Change the details at the top "Jump to" UK, type your town in the next box, change zoom to around 14 to get the roads up. You can then use the left hand side to start recording a route.

Press record and then double click on your start point, then double click at points where you run to (be sure to take into account curves in roads as it won't do it for you), you can also put in your weight and it will calculate the calories (not sure how accurate this is though)

Let me know your thoughts.

Also a calculator for distances, times etc. http://gazza.co.nz/distance.html

i use g-map a lot and all our club routes are put on the net with it. a good tip, particularly when going off road, is to use the hybrid map as it is a lot easier to find the paths accurately. use a high magnification and the routes should be pretty accurate, to about 0.2 miles over a 10 mile course.

There are quite a few similar sites out there now too - they all seem to use the same Google map API.

A few people from my running club seem to like mapmyrun.com and I've also briefly looked at the mapping on runlondon.com.
