Western States 100 Trail Run – One Runner’s Journey Video

If you like trail running.

If you like the Western States 100.

This video is a must see as Steve Emmert records nearly 25 minutes of video from his recent journey. Yes, 2-5 minutes…but every minute includes the sight, sounds, and his personal thoughts from the trail. A true pleasure to watch.

I have not see a more complete video providing a glimpse of this 100 mile experience.

Have a great weekend!

Be active – Feel the buzz!

    That was terrific!

    Having worked as a volunteer the last 11 races, I haven’t seen that much of the actual course, so this was really a treat!

    Hey, glad you enjoyed my video! I made it mostly for my family who were not able to be there, but I’m happy to see that many others have gotten something out of it as well.

    Thanks for the great memories! Throughout the video I kept saying I remember being there, there, and there. What a terrific day, night and morning. Let’s hope we can do it again sometime very soon!

    Steve – Thanks for sharing. It also appears you are a Western States TALON athlete as well…maybe?? Either way, congratulations on your WS finish!

    OK – so I know the video has been posted for a while but I just stumbled across it. Great stuff – love it! What type of camera did you use to shoot the video? Would love to carry along something similar on some of my races – loved the picture quality and the sound on the one that you used…

    @Brian… not sure you’ll ever check back on this months old comment, but, I used a Kodak Playsport. Works great for this kind of stuff.

    Thanks Steve! I passed the information onto Brian.
