Any suggestions for apps that can plan running routes ?
I use Footpath. My needs are basic, and I haven’t compared it to anything else.
I’m not sure if you can create actual routes in app, its been awhile since I’ve used it, but I believe Strava can do this.
Someone I follow did a NYC to Chicago cycling trip and he had used Strava to map out a route based on its heat maps.
Second the endorsement for Footpath. I too have simple needs. I use it for walking rather than running but I imagine the uses would be the same.
I use Mapometer website, its free and fairly accurate. https://ca.mapometer.com/
