Time Lapse Video of an 18 Mile Run Through Central Park

On Sunday, September 20th, 2015 there was an 18 Mile Marathon Tune-Up run in Central Park that I participated in. With the TCS NYC Marathon in just 6 weeks, this long run is a good way to see if runners are on track to hit their goals.

But enough about running… Viewing NYC is not a runners’ blog, but rather a site to see cool and interesting parts of New York City. Running around the exterior Central Park loop is a great way to see all parts of it, so I strapped a camera to my chest as I ran the 3 laps so that you could see it too.

I ran with a chest-mounted GoPro Hero 4 Session, a tiny lightweight, and waterproof 4k camera that perfect for this kind of thing.

The race took me 2 hours and 25 minutes to run, but this video shows it all with a time lapse that is just 5 minutes.

The music in the video is Deadmau5 & Wolfgang Gartner — “Channel 42”
