TopoFusion Event MappingHere are just a few of the fine events TopoFusion has provided mapping services to over the years. As of 2013/2014 we have largely discontinued our mapping sponsorship and event mapping projects. If you have something special, please do get in touch, but we don't have the resources to offer free/sponsored mapping anymore.
This page still serves as an example of some of the maps you can produce using the software.

The footing (What footing?) is rocky, muddy (a few river crossings) and loose in places. The trail is not maintained (non-existent) in some areas. We love this stuff and hope you do too. ILK RULES! Bring on the ILK! ILK me! Is the trail as tough as advertised? Yes and No. I't s no run down a nature trail (but at times it is just that), you will get wet and muddy. You won't get swept down stream in any whitewater. Some big hills but no supplemental oxygen is needed. Our descriptions are a disclaimer. All in all, a great run in a beautiful environment...with stupid spots.
Sounds like a great time! Race organizers used TopoFusion to map and tweak the course. And in a special promotion, we've offered a "Dances with Dirt" version of TopoFusion. This free version of TopoFusion doesn't have any Demo tiles obscuring maps, nor is it limited to three files open. It is, however, limited to viewing the area (southern MI and northern IN/OH). This version also includes all the GPS files for the Dances with Dirt course. To download the Dances with Dirt version of TopoFusion, and for some instructions head over to:
