The Trail Running Film Festival - Back on Tour for 2024.

If you take a closer look at these amazing photos you can immediately tell they come from the hands, and eyes, of Dan and Janine Patitucci and the incredible team behind ALPSinsight.

‘Best of Running’ is now in its 7th edition, and of course it’s made by a German calendar publisher.

I’ve always loved big photo calendars and am bummed this love isn’t shared by most Americans. Over here photo calendars are something you pick up at the mall in desperation if you need a holiday gift for someone you don’t really know. Not a dig, just a reality driven by our loves for electronic devices and ever-present software calendars connected to magic server clouds.

Years ago I took over the ‘Tribute of the Trail’ Calendar Project, a calendar full of trail running photo and a fundraiser for the WTA (Washington Trail Association). Sadly the calendar never sold in numbers to justify the effort getting it published.

So now, I will spend the horrendous shipping fees to get myself a cool photo calendar shipped from Germany.
