as possible. Winners can earn a brand new pair of HOVRs, the industry’s most anticipated connected shoe from Under Armour, and a variety of other gear.
