That was my next point oi you, Fetch uses mapping and so does mapmyrun, and they are 20% different. But I bet they are each consistent over the same course, so must be different map data, or using different algorithms or something.

For me no, it's not a big deal whether I do 500m or 600m of climbing in a run - might be for some. I know some hill runners don't really measure mileage, all they are interested in is amount of vertical gain run in a week/month/etc, so 20% difference depending on which site you log your runs is quite a lot

oi you
5 - 600m of climb! Fair dos, I'd be keen to log it correctly too.
And there's me thinking I've had a tough session on the track which showed 25m of climb because the map is older than the track

Got something to say?

Anyone fully understand how the altitude gain/loss is worked out ?

I did a run and used a Garmin ...
