Check out this behind-the-scenes video from a fun few days in Los Angeles!
For the cover of the September issue of Competitor, we invited six runners from the 26 Strong training program to Hollywood for a photo shoot, some trail running and a couple of evenings hanging out on Sunset Boulevard. What is 26 Strong? It’s a marathon training program sponsored by Saucony and Competitor, in which 13 experienced runners serve as mentor coaches for 13 novices in search of their first marathon finish. The 13 runners have all made progress toward their fall marathon and several will conclude the program with their coach at the Honolulu Marathon in early December. Check out the video to see Lora Vaccaro (coach), Bridget Nixdorf (cadet), Jenny Poore (coach), Brittany Poore (cadet), Dorothy Beal (coach) and Danielle Shaffo (cadet) in action in some of the outtakes from the cover shoot and the highlights of early morning trail runs adjacent to the famous Hollywood sign in Bronson Canyon-Griffith Park and overlooking the Los Angeles metro area at Runyon Canyon Park.
