The 2012 Ozark Trail 100 was my third 100-mile race serving as race photographer, pairing it alongside the 2011 and 2012 Hawk Hundred races in Lawrence, Kansas.
It was a fantastic event in Steelville, Missouri. Course records fell at the fourth-annual event, with Pierre Deragne of Lyon, France, setting a new course record on the 103.1-mile course and Katie DeSplinter of Los Angeles, California, setting a new women’s course record.
In addition to providing race photos, as well as submitting an article to UltraRunning Magazine (it will be published in the Jan./Feb. 2013 issue), I also made my second attempt at putting together a race video from the event. It’s finally done.
Edited photos from the race can be viewed at this link.

Finally, about 13 minutes of video are ready to be viewed. I’ve embedded the clips below, first with a pre-race video that I hope captures a bit of the early nervous tension, and then a race video that features plenty of sounds of leaves crunching under feet during the first minute. Both videos are pretty raw quality, but I’m learning more each time I mess around with one of these. Almost the entire thing was shot with my GoPro, other than the start when I was running video on two cameras.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy them.
