Brighton Marathon 2010 Race Pictures
A very big good luck and fingers crossed to everyone taking part in the Inaugural Brighton Marathon 2010 on Sunday.
Sussex Sport Photography.com are proud to be the official PR photographers on the day, recording this historic event for generations of Marathon Runners to come.
Pictures during the race will be being transmitted live from the lead race car as well as from one of our photographers around the course during the day into the gallery here (if the technology doesn't fall over!) :
I'll emphasise that this is a Press and Media Gallery so the images are not for sale, but you can certainly have a good look and see what is going on and enjoy the action (or see what happened when you get back!)
If you are a member of the media, you can get an accredited log-in by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org - please put Brighton Press Image Access in the title of your request.
In the meantime, on our course check today - you'll notice the Brighton Pavilion all cleaned and ready to go - the lack of plane vapour contrails (and clouds) being one of the more noticable features of the day - long may the sunny weather continue - well until Sunday afternoon.
We also got pictures of the finish - but thought we'd leave that until tomorrow to show you what that looks like !
Race Director Tim Hutchings, his ex-running rival Steve Ovett OBE who is going to start the race, and Ex-England and Leeds International footballer Danny Mills will be there to see everyone off on the day - except Danny who's decided to do it in a wheel chair for charity - yes seriously.
Good luck everyone - have a great day.
Finally - here's a thought from one of our favourite social-media commentators - if you're feeling deep and meaningful later - it kind of applies to everyone out there today trying to discover just that little bit more about themselves via the medium of running:
All the best
