It's been another big weekend for Running and all things muddy, if this keeps up all the way to the London Marathon there's going to have been a lot of running miles put in before April the 13th.
This weekends galleries are listed below along with their status so far we have cataloged over 100,000 images (yes it's a manual process) and aim to have the last ones done around lunchtime tomorrow - we have the full team in the office so it should be swift, Facebook and twitter @uksportphoto updates will follow just as soon as the last two are online.

|Sun 23rd - Brentwood Half Marathon
This weekend compared to the same weekends last year were quite a bit different - at Brentwood we didn't have a snow blizzard warning, nor snow and ice during the race, at Richmond we had about 3 times as many runners, and no floods or ice on the towpaths, over at The Water of Life we had heavy Hail storms, when last year it was flooded off, and at Back to the Trenches the slide had been made very slidey and there were no laps. At least the F3 Events Dorney Lake half marathon had only a little wind, and almost perfect running conditions on the Saturday.

So, check out the galleries, we have a full team in today wednesday to finish off B2TT and Water of Life, so they will all be up as soon as possible.
Well done to everyone at the weekend, especially the less frequent runners who managed to make it around the half marathon courses, or the 10k's - it's not easy going - we hope we see you out and about soon ?
Right, until next time, enjoy the galleries, and please remember to order them before they are archived.
