Super Hero's

By lifesnapper  
Hi all and a big thank you for all your fun comments and lovely votes on my 'Partly Covered Sign' yesterday, very much appreciated Wink
Today is the beginning of my images from this Year's 'Pretty Muddy Race For Life' event that took place in Mote Park, Maidstone a few Weeks back. As with all of my Race For Life images over the Year's ( Check out my Album's if you missed them) it's more about promoting the event rather than Photographic merit and on this particular Day the lighting was so bad with ever changing degrees of Grey and Black Cloud going on, making it difficult to use my 70-300 Lens but I had made my mind up before hand to get some really close up action shot's this Year while avoiding getting hampered by the Thousands of people there plus of course, the MUD! Smile
These Women put themselves through a great deal of nasty obstacles along the way and each of them doing it for particular Family member's or Friends who are battling with Cancer. However, these super hero's do have a lot of fun along the way as well as having to run while weighed down with Mud and Water including soaking wet Trainer's on their Feet.
If any of you Ladies wish to get involved next Year, you can enter online via the 'Race For Life' web site or follow the Link via the Tesco's site.
I hope you enjoy these images which show the very clean start and very muddy finish. Smile and a very BIG well done to all who took part.

All the best all,


P.S. View LARGE for maximum Mud !

Third time trying to leave a comment.

Every single photograph you have take of these wonderful lasses is so good, its hard to choose a favourite.
Well done to the ladies and to you for making a great record of the event.
