Pilgrim Marathon and Half photos now live


All done ! With over 10,000 images, the gallery for the inaugural Full and Half Farnham Pilgrims Marathon is now live and online here: http://gallery.sussexsportphotography.com/a.tlx?k=160zg33

Believe it or not, but crashing websites in the days before an event are generally a good sign - it's happened to many other events, some much larger than this and all have been very successful and well received. So it was on Sunday at Sands where the inaugural Pilgrim Marathon started and finished - going via the Pilgrims way to St.Marthas Church at Guildford and then back with a small diversion.

Organised by the Rotary club of Farnham Weyside the funds raised by the race are going to be distributed to the Sportability.org.uk and Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice as well as other Rotary Charities. So you know that your pain and effort has been well worth the effort !

Given the hills, the sand and the relatively warm weather for marthon running - the times were never going to be the fastest - but rest assured - you all got a Personal Best for the course !

Four other rotary clubs supported the effort along with Farnham Runners as the local subject matter specialists ! Many of the compliments heard on the day included just how well the course was signed and marshaled - which is important when you don't really want to lose 600 people in the countryside or the woods.


Some notable big efforts on the day included the 100th marathon for Hillary Carter (Route designer and number 100) and his sons first marathon, Sam Powell who was raising money for the Special care baby unit at the Royal Surrey County Hospital after his Twins were born there, and the Husband and Wife team of Dave and Sarah Rollins who won the Half Marathon between them, him first overall, her first female and 5th overall... yikes.

So enjoy the gallery and seeing what your friends got up to at the weekend - http://gallery.sussexsportphotography.com/a.tlx?k=160zg33

Remember it's the XTFestival next weekend or the Firle Half Marathon - so take your pick !
Until next time,
Anthony
