Check out the outtakes from our October cover shoot with super fit trail runner Roberto Mandje.
For the cover of the October 2014 issue of Competitor, we shot elite trail runner Roberto Mandje running along Marshall Mesa Trail in Boulder, Colo. He’s also the subject of our cross-training story inside the magazine. You can see from the outtakes from our cover shoot that Roberto has a rock-solid physique that mimics Boulder’s iconic Flatirons mountains in the background. With a regular cross-training routine, the 2004 Olympic 1500-meter runner has found success on the trails in recent years, scooping up several top finishes in short-distance trail races and taking fifth at the 2013 Xterra Trail Run World Championships in Hawaii. In these images shot by Scott Draper, Roberto is donning Puma PR Pure 5″ Shorts, Faas 100TR and Faas 300TR trail shoes, Optic Nerve Sideswipe sunglasses, a Garmin Forerunner 10 running watch and a variety of Puma running tops.
