As a GIS developer myself, I am interested in looking into new ways to improve my own applications and utilize new technology (mostly opensource). Does anyone have any inside information about what goes on behind the scenes of mapmyrun? is this a pure googlemaps api app?

Thanks for any replies,

Why don't you just ask them? – lynxlynxlynx Jun 25 '12 at 8:40
looking under 'work for us' shows multiple applications and software used - MySQL/PostGIS, Shapely, GEOS, PROJ.4, Openlayers gives a huge hint. – Mapperz Jun 25 '12 at 13:31
