I was recently looking for some examples of story maps related to running race courses when I was pointed in the direction of the Story Maps Gallery. Before I was just searching in the ArcGIS Online search bar and filtering to show only applications. This gallery provides some well  much more functionality.


You can search text or filter by:

  • App Type
  • Subject
  • Format
  • Author


For my example I simply selected the "Sports" subject and found several examples of races that used a story map to provide information to their participants, volunteers, and spectators. Here are a couple of my favorites:


London Marathon

London Marathon


Teton Dam Marathon Races

Enjoy this interactive map! You can even view elevations of the race by clicking on the mile markers. Pan, zoom and click to see more detail. If you want to see details of another race, click on the other tabs to the left.


Check out the Story Maps Gallery to learn something new or gain inspiration for your next story map!
