Have you ever wanted to experience some of the most famous running routes in the world, like the Boston Marathon, or perhaps a 10k through Central Park in New York? With Virtual Runner, you can do the next best thing.
This is a clever app that is designed for treadmill runners who are looking for some extra adventure.
All that users need to do is download specific routes onto their iPad and hook it up to a treadmill in the gym. A 'footpod' is attached to the runner's shoelace and a wireless receiver is plugged into the user's iPad.
The connector is sold separately, but the app itself is free from iTunes.
