The weather could not have been better for today’s marathon at Haileybury College in aid of The Muscle Help Foundation.
I first became involved in this event last year when I stepped in at the last moment to cover the races – a 10K, 5K and 1K “toddle” for children.
The first must-have photo opportunity is the warm up in which contestants are taken through a warm up routine to prepare for the race.
The presence of a nearby fire escape gave me the perfect vantage point to capture a nice wide view of the warm up, with an excellent backdrop of marquees and a well tended cricket pitch.
The race begins shortly after the warm-up and takes in a course that covers a variety of surfaces, including tarmac, grass and footpaths.

At the weekend I was invited to photograph a charity event to raise funds and awareness for local charity The Muscle Help Foundation. The Run For Their Lives event at Haileybury College featured a series of short marathons, starting with a 10km run, following by a 5km run and 1km toddle for children dressed in superhero costumes.
I covered the start of each race as well as taking photos along the route and at the finish line.
On completing the race, runners were presented with a medal and goodie bag.
As well as photographing the main event I’m always keen to take in other elements that characterise the day.
Runners were able to take advantage of trainers following the races.
