From Beginning To End

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and many thanks for your much appreciated votes and comments on my previous 'Pretty Muddy Race For Life' images and of course, all those wonderful UA's, THANK YOU! Smile
Today I thought I'd give you a better idea of the bigger picture of this amazing event taking in almost all of the obstacles along the way. We begin with the warm up session then the actual start of the race where Pink smoke almost chocked everyone before they had hardly started, through to the exhausting finish. Hope you enjoy and I hope that maybe some of you lovely Ladies out there , will be encouraged to take part in this 'none Government' sponsored event. next year.

All the best to all,

John Smile

Well done to all - most seemed to enjoy the activities but in V.14 shock and horror seems to be the reaction.

What is so nice to see is that for 'a race' they are all helping each other and most look really happy.(there are some lovely smiles in there!) If they organised mens races where the attitude was the same as the ladies, I would certainly give it a go, but I imagine the mens version would be way too competetive.

Do you attend 'officially' or just for the fun?

Hats off to them all, like one t shirt logo states 'Cancer we're coming to get you'.

Splendid reportage, John, very atmospheric (as an event, I mean, not just the pink smoke!). Needs to be viewed as an entire sequence ather than singling out individual images.

Thanks for your comment Dave and no, I just attend for both the fun of it and also to highlight the event. I agree with what you say about a 'Men's' event but the Word 'Race' is very loosely used here but of course, it's always a very fit and professional looking type who actually does cross the line first Smile

This all goes to show that even suffering can be fun in a good cause.

And that dropping some of one's inhibitions is a really, really good thing.

Quite apart from the fundraising, this is incredibly life-affirming.

I love V5 in particular depicting good health, youth and beauty with the serious reminder behind this event how that can all change. So many have been saved by breast cancer awareness. I'm glad men are becoming better at highlighting testicular cancer too.
