Derby 10k

Derby 10k

I’m normally up early on Sunday mornings for a run however the life of a commercial photographer is never routine. This  Sunday  I’ve been photographing the Derby 10k for Sporting Futures.  The race finishes in the iPro stadium as you can see from the photos it is a spectacular finish line.  It was a big race with 4000 runners taking part in the 10k event and a further 1000 in the 3k fun run.  I think also for the first time there was a wheelchair category.  There were at least two GB athletes competing in this, Phil Hogg who’s time was the quickest on the day and first over all to finish and Baroness “Tani” Grey-Thompson, DBE.  Here are few photos that represent the different aspects of this event . . .the serious athletes, fund raisers, the effort and pain and also the great fun of taking part and been involved.  (I’ve also just found out that there were 5000 + runners taking part in the 10k race (Wed 9th). Updated with a few more photos from the day
