Race Maps


This plugin allows the quick creation and display of regional or global Race Maps – maps which display future running events as pins on a live Google Map – within WordPress blog posts and pages, using simple shortcodes.

Race details are added by event organisers and moderated at , and races are removed from maps once they take place, so that race information is always live and up-to-date.

If runners access your WordPress website, this can enhance their experience, increase pageloads, and lengthen visit length of their visits!
