The Run Scout: 3D Flyovers of Race Courses via Google Earth

The Run Scout is a new site that provides 3D flyovers of race courses ranging from Half-Marathons to Ultramarathons. The site, designed by Jim Vernon, is relatively new, so there is not a lot of content yet, but I imagine that will change with time. Currently, course flyovers are available for such notable races as the Vermont 50, Leadville 100, New York City Marathon, and San Francisco Marathon, as well as several others. Looks like the site has great potential as a resource for distance runners.

Below are direct links to Run Scout flyovers videos:
