, 17:13

I'm a owner of a Garmin Forerunner 305. To use it under linux, there are two ways.

Use of

There is a plugin to install on firefox to be able to retrieve data from the garmin, and send data to the website . Simply add the following repository in ubuntu/debian and install garminplugin

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:andreas-diesner/garminplugin

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install garminplugin

In the first part, data are all uploaded and stored by garmin. you have no data on your computer, and you can't get them! In linux, you can store the data from the forerunner with the following program, available in the normal repository, with garmin_save_runs. The package name is garmin-forerunner-tools . The main website for the project is . Now you are able to convert these data and end them to different programs

and our team is fourth. BWIC challenge (BaWu for the french) is the Inline Cup for the , an Land from Germany. This is the equivalent of the French Cup.

This is the main page, the web page isn't a lot accurate, but it takes time to update and write all articles :). The most intereting part is the result system, which provide a large way to query all years, categories, races etc.

So less race than last year, but there was a little more people, perhaps the inline is coming a little back alone, after years of marketing.

Less races, but very well organized races, always transpoders for the time results, results online before the next days, really great. 20€ for a race, we have stuff for our money!

Next year, we will come back and perhaps add an Half Marathon in Strasbourg to the list of races!
