Reading Half Marathon

Yesterday I was the PR photographer for the Reading Half Marathon, one of the biggest events of its type in the South of England. It certainly proved to be a challenging day - torrential rain, sleet and hail - so respect to all who participated.

I was on the back of a motorbike for part of the day, just to enable me to get the elites and the wheelchair racers before being dropped off at Mile 8 to walk back in and capture the general scenes.  I can safely say that my waterproofing was tested to the max and I found that my cheap cover ( http://www.wexphotographic.com/buy-optech-rainsleeve/p1017072) was way less fiddly than my considerably more expensive one but just that bit classier than a supermarket carrier bag when trying to cut a dash in a hi viz jacket in Reading town centre whilst clinging desperately to a motorbike outrider. Oh the glamour of it all.

My thanks to Vicki Isted for her excellent coverage of the event back at base (www.vicki-Isted.co.uk)

 

Here are a few pics from the day.
