Now in only its second year, the London Landmarks Half Marathon is already a blazing success with participants and supporters alike. Owned and organised by the Tommy’s charity it also provides opportunity for other charities like the brilliant MS Society to get involved and raise money through their own supporters.
This was my second year photographing the half marathon for the MS Society and you can already feel the growth of the event. The crowds were bigger and buzzier this year. The number of runners had increased and the atmosphere was amazing. It didn’t harm that the weather was beautiful and Spring-like. Shooting running events like this is one of my principal skills and a little part of what bonds me to the art of photography. Capturing split-second, frozen moments of joy and determination always brings me pleasure and hopefully does the same for those caught in the frame!
