Oxford Town and Gown 10k, Marlow 5, EG Tri, British Orienteering Champs, and Kellystore Cycle Ride 2015

Cyclists cutting through the fields of yellow on the Kelly's Ride (click to enlarge)
Yet another perfect day for running about and cycling across the countryside. Sunday had just enough sun to keep it warm, but just right to post some fast times on some great scenic courses.
Lots of people raising money for charity as well at the weekend at the Kellys Challengers cycle ride, and the Muscular Dystrophy Oxford Town and Gown 10k.

Here's some of the action from the weekend, don't forget we will see you at the Godalming 10k  and Bognor 10k next weekend (both are now sold out)

All off at the start of the Marlo5

Flying in with the RAF

True grit at the finish

The exit from the park at the head of the race

For the win for Maidenhead

Relief at the end for the win - also from Maidenhead 

Meanwhile - not too far away near Farnham at the Kelly's Challengers Cycle Ride, we used the pic2go system to get images from the event out to the riders personal Facebook folders - during the ride !

Over 50% of the images we're uploaded and distributed before the end of the event. For those of you interested - the images on Facebook have had over 56,613 impressions, 197 comments and 885 likes in the last two days - hopefully encouraging plenty more people to sign up for next years event and getting the Challengers events the publicity they most definitely deserve.

You can see the special pic2go barcodes on the helmets and bikeplates below - they worked wonderfully well on the day with over 7000 images and 394 riders identified automatically.

Pictures from this event straight to facebook can still be registered and delivered direct by using the sign up box on the gallery:
