Run the London Marathon on a treadmill with iPhone app
Fun Run Trainer recreates the course environment on your treadmill.
New iPhone app Fun Run Trainer lets you run the course of 200 of the world's most popular events, without leaving the sweat-filled environment of your local gym.
The application, which claims to be the first of its kind, uses Google Maps to produce a satellite image of the track, which can be programmed to move at the exact same speed as your treadmill settings.
It'll also send you a message to let you know when you need to up the inclination settings to ensure an accurate run of the course.
Featured events include the London and Boston Marathons meaning runners will know what to expect when they hit the course for real. Or, if you fancy a leisurely jog along the beach in some far foreign land, you can do that also.
If it's pouring with rain outside, and you can't bring yourself to head out on your regular route, you can simply programme it into the app and run it on the treadmill instead. It's also compatable with exercise bikes.
