Deloitte RAB, Mudathon, Winchester Half and Royal Borough of Kingston Half Marathons 2016 Gallery now live

With so much having gone on over the past week it's great to be back into that busy Autumn Race Season feeling.

Runners waiting around for the start of the Autumn Race Season earlier this week

We had a fantastic time at two inaugural events this weekend - the Winchester Half Marathon and the RBKingston Half Marathon. Conditions were a bit overcast to start off with - but were soon perfect for running. Congratulations to KBC Events and Rees Leisure on two new excellent events in the race calendar.


So - the following four fabulous new galleries are now online for you to check out what it was all about:

Happy to make it to the end on the Ride Across Britain

(The new pic2go logo - now have to roll that out)

We don't make that much of a song and dance about the Pic2Go service (www.pic2go.co.uk) but it has been a fantastic week of covering the Deloitte Ride Across Britain on their Lands End to John O'Groats #LeJog. Our embedded photographer covered the ride from start to finish over 9 days - and uploaded images live during each day so most often friends and family were able to see photos of the riders out on the course before the riders had even reached for their smartphones !
The images that were sent out to competitors all had a clever progressive watermark for each day along with sponsor branding - so with just a glance they could tell which stage of the ride it was taken on and the sequence of photos for the entire experience and story.
At the time of writing we have had over 1.7 Million image views across social media by riders, friends and families - all closely linked to the event, which is a fantastic number of people sharing in the most memorable of experiences.

It's a fantastic life experience
Not sure we quite had this shot to him by the time he checked his smartphone this time though...

And Sorry if we missed you at Ealing - and if you've come here looking for this years images - our web traffic stats say you have been having a good look back here. Alas - the organisers decided to go with an alternative supplier. We did offer our services to them for free again this year and our profit contributions to their race charity, but that's how it goes sometimes - so a Gallic shrug and off we go again !

However - if you would like to see last years Ealing Half Marathon Gallery 2015 - then that is still available here on our archive gallery: - https://sussexsportphotography.smugmug.com/Events/2015/201509/Ealing 


Marathon training event workshop
If any of you have done something recently that involves committing yourself to training for a marathon next April, or any Marathon really - then you might be interested in this workshop taking place in Burgess Hill on the Thursday 13th of October at 7pm - (donation only) - get yourself involved on here:
It's being organised by these guys https://jelfitness.com/

and now...

Here's some shots from the weekend

Top marks to this runner who stepped up to help out with the warm up - he's a personal trainer - check out his tshirt if you need one

Off from the start in the market place

100 yards in and all is ok

2 miles in and all ok

working that camera

good work chaps

no press please ! err - for him

Top work for charity

airplane-ing it in at the finish

All for the love of bling

Meanwhile in Winchester (which is quite hilly don't you know)

Look, we can do branded PR type shots for races too !!


Top lead bike marshals ready for the off

The mayor writes out a parking ticket for the lead clock car on their Henchmans back - James Bond style.

Remote cameras all set up and ready at the start - ready for barcode reading

This Kia looks quite sporty !

A great crowd at the start and the farmers market in the High Street

Chris encouraged the runners up the hill

Good work for the win in 1:12:17

Et voila, stored carefully down his shorts. No, not much use there.

For the home win - 1:32:01 on a tough course !

Fair to say he was happy about it

The ancient streets of Winchester and its hills

Frankly He looked far too happy.

Good to see Ant Gritton take second in 1:14 for Lordshill - an ex Tuff Fitty Triathlete

taxiii ???

No getting past these guys

For real marshalling in westside.

That concentratey look up a hill

The motivators have it ! (aka sweepers)

Top pacing work around the course


Looking strong on the first return into town

Overall a great weekend of running and sport around the southern counties - and perfect weather for it - now we have gone past the Autumnal equinox - so remember - if you are running and training into the darker evenings - please make sure you have your high-viz vests on or something very reflective - it's easy to forget !

until next time - we have a busy one coming up !
