The Hand-over II

By saltireblue    
Some may remember the original Hand-over. Here is the follow-up, taken earlier this year during the Sunderland half-marathon. Due to a combination of photographic duties and being a dutiful and attentive guest for our hosts, I was unfortunately unable to actively participate in the event this year...better luck next time, perhaps.

Many thanks for all the interest in, and comments on my previous upload - I admit to having just a slightly bad conscious at the attempt to fool people with the photographic equivalent of Fake News. Those who deserve apologies have received them...

Many thanks for bothering.

The runner is already on auto-pilot, flying blind as it were. Maybe it's as well neither he nor we can tell what colour liquid is being handed to him.
A cool image, Malc, taken on a cool day if I remember Smile

We'll book you a place for next year.
All I remember of this bit is the b****y steel band that was playing in the runners' honour. I guess it served to speed them up if they were slacking...

Firing at 14fps was almost certain to get one timed right, John.Wink
