Marathon runner appeals for support with GPS image

Howard Lake | 14 January 2009 | Blogs

How do you make your sponsored marathon run stand out from the thousands of other people’s efforts?
Jenny Rice, a student at Kingston University, has managed to do just that by “writing” her appeal for support into the landscape using a GPS wristwatch.
The effect is “skywriting in reverse” according to Runner’s World.
It took her 70 minutes to record her route as she ran with a GPS watch, a Garmin Forerunner 205. She then used gpsvisulalizer.com to create the map.
Even better, she has demonstrated all this via YouTube.
You can make out her appeal:
“Hello I am running in the 2009 Flora London Marathon for ICYE [Inter-Cultural Youth Exchange]
Please sponsor me…
www.justgiving.com/jennys_run ”
A remarkable mashup of GPS, fundraising and digital media.
