Brutal Congo Stream, Muddy Mission, GYBR, Hampshire Hoppit and Shrewsbury Half 2017 Galeries are now live

All go at Congo Brutal, a new course near Deepcut
In another fast paced weekend we covered five events and licensed the Pic2Go technology out to yet another.

It's a quick blog this week as it's late, I need sleep before 2am, it's been hot and we're all bothered !

Here's the table of recent events - just use your race number to search and order your race photos.

Remember for the free ones - order the image and select the free download option and checkout as normal...

Sun-18/06/2017 Shrewsbury Half Marathon - Pic2Go

Heads up to a few recent enquieries as to why we ask for delivery address on all orders - well the law changed about 5 years ago to make VAT applicable in the UK based on the address of the customer, not the supplier. This has killed of tax dodges by digital music sales operating out of Jersey for example, and yes it affects us too...

As a quick round up of the weekend which was the hottest on record this year - if you had wanted a good wet cooling dip in the woods, the the New Brutal Congo Woods course would have been the 10k race for you on saturday. Muddy Mission around the nuts challenge course raised money for Parkinson Disease was also with it's watery dips for a cool down (and wash !).

It was then a quick trip up west to Shrewsbury for a full operated event - the gallery putting images direct to people's facebook account has now had over 1.2million image views for the Sponsors UKRunChat - the main feedback has been the absolute delight on the texts, feedback, tweets and facebook posts saying just how fantasitc the system is, it certainly brings home to us just how much enjoyment we can bring with our work ! (which is nice!) (and makes the total of 9 hours endurec in a transit van of computer and photography equipment without airconditioning - all the more worthwhile!)

It was also the second running of the Hampshire Hoppit, a lovely rolling hills trail half marathon and marathon race with views to take your breath away, again with some tough temperatures, but fantastic trails to run along. 

Next events coming up over the month ahead for you to get your last minute entries in !

quick leg cooling and wash

propper cooling off

someone got a Brutal Tattoo. Don't be tempted, he's the only one getting free races for life now...

The muddy mission for Parkinsons meanwhile, wasn't too muddy but good fun !
over the tyre mountain

king of the peak

hanging on to the edge

this is not a jaccuzi

swing on

That Weller moment

don't forget to hold your breath

Lets go from the top eh ? the puddle has been filled especially !

Good team running into the finish

Over in Hampshire, things were normal
losing the mind slowly !

High five !

It's Penny, from Fleet, the race director no less !

start and finish HQ in the distance

everything ok no up the gallops

always run with friends if you *have to*

fantastic views from the start

plenty of space on the trail for overtaking

That finishing feeling

And over at Shrewsbury, the UK RunChat was set to take off with pic2go live images through the event

Bloke from Tipton wasn't believing the winner billing I gave Ian, I was right, Titon didn't finish

nice view of the crowd out on their way

All good going through town

top photobombing !

great teamwork allaround the course

This group did well to motivate each other around the race
Right, that's it for now, I hope you're all surviving the heat well - for those of you with a silver foil space blanket, I can recommend using them across your car window (when it's parked!), just trap it in the doors when you get out - it has made a massive difference to my car this whole time, and it is super quick to put on, and take off.

Enjoy the galleries - always follow us on twitter or facebook to find out when they were live (usually on average a monday), if you want to see images fast - don't wait for the blog !

until next time, keep hydrated, and wear sunscreen !
