ABP Southampton, REP Bluebell and Heart of the Wolds 2018 - galleries now live


All go at the start of the 10k after the Half and Marathon start at Southampton in perfect race weather

Well done to everyone who had a fantastic time on Sunday in the perfect weather for running wherever you were - everywhere except London by the look of things, where it was a bit too hot.

The 2018 Southampton Half Full and 10k Fun Run gallery is absolutely stacked full of images - over 280,000 of them in fact - all catalogued and ready for your searching - I'm amazed at the job our photographers have done this year - some cracking images though the water mist on the bridge and in the Saints Stadium - given how crowded it was there's a fantastic memory right there for you along with your finish photos to make a wonderful story to remember the weather and your hard work by.

Free Downloads at REP Bluebells
We had a free download event at the REP Bluebell event - if you ran that - to get your free photos - order the free photos - I know - it sounds a bit weird, but just add the ones you want to your order basket and select the free images listed in the downloads tab ( there's a print/products/downloads tab in the top corner). because they are free - there's no transaction at checkout, and you get the download links immediately, untouched by our human hands !

If you have a bit of a glance down the listings below, you will see event organisers are continuing to go forwards with the benefits of free downloads when there's a reliable team to delivery a solid coverage for participants throughout an event.

we continue to talk to event organisers to engage with Sponsors to use Pic2Go.co.uk  for live race photo sharing, where it's more personal and more effective, and better value to use Pic2Go than them trying to advertise online on social media and it helps the event and individuals to raise more money for charity... so some quite good reasons for everyone involved in events! If you're organising or sponsoring an event, or want to sponsor and event we are involved with - then please just get in touch - because we know people !

The terror of being chased by a letterbox, you know it's there somewhere behind you

Always nice to see the Sister-in-law pop in to the "bring a relative to work" day - enjoying the start

Taking in the views of Bargate and the historical bit of town

That Itchen bridge view

It was clean water - honest

water carefully and grow two more arms !

all good through the Football stadium - awaiting the FA cup semi-final v Chelsea


Late call up, for a taxi ?

As good as any days to run through the stadium 

Seagulls and the River in a park make for a jolly nice run route !

some didn't run, but just watched the finish from their studio flat with 70's hipster swing hammock to lounge in

I don't recommend doing a facebook live as you cross the line you might trip...

He wasn't doing a facebook live

The route is lined with well established food dineries to cater for all tastes... even Pompey ones

Smashing it !!

Smashing it - with styleeee

Smashing it with a unicorn

Smashed it with some proper emotion

Smashed it with friends

Smashed it with something about THIS BIG

Never too young to start racing, and keep out of the way

Full Flow on the mile

Top T'shirt

"No, I'm not doing it next year"- said every race director ever with a reassuring hand

New Saints subs official shirt, might catch on ?

get off skype for a more immersive 3D experience

Route checked and cleared the hard way after the overnight lightning

This so needs to be in a meme of barriers you have to clear to go training for a marathon
 meanwhile in the Bluebell woods and the REP Angmering race
All good at the 2k point - how could this be better conditions ?

Even the dog looks a tad concerned

Surrender now, that view is ridiculous

yes for the happy number finishing !

almost as happy !

Can you do a flying yoga running pose - and hold it in mid air

Space Cat can hold any yoga pose in mid air (check the vest out)

more running yoga poses

 holds the longest mid air running yoga pose possible. In fact I think she's still there. This is exceptional.


So that's it for another weekend of running experiences that you should now go and register for next year because you know you shouldn't be missing out again like this...
And if you didn't miss out, you best get your photos as this is where the memories begin - and everyone else has just entered and booked out the race so you can't do it next year...

until next time !

Brutal Bagshot 2018 - Alpine Hills - gallery now live


All go at the Brutal race start 2018
The Brutal Alpine Trail is now live and online here: sspimg.com/Brutal-Alpine-Trail-2018-Gallery
and excellent turn out for one of the more popular locations for the race with a mix of hills, running, forest, mud holes, water and flat running. Together with the warmer weather that you could describe as almost spring-like a healthy turnout of Brutaleers made their way for a bit of Saturday exercise.
One mistake was that with all the heavy rainfall - the latent temperature of the water had still not fully warmed up, especially in the evergreen woodlands that make up the alpine driver training circuit - which caught a few people out !

He seemed unusually surprised and delighted, which is always nice to see

what's that coming over the hill, is it a?  yes - we see you !!

en-mass surrender, only a km into the run

first off splashing through the tank tracks

run with speed and passion

That moment the cold water meets reality

The second reaction when the cold water hits

found the deep bit

when you've put one over on your teamy

taken the shortcut on the bank ? mistake. Big mistake.
 
can't be done for false advertising

early bath

always check you have everything on leaving the water

the water tastes horrible apparently

not sure wearing sunglasses and feeling your way through is the best tactic

Bit of a Rolls-Royce Spirit of Ecstasy

super-girl !

It looks loving, but it's really a finger-lock pressure grip

this way up for Lisa

Five star

Good work from the fit crew

Woodland trail running is lovely

No, they are not *all* brothers.

Ruthless to the end, he leaves Mum to eat water in his wake

That awkward moment - are we still in Europe, is it just shaking hands, man hugs, or two cheeks air kissing, no tounges ? Damn Brexit ruining everything.

Half and half

Floating over the water on the run into the finish

You have been baptised into the clan of Brutal...
so with it warming up, very well done to all my friends who completed the Brighton Marathon is warm and rain, in everything from sub 2:30 to 6hours - you know who you are, and well done to the kids who all did better than expected in the Brighton mini-mile on saturday whilst the Brutal was going on - again - you know who you are - simply outstanding !

So next weekend is locked and loaded for the Southampton 10k, Half and Full Marathon - a whole days running finishing with the kids fun run sprint, the forecast is good and perfect conditions - so enjoy the mini heatwave mid-week and see you out there soon !

until next time
Anthony
