Llanelli Half, Colchester Half and the Surrey Primary Schools XC champs 2017 galleries now live

They call this leading from the front. I call it - pretty impressive !! This was his lead before 1 mile. 

Three important events this weekend in the calendar, when there were several major half marathons going off across the country we managed to find ourselves as far West and as far East as we tend to go on the same day at Llanelli and Colchester Half Marathons, as far from Sussex we can get without going north !
It's days like this we sometimes think that completely rebranding to UK Sport Photo, which is actually our Ltd Company name might be more appropriate !

Returning Customer ?
Firstly a quick note to returning customers - back in December we changed the entire gallery that we host the images on to Photoshelter, (from Thirdlight) - which means when ordering you will need to create a new account, as your old log in to our previous gallery has not been moved across. (it's a data protection thing).
Unfortunately the "reset email" link is designed for people who already have an account - with the photoshelter platform, so if it's your first time back to the SSP gallery since last year - please create a new account ! I have asked photoshelter to tell people if they don't have an account when resetting passwords (instead of just saying they are sending a reset email and not doing so because you don't have an account) - but this is going to take some time for them to implement.

Looking like the makeover worked

Excellent run in for the win

Great running in with friends

I hope you all enjoyed your running at the weekend, even if you weren't the last 600 who didn't get a medal at the end of the Bath Half marathon. The weather is getting warmer and hopefully will continue to improve now we are getting through March and the marathon season. Keep yourself injury free in the meantime !!

Until next time, it's the busiest weekend of the year coming up for us, so please bear with us next week whilst we get through all the indexing -  it was a 100,000 image weekend for us this week - and it's possible it could be double that next week and we are likely to be 30% down in the staff in the office...errr, yes we are trying to figure out a solution... all suggestions welcomed
