Shropshire Event Photographer – Grocontinental Relay at Dearnford Lake, Hosted By Whitchurch Whippets Running Club
5th Annual Event at Dearnford Lake
This is the fifth year I have been a Shropshire Event Photographer on behalf of the Whitchurch Whippets. It is lovely to see regular faces who support the event, far and local. Teams consist of running/athletic clubs, groups of family or friends, work colleagues and other clubs.
We experienced another wonderful summer’s evening for this event (beautiful warm, golden light – photographer’s dream!). I am delighted to be part of it at one of my favourite local venues for a walk and a coffee!
The Whitchurch Whippets organise this event so well. This year again was to full capacity. Last year I believe it was 116 teams! It is a very popular off-road course, team of three and approximately a 2 mile loop around Dearnford Lake and the surrounding fields and woodland to keep the route exciting!
Before the race kicks of I love going around getting some team photos. When the race starts I get myself into couple of spots to keep an eye on the runners who are looking promising for winning positions. Getting in on the action in the exchange box its really exciting as everyone is swopping over and also capturing the expressions of the supporters!
Overall the evening is great event and it brings all abilities together. Supporters and communities in Whitchurch come in the masses and I love being a Shropshire Event Photographer for it.
At the end of the photo collection, you will see the winners of the event with their awards and the ladies team have won it for the fifth year running!
