The Ascend Collective takes us behind the camera to tell us how they capture some of our favorite running memories. If you've looked at a photo from a trail race in New York and said "Whoa", chances are it was taken by Ascend Collective. From sweeping vistas a top Ontario County Park down into the pond at the GVH mudslog, Ascend has developed a reputation for catching amazing images of trail runners in their element.
