The selfie. Over the past three years, this picture-taking technique has become one of the most popular ways for runners to share their race day experiences. Cross the finish line, grab friends and take a quick pic, then share it out to the world. It’s exciting, in-the-moment and race directors should encourage and support such actions as much as possible – creating a unique way to spread the excitement of your event.

While the selfie still might feel like a new trend in the running world, the Austin American-Statesman Capitol 10,000 in Austin, Texas is already moving on to the next version of the selfie. The dronie.
