The New Gallery
has taken almost 18 months to conceive and construct, brought on by our current supplier deciding to pursue "corporate internal use" image galleries and to remove e-commerce functionality - which of course - we think is quite an important part of our business ! (well we would give them away instead if doing stuff for free was a viable business model, but it isn't...)

The upshot of all this change is we now have much larger gallery storage, can accept Paypal, and faster and larger direct downloads and new user accounts which holds your order history on this new gallery. Plus lightboxes - which are a great way to create a running diary of all the images we have taken of you over the events, making it easy for you to keep a record of your running (albeit with watermarks).

New Directions
In the next few weeks we will be changing the web redirection for the gallery.sussexsportphotography domain to point to the new gallery (It's a CName thing). Old gallery links with this front part of the web address will come to the new gallery - but to an error page, but also with a navigation link to get to the and most people should be able to find themselves a way around from there.
You may have also noticed our new "sspimg" link shortening - which we think looks a bit better than a

Here's a few pictures from the weekend for you !

First up the Hogs Back near Guildford:

Rory had a tight hamstring so went for a drive instead

A strong start out of the blocks 

all looking good, they had yet to meet the Hog

The eyes have it

Photobombing your own photo doesn't count does it ?

All looking good at the finish

all the way to the finish

What happened next? Cartwheeling to the finish...

 Meanwhile over at Peacehaven - the Seaford Striders Mince Pie 10

Fab views and blue skies, but chuffing cold

On his annual mission

It all seemed so good early on

Definitely gloves weather !

Fancy dress all the way

Guns out

Top Christmas jumpering

A very fast Worzel Gummage

A great Christmas top

The blue nosed reindeer

When Mrs Clause comes to the south coast

Top antlers

running as a complete tree and her helpers

By mile 9 and it wasn't going so well

There's laws against this sort of thing

Top tinseling

Getting good air

Santa is on his way...
and finally over at the Mapledurham Ten - some off-road on path countryside action

All good at the start on the way out on the first loop

Headphones and reindeer hat - fantastic!

Always good to see you !

surprise !

Strong finishing

Won't be late for work this Christmas

Good celebrations at the finish

Prizewinner for the biggest Christmas turkey thighs

flying in for the double arm raise
So get yourself over to the new gallery to see how that works out for you, we're still making some final tweaks and turns to how it flows and little changes here and there so every bit of feedback counts

Until next time, enjoy the warmer weather for training.
