Kellys Summer Cycle, ETL Badger Half, Wycombe Half, Phoenix and RPAC Summer 10k 2016 galleries all now live

Sunset on a great evenings running on Hove Seafront

It's been go go go here at SSP HQ, mainly because all sorts of good things are happening - for example we are covering the Race to the Stones with Pic2Go live technology this coming weekend - uploading runners photos live to their facebook photo galleries during the event (as long as we can see their pic2go barcodes!)

48hr coverage of an event that has a 100km course which is not readily accessible by car needs quite a bit of planning. One day I'll blog about the sets of all weather laptop boxes I've constructed from scratch, the power considerations for all night flash photography, battery charging and laptop use etc. and that's not including the thought of "so where's the internet in this wireless blackspot then?"

Things are easy when you can last 6hrs for a marathon, but when it's continuous from 6am saturday to 9pm sunday - when do you sleep ? It's definitely been an excuse for some work toys.

Last night was one of mixed blessing at the Phoenix Summer 10k (and Sussex 10k champs) and the RPAC Summer 10k in Reigate. On the upside, the torrential rain passed through both locations before the races, but on the downside Tony's very expensive camera threw a shutter blade, so if you want to know what the last moments of a Canon 1Dx cameras life looks like here you go..
Unlike a scene from the Omen, this is just a shutter blade flapping about.
I can confirm nothing happened to the runner later (so far...).

Here's a table of things for you to look up your race and see your galleries ! Enjoy reliving the experience...

A few quick shots from our selection of races for you in no particular order

Phoenix Summer 10k and Sussex 10k Champs

Moody skies at the start - caught by my 6yr old daughter. Not bad technically, timing and on composition.

Rain gone away - all is ok

Looking strong into the finish

You'd run fast too with that lot chasing you with leper bells...

Always good to see the stalwarts of the county scene

Badger Half Marathon
Top bombing - always look like your having more fun than them!

Suddenly she realised what her friends meant by a "Gosport Sandwich"...

She actually never puts her arms down

Top Guid work

crazy jumping bananas !

Hi !

High Wycombe Half and 10k

Good work on the top corner

When photobombing goes sort of right

They wouldn't let go of him...

First ever triple jump finish we have seen

The RPAC Summer 10k

Always race to the finish

Leading out the field past 1k

All ok !

Enjoying the evening out of the office

Finish line focus...

Kellys Summer Ride 2016 - all images were shared live during the event on Pic2Go - sending images direct to participants Facebook accounts immediately

Not quite Froome descent - but good enough

a relaxing ride 

Always good to see the boss man working up the hills

The Pubs behind you...

This is the original Olympic 2012 first hill climb - it's quite steep !

Top work by the young man

in the rain, but going downwind...
So that's it for this update - enjoy the galleries, I'm off to build two sets of mobile PC internet hubs for the weekend... and will see you at the Race to the Stones.

Until next time
