USATF Cross Country Event Coverage:
2006 USATF National Club XCThis 94 minute DVD gives you the opportunity to study a variety of cross country running techniques from the perspective of numerous cameras positioned around the course. The best treat of all is that one of these cameras looks back on the lead runners from the bicycle that leads them around the course in beautiful Golden Gate State Park in San Francisco, California. It’s like you are in the press car with the bonus of having a remote control that gives you the change to use slow motion or pause so you are sure to not miss any of the action. Watch team pack running, strides, execution on the hills and the final finishing kicks. Race footage comes from each of the following four races: Men’s Open and Master’s 10k and the Women’s Open and Master’s 6k. Order your copy directly from Pocket Videos.com.
