Sheffield Half Marathon 2019-2

 

More of the leading pack coming through - one of these guys finished second, and the winner of the women's race (Phillipa Williams, a GP from Rotherham, in a time of 1:17:27) is tucked in behind them.  There was a very good turnout for the event - 6034 runners!

Very cool shot!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Beth.
it is challenging shooting runners, especially since most of them start early morning (at least in Singapore), when it is still rather dark. towards the finish, it does get considerably brighter though.
Tom Wilson: Sunrise would be about 5.50 a.m. on this day, so no problem with the lighting - in fact, it was a bit too bright!
Good shot Tom, I've never been a distance runner, I envy people who are.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Frank - it was the only thing that kept me sane as head of a department in the university, dealing with the idiocies of the Thatcher years!

i always love seeing shots like this

all of our children were runners
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Sherri - my past running is probably why I'm still reasonably fit smile
Great to watch them! And a really good shot!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Elizabeth.

They all look super fit to me Tom
Tom Wilson: These guys are probably all going to finish in under 1 hr 20m - you've got to be fit to do that!

Team running is a good idea Tom.
Tom Wilson: Yes, helps one along!
Number 8402 is feeling his endorphins.
Looks like four of them are running as a team, at least at this stage of the race.
