Wexford Half Marathon and 10KM Road Race 2013

The Wexford Half Marathon and 10KM Road Race and Fun Run was held in Wexford Town, Co. Wexford, Ireland at 10:30 and 10:40 on Sunday 21st April 2013. There was a huge attendance at this race. The weather didn't start off as the runners would have wished with very heavy April showers making for a wet start. However, these showers cleared and a bright sunny day greeted runners in both races for the finish.

 

We did not take part in this race but feedback from runners was very positive about the race overall.

 

This is a selection of photographs which includes: the start of both races, the finish of the 10KM and finishers of the half marathon until about 1:50 finishing time.

 

Timing was provided by Red Tag Timing.

 

Overall Race Summary

Participants: Approximately 1,000 people over both races (700 in the half marathon and over 300 in the 10KM)

Weather: Started off wet but both races finished with dry sunny weather.

Course: A very well marshalled course around the town of Wexford and surrounding areas.

Refreshments: There was water, bananas and soup & rolls at the finish.

Timing: Both races 10KM and Half Marathon were electronically timed using chip timing provided by RedtagTiming (www.redtagtiming.com/).

How can I get a full resolution copy of these photographs?

 

All of the photographs here on this Flickr set have a visible watermark embedded in them. All of the photographs posted here on this Flickr set are available, free, at no cost, at full resolution WITHOUT watermark. We take these photographs as a hobby and as a contribution to the running community in Ireland. We do not know of any other photographers who operate such a policy. Our only "cost" is our request that if you are using these images: (1) on social media sites such as Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, Twitter,LinkedIn, Google+, Google Orkut etc or (2) other websites, web multimedia, commercial/promotional material that you provide a link back to our Flickr page to attribute us. This also means the use of these images for Facebook profile pictures. In these cases please make a wall post with a link to our Flickr page. If you do not know how this should be done for Facebook or other media please email us and we will be happy to help suggest how to link to us.

 

Please email petermooney78 AT gmail DOT com with the links to the photographs you would like to obtain a full resolution copy of. We also ask race organisers, media, etc to ask for permission before use of our images for flyers, posters, etc. We reserve the right to refuse a request.

 

In summary please remember - all we ask is for you to link back to our Flickr set or Flickr pages. We are not posting photographs to Flickr for commercial reasons. If you really like what we do please spread the link around, send us an email, leave a comment beside the photographs, send us a Flickr email, etc.

 

I ran the race - but my photograph doesn't appear here in your Flickr set!

 

As mentioned above we take these photographs as a hobby and as a voluntary contribution to the running community in Ireland. Very often we have actually ran in the same race and then switched to photographer mode after we finished the race. Consequently, we have no obligations to capture a photograph of every participant in the race. However, we do try our very best to capture as many participants as possible. But this is sometimes not possible for a variety of reasons:

 

    You were hidden behind another participant as you passed our camera

    Weather or lighting conditions meant that we had some photographs with blurry content which we did not upload to our Flickr set

    There were too many people - some races attract thousands of participants and as amateur photographs we cannot hope to capture photographs of everyone

    We simply missed you - sorry about that - we did our best!

  

You can email us petermooney78 AT gmail DOT com to enquire if we have a photograph of you which didn't make the final Flickr selection for the race. But we cannot promise that there will be photograph there. As alternatives we advise you to contact the race organisers to enquire if there were (1) other photographs taking photographs at the race event or if (2) there were professional commercial sports photographers taking photographs which might have some photographs of you available for purchase. You might find some links for further information above.

 

If you want to contribute something for these images?

We do not charge for these images. We take these photographs as our contribution to the running community in Ireland. If you feel that the image(s) you request are good enough that you would ordinarily pay for their purchase we would suggest that you can provide a donation to any of the great charities in Ireland who do work for Cancer Care or Cancer Research in Ireland.

 

Don't like your photograph here?

That's OK! We understand!

 

If, for any reason, you are not happy or comfortable with your picture appearing here in this photoset on Flickr then please email us at petermooney78 AT gmail DOT com and we will remove it as soon as possible.
