Run to the Beat 2011 | London Half Marathon photography

Last Sunday I  went for the first time to the Millennium Dome – now the O2 Arena – as I took part in the London Half Marathon.  I didn’t do any running though but I was part of the team that photographed the 17,000 participants that run the 13.1 miles in East London accompanied along the way by great music in 12 stages set up just for them. It is a great event to be part of so please visit Run to the Beat website for more information. A few photos below to share with you.

 

The Windsor Triathlon 2011

Last weekend I went to work at another event of the 2011 British Triathlon Super Series. Got to lovely Windsor very early in the morning and after a few hours of sunshine the hard rain and cold wind got there to stay for the rest of the day.  This didn’t make things easy for competitors but it was still a great day out.

The Blenheim Triathlon 2011

This weekend was a very busy one as I was for two long days photographing the competitors at the Blenheim Triathlon.  It was very exciting to be part of the second biggest triathlon of the UK and I was also lucky to be able to see F1 Driver Jenson Button and Olympic Athlete Iwan Thomas after they crossed the finishing line. Here are some of my favourite shots of competitors and celebrities.
