I know this took way to long to post, the race was the first weekend in November, but I did want to share some race day photos from the New York City marathon this year. Once again I was lucky to photograph for a great organization, the Robin Hood Foundation, just past mile 20. Before we needed to report to our assigned location Jeff (my fellow photographer) and I took a bus down to Brooklyn to catch the first runners. We planned to hike it back up to the Bronx to the cheer zone just after the pro men leader came passed. As bad luck would have it when we made our subway transfer the 4-5-6 lines were out of commission due to some police investigation and the notice board gave not indication they would be running any time soon. You could see many out-of-town marathon fans wondering around looking for what to do next. Jeff and I went topside to catch a taxi but soon realized that the marathon course was all around the station locking us in. We dove back down into the station to look at the maps and see if there was an indirect route to our post. None to be had. But with a stoke of luck, while waiting on the 2 platform a 4 train arrived. Don’t know why and don’t know how. We boarded the express and was on our way. We arrived in the Bronx about ten minutes late, could have been a lot worse, and everyone with Robin Hood was happy to see us and very forgiving for our delay. We shot for the next three and a half hours at their cheer zone just past the 20 mile marker at a bend in the road. It is really great place to capture some good images of runners coming down the hill looking up at the large jumbotron screen and making the turn at the cheer zone. There are also a ton of port-o-johns and some massage stick operators for the runners. Here are some of the results. Hope you like.
