2009 SBS Marathon Photo Series


This is the winner of the SBS Marathon in Christchurch, coming down the home straight.  I attended the Marathon with members of my photo club, with the purpose of practicing our shutter speeds. It was quite a challenge to get things focused! And we were really surprised at just how fast the top athletes ran.  It was very cold, we had some sleet, and a cold easterly blowing. So I take my hat off to all of those who took part in the full and half marathons, and the walkers – you are very brave people.

Email me if you would like a copy of any of the photos.
