PORTLAND, Maine — If you missed last weekend’s TD Bank Beach to Beacon race in Maine, you can still run the route thanks to a new DVD that puts runners on the course while training on a treadmill.
Boston-based Outside Interactive (www.outsideinteractive.com) launched a DVD at last week’s race in Cape Elizabeth featuring the Beach to Beacon course. Runners put the DVD into a DVD player or computer and get a runner’s-view perspective of the course from a treadmill.
The video can be set at a pre-set pace, or can be programmed so it automatically changes speed when the runner speeds up or slows down.
Other videos feature the Boston Marathon and the Falmouth (Mass.) Road Race, and runs through Central Park and along Boston’s Charles River.
