The Paint Runner 2016

This is the 3rd year I have shot this great fun event. Always lots of fun and a great atmosphere.

This year I think there were 1600 entrants. I know for sure the new long queue was LONG anyway! Kick off was delayed a little this year though it felt like once off it was over quicker. Maybe the entrants are fitter!

There is a cart album of images here:

The Paint Runner 2014

This Saturday, 1000 runners took part in The Paint Runner 2014, a charity event to raise money for St Michael’s Hospice.

This was a cause close to my family’s heart, as I lost my father to cancer recently and he spent his last days being cared for by St Michael’s Hospice. Both my daughters took part, as did one of their boyfriends and two cousins.

I went along to capture some of the day.

The event was a 3 mile run/walk around Hereford, passing through 5 paint stations, where they were covered in coloured paint powder. A few images below show the scale of the paint cloud!

A great day was had by all, and I believe £20,000+ was raised for the charity.
