Maidenhead Half, Bacchus, Alice Holt and Hard as Snails 2013 now live

A busy weekend with over 100,000 images into the servers - that's what 12 photographers can generate across 4 high quality races. We check all the images one-by-one, not by computer - so you can be sure that anything you order from us will be great quality. Apologies if that takes a bit of time - the team here in the office go as fast as they can !

The weather was changeable - with some sunny spells, passing heavy showers, so wet weather kit was needed everywhere (unless like our Hannah you left it in your car and ended up like a drowned rat on top of the North Downs). The early morning air temperature at 6am is definitely autumn grade now, so we gave our new coats and waterproofs a good testing - all ready for the real winter weather.

It was good to see some great performance in the variable conditions, Tish coming second overall at the HAS race on Saturday was certainly top billing, and the fancy dress efforts made on Sunday at Bacchus are something to behold - check through the gallery - notable was the Three Blind mice team, - you really should see how they run...
- pictures from the weekends races are down the page.

So that's it for the next few days, it's busy week ahead and we're just investing over £3000 in new kit for the office to improve the size of the team and speed we can get galleries online so we can improve our service.

Fingers crossed the weather for Sunday will be good - but it's not looking the best at the moment.

Well done everyone and until next time enjoy the autumn running season that is well and truly under way,
