This was a toolbar which allows athletes to upload their Garmin Forerunner data directly to the web - now the best way to do this is :-)

RunSaturday update

It's been a while since I've updated what's new on RunSaturday. And there is so much new functionality since I last posted.

Here's a brief update:
  • OpenStreetMap integration - your runs and cycles can help create the world map :)
  • Complete GPX and TCX integration - plus upload a route direct to your Garmin from our Course Mapper.
  • More linking of courses with activities - you can now map out your Nike+ runs.
  • More advances in our Polar integration - including detailed RS800CX integration with the training log.
  • Link direct to your user profile - e.g.
  • New today! Automated weather and location added when you upload
  • New today! New advanced analysis of Gradient, Cadence, Heart Rate and Pace - see what effect does Cadence have on Pace? What effect does Gradient have on Heart Rate.
RunSaturday just keeps on growing - and we have even more on the way - check it out!

Here we grow again!

Have I mentioned RunSaturday recently?


It just keeps getting better and better.

You probably remember that RunSaturday was already working with Garmin, SportTracks, Nike+, Nokia, Facebook and with some Fetch functionality.

Well since then we've added: GPX, Running Ahead and Twitter!

And integration isn't the only thing we've added:
  • we've got superb training analysis features - lots of charts and lots of options to help you understand and improve your training.
  • we've got superb run analysis features - especially heat map plotting of speed, elevation and heart rate in easy to interpret form on Google Maps.
  • we've got some innovative new social training competitions - come over and check out our challenges - right now we have teams running round the M25, running and cycling across Australia and tri-ing from London to Paris.
  • we've got the most advanced run/walk/cycle course mapping tool that I've ever seen - if you don't believe me then come over and try it out - here
  • we've got BIG plans for even more
All sound too good to be true?

Check it out for yourself - I hope you arrive in time for BIG RUN SATURDAY :)

RunSaturday's new Course/Route Mapping tool - with elevation profile!

RunSaturday just keeps getting better and better.

Check out the new coursemapper - including:
  • Draggable, editable course markers
  • Lots of icons and text elements to allow you to add extra information to your course - e.g. where toilets are, where drinks are, where busses go, where the pub is, etc.
  • Simple iframe support - you can put a complete RunSaturday course map inside an iframe on your site or blog
  • Elevation support - shows you a simple plot of the up and downs of your course.
Check out this example:

Or just go create a route yourself:

Here's an iframe example:

Google are just soooooooo good

Over on RunSaturday we've just added Google Earth support.

I'm so impressed with this plugin from Google - what they've made it's just so stunningly beautiful and it's integration within the site is pretty smooth too - you finish your run, plug in your Garmin, upload the route, then get to fly round the route in 3D.

Come take a look - e.g. come for a 3d run in Germany.

Don't stop me now

I'm having such a good time....

After a teeny weeny bit of work, I'm really pleased to announce that now has SportTracks integration.

I want to say a huge thanks to the ZoneFiveSoftware team - their product is superb and their friendly and collaborative approach is really refreshing.

If you are an existing SportTracks user and want to use the plugin, then come to RunSaturday for instructions.

If you aren't an existing SportTracks user, then go download it today!

More soon - there are some even more exciting things in the pipeline :)

Ode to Hollybar

Hi All

This may well be the last post on this blog... well, the last post about Hollybar itself anyway

I think it's time to move on from Hollybar and to concentrate on - which now has some really, really cool charting and mapping functions :)

For those of you who aren't aware, I talked with Fetch about run saturday last week and he seemed very excited about it and suggested I write a note so he could publicise it... but instead of publicising it, he seems to have spent his time since trying to copy it and today announced his plans for functionality and a prototype... much to everyone's excitement...

Maybe I should have just published the note myself?

Like I say, I guess I learned a lesson...

No sour grapes though - it's obviously a big bad world out there at the moment - obviously a time for "business is business" - so I'll respect the hard competitive approach and get on with some kicking @rse functionality instead - HTFU :)

Besides, is clearly way cool :)

After far too long... I've finally got something up and running under Firefox...

It's a bit different to before... and I kind of like it...

Thanks to those of you who've volunteered test files and/or test services. I've emailed all of you (I hope) with links to the "son of hollybar".

It's still growing and changing - sadly, there's plenty more to do!

***Update - any 405 users who want to test out the new functions please try - it appears to work***
