Photo highlights from this year’s Virgin Money London Marathon. I would normally do one or two days during the week aka Press Days, then cover the actual Race Day which is on Sundays and then the Winners Press Day is on Monday.
Press Days – Elite Men, Women and British
On Race Day this year, I started off at Embankment with the Coca Cola London Eye as my backdrop for some of my shots. I then moved on to the finish line where I could capture some of the runners as they finished their race.
This year a friend was running the marathon and I managed to capture her as she crossed the finish line. It was not an easy task seeing how many people were finishing at the same time, but the London Marathon App really helped as I was tracking her race.
Winners Press Day
I am always in awe of all the runners and inspired by them just taking part, be it as an elite runner, for charity or just themselves, that I actually entered myself for the London Marathon 2020 ballot.
I don’t know if I am successful or not until October 2019. Wish me luck!
