DHL Stafetten on Google Maps

DHL Stafetten

Tomorrow the world's largest running event, the DHL Stafetten, will begin in Copenhagen. During the race 125,000 people, in teams of five, will run relays of 5 km each over five days.

Soren Johannessen has created a Google Earth plugin tour of the course of the DHL Stafetten. The tour provides a flyover of the course from start to finish. The tour features markers at ever kilometre on the course and even has a soundtrack.

Soren has created a gadget of the tour so it is possible to embed the course in your own website or blog. You can grab the code for the gadget here. It is also possible to download a kml of the track and view it in Google Earth.
