"The most common question from potential entrants is 'I do not know if I can do this' to which I usually answer, 'that's the whole point'.--Paul Charteris, Tarawera Ultramarathon RD.

Menace to Sobriety
Highly recommend Olympus TOUGH series:
To test its durability, one of my friends took an earlier version of this camera and dragged it from a speedboat going 25 MPH. Still worked like it was right out of the box. It's waterproof and shockproof and relatively compact -- perfect for running
Happy running (and shooting),

Hometown AG win.
I got an Olympus Stylus 770SW last year, and the thing is indestructible. It was in my bathing suit pocket when I was swimming in a river and it fell out. I was able to find it on the bottom of the river, and it was just fine. It's been dropped, tossed, soaked, shaken, covered in shampoo (packed with a bottle that exploded in luggage) and generally abused and still works great. In addition it has image stabilization, so those shots taken on the run will come out nice and clear! My favorite part, though, is that it's made of metal... it just feels like a better quality when you hold it. I can't say enough good about this camera. It's a year old, so there is probably a similar replacement model by now.
