iPhone app for wife to track me?

I was wondering if there was an iphone app that I or we can use for my wife to track me during a marathon this weekend.  Anyone know of one for the iphone?   We both have them.  

 

I know there is the "find my phone" app but I have never used it.  Would it work?

    Manders.. iMapMyRUN app has a feature on it that you can post to your facebook and it will track you - if I read the app right anyway. I've never done it but I have heard other people at races tell me about it. You can sign on to IMapMyRUN through facebook and you can set the settings differently.. then people can click on your facebook page and it should show your route and where you are going. There is a free app and an upgraded one (you may have to buy) for 1.99. I hope this helps.

    Manders.. I was just looking thru IMapMyRUN and it has has a "live" tab on the main screen- this is probably what you are looking for. Again, I have the upgraded version so I'm not sure if it's on the free version or not.

    Have you looked into Runkeeper and their app?  I believe you have to upgrade to a year's "membership" but its relatively cheap.  And I've used it to let my parents and other family members "follow" me around on a 5k or 10k run.    Folks at home can follow along on the computer as long as you run with the Runkeeper app "on".

    Manders

     

    Endomondo app allows your "buddies" to track you and give you pep talks while you are out running.

    You don't have to upgrade to pro in order for it to allow your wife to track you.
