Video: NYC marathon time-lapse

I came across this video made by Gwen Schroeder on Vimeo and had to share it. Using a GoPro HD Hero 2 camera strapped to her head as she ran the 2011 NYC Marathon, she was able to compile this time-lapse video of the duration of the marathon. The camera took a picture every second, allowing her to then edit the images into one clip.

I can’t imagine running 26.2 miles with a camera attached to my head but I give Gwen the biggest of props for doing so because it allows viewers, like myself, to experience running the NYC Marathon. Also, for anyone who’s already run the race, they can relive it!

  1. Hi Hannah I am planning to run with my Go Pro Hero 3 camera and do the time lapsed photos of an entire Marathon. I might take around 4 hours to complete it and I am interested to know how many batteries did you use to record this Marathon. Thanks and I loved your video.
