What’s In A Running Photo?

That’s a good question! Those who attend races know that at some point you are going to have your photo taken. We don’t always know when that’s going to happen or sometimes the camera is right in front of us. You finish your race, celebrate and then a day or two later remember a photo should be waiting.

You check your email for the notification, double check the website and BAM…..there’s your photo. Only it didn’t turn out the way you had imagined. I’ve got a handful of those – actually most of my race photo’s are horrible…ha ha! However, I recently entered a contest where you had to submit a photo of you reading Canadian Running Magazine’s recent publication. Since I have a subscription anyway…I had already read the entire thing.

The contest is for a LIFE TIME registration {Yes, you read that correctly – LIFE TIME} to Maritime Race Weekend’s Tartan Twosome (double race). This is what I submitted:

“Read Canadian Running Magazine on MRW, must start training to avoid injuries”

Piper's Run MRW Contest

Though I didn’t win the contest, I love having these photo’s taken by my running buddy! She did an amazing job…all I did was run back and forth, back and forth…back and forth 🙂 A few more for you…..

Gotta run…

Do you have good race photos?

Ever enter a contest like this?

Do you ever wish you had a personal photography along all your good runs?

  1. Those are great. I like the idea of submitting your own photo. Mine are usually pretty bad in races. I think the best one I have is when I had to be helped across the finish line of my 2nd marathon. It captured an overwhelming moment for me. But really most of the photos taken by the professionals don’t turn out the way I had hoped. Probably why I don’t buy them. 😉

    • Wow, sounds like your 2nd marathon was an interesting finish! I love these photos and they are far better than any race photo I’ve ever seen. Though I do appreciate race photo’s, I’ve yet to find one I would purchase!

  2. I had some really good race photos from the beginning of the RW half. The finish? Not so much. I pretty much expect awful race photos with weird faces and appearing as though I will fall over at any minute….
    looks like you had a great time taking the pics!
