If you have been inspired by the Rio Olympics then why not run some Olympic races around your own neighborhood? You don't even need to measure out the correct distances as the New York Times has worked it all out for you.
Olympic Races, In Your Neighborhood allows you to see what Olympic races would like if they were held in the streets around your house. Just enter your address into the NYT's Google Map and you can view a series of different Olympic events measured out on the roads near your house. The map will even tell you the time you will need to run each race in order to beat the gold medal winner in the Rio Olympics.
