How can I become MORE trackable by GPS?

Is it possible for two iOS 4 apps to access and use GPS information at the same time? Specifically, would iOS let me use RunKeeper to track a run in the foreground, and let an app like PlaceTrack update Google Latitude in the background?

I'm running a 10K on Sunday, and I'm a pretty huge RunKeeper user; for those not in the know, RK is an iOS (and now Android) app that uses GPS to track runs and give you a bunch of stats. My wife wants to track where I am so she and the kiddo can come out and see me at one or two points along the route... and while RunKeeper has the ability to send live updates of your position to their web-based service, she tells me that being able to see the info on their website is challenging at best on her Droid. But Google Latitude works fantastically on Android, so if I were able to *also* have Latitude updating in the background, all would be perfecto.
Does anyone know if I'll be able to have RunKeeper and Google Latitude both get my GPS info at the same time from my iPhone?
