As a gift to the Bellingham Trail Community, Runner Girl Races LLC, aka Chuckanut 50k, teamed up with Maps for Good to create a beautiful PDF map of Chuckanut Mountain that is also available to download on your phone for offline location awareness. There is a map of the Chuckanut Mountain Trails as well as a map that highlights the Chuckanut 50k race course. You can download a printable version on the Course Map page on the Chuckanut 50k website and/or have easy access on your phone.
We would love your comments and feedback as you use both versions of the map. Comment below or send Krissy an email chuckanut50 at gmail.com.
Following are directions from my friends at Maps for Good.
DOWNLOAD THE RACE MAP TO YOUR PHONE FOR OFFLINE LOCATION AWARENESS
You can download the race map to your smartphone to see your location along the trail—no wifi or cell service needed!
In the App Store (Apple) or Google Play (Android) on your smartphone, download a free app called PDF Maps made by Avenza Systems. Once it has downloaded, open the app and look at the bottom of the screen for Store (with a shopping cart icon). In the search bar, where it says find maps, type Chuckanut. It will default to a map view, which is nice but not as easy to use. Click List at the top of the screen to switch to list view. There you'll see our two maps: Chuckanut 50k Race Map and Chuckanut Trails (not specific to the race). Purchase one or both! All proceeds support future map updates.
Once you've acquired your maps, they will be in your maps collection inside the PDF Maps app. You can find them by tapping on Maps in the bottom left corner of the app. Tap on any one of the maps to open it and see your location. You can pinch to zoom in and out and drag your finger to pan across the map—just like you would in any other map on your phone. You can also mark waypoints, make notes, record your tracks, and measure distances. When you have the map open on your screen, you can find all those tools by tapping on the wrench tool in the bottom right of the screen.
