parkrun Event Map hack

A bookmarklet

July 2019

Please note

The parkrun event map recently had a big update, and now works in a completely different way. Hence, this hack does not currently work.

I've got a lot on at the moment, including a house move, so please bear with me until I have time to bring my code up to date with the new version of the map :)

In the meantime, I've left the old version in place below, in case you fancy having a go at tweaking the code yourself :)

It's handy for parkrun tourists, modifying the parkrun events map to show which events you (or anyone else you like) have visited.

Please note that the most excellent Running Challenges Chrome/Firefox extension already pretty much does all this and much more. However, if you've done more than 100 different events, it might be tricky to simply see all your visited events on one map with that. Plus, this should work in any browser that the map itself works in. (NB: if you find the map doesn't load in the first place - common in Chrome for Android - run the bookmarklet anyway; v2.4+ now checks to see if the map is loaded and reattempts initialization if not)
