Route Maps – Problems Not My Fault

Hi everyone,

For some years now, I have been using a web-site called WalkJogRun to map my walking routes. Once created I could embed the WalkJogRun URL into my blog posts. The resulting thumb-nail image on my blog page could then be clicked on, which would launch full size in the WalkJogRun site and would then be viewable in a more meaningful and readable size on top of google maps.

It was easy and simple to use, there were very many routes mapped by lots of users, which was great for new ideas.

Well, from spring I was getting intermittent accessibility/poor user interfacing and then I couldn’t open/create any routes against my account. Even more recently I hadn’t even been able to launch the WJR web-site, their FB pages or anything else.

After some more digging, I’ve now read that WJR have, in effect, folded (during May sometime apparently), the web-site has been shut-down and with it all the routes I’d mapped and created links to. There was no notification from WJR in the run up to this happening or any opportunity for them to let me have the files I’d created.

Therefore, unfortunately, all the maps you can see on my blog pages will no longer launch as larger sizes. My apologies if this causes any inconvenience, but I assure you I wish it wasn’t like this and I’ve now got to search around for an alternative. I hope the remaining thumb-nail images, combined with my words are enough to describe my route and be follow-able on the associated OS maps I list in the walk descriptions/title blocks.

Feeling sad at the demise of WJR.
