There are a huge number of route planning programs and web sites to choose from when it comes to working how to get from A to B by car, but TrailRunner is a little different in that it has been designed specifically with exercise and sports enthusiasts in mind.

The program enables runners, skater, cyclists and hikers to plan a route either between two specific points or to cover a particular distance and the route can then be exported to your iPod or iPhone to take out with you. You can configure checkpoints along your route which you can use to check your pace.

iPhone users can take advantage of built in GPS to analyse their route and routes can be shared online with others. With support for Nike+ Sportband and iPod Sport Kit as well as heart rate monitors, the program makes it easy to monitor your progress through your exercise regime.

A diary option is available so you can keep a record of your workouts and the exercise planner can be used to plan a series of routes of increasing difficulty to help increase your endurance.
 

Verdict

TrailRunner is a great application for anyone who likes to hit the trail, simultaneously making it easy to monitor your performance, plan ahead and acting as a great motivational tool
