Facing the marathon

adidas wants to show us what running a marathon really looks like, minute by minute. 15 runners from all levels of fitness and experience agreed to wear head mounted cameras during this year’s Berlin Marathon. These are their faces…

“Das Angesicht des Marathons / Facing the marathon” is a credible, sweaty and at times painful portrait of everyday sporting heroes.

Clicking on individual runners brings up short interview videos and a feed of images that are synched to the course in Germany’s capital. It seems like the popular sports cameras GoPro were used on the head contraptions - even legendary runner Haile Gebrselassie wore it for a while.
