Afternoon all, just looking for some expertise concerning the best options/approach for carrying a Go Pro whilst running. My intention is to have my Go Pro on me during the San Fransisco Marathon in just over a month so I am looking for fairly small and lightweight attachment with a comfortable handle and strap as well. Most of the ones of line have mixed reviews and seem to be targeted at the selfie market as opposed to the running market, I just wondered if anyone has one that works well and would recommend as the best option for taking along on a run! Many thanks!!

How about a wrist mount instead?

I've seen runners with a sort of chest harness. Looked into getting one for my daughter, Halfords and Argos do them, not too expensive

I have a chest harness and a headband. I prefer the headband for what it's worth - the chest harness rubs uncomfortably over a long distance. However, I'm kind of presuming that rjc13 is looking for the added flexibility of being able to point the camera at stuff while running rather than just capturing a forward view?

I'd have thought, also, a chest harness would not give much of a view in a congested race.

Got something to say?
