Hampshire sports event photographer. Marwell 10K Running Race and Fun Run Photos

Today I attended the Marwell 10K running race and Fun Run, hosted by Eastleigh Running Club. You can view their main website here: There is a link on their home page through to the Marwell 10K. I was the official photographer for the event on 23rd May 2010 for around the 6th consecutive year. It was their annual 10K ‘road’ running race and Fun Run.
The event website is here: and you can see a ‘Race Roundup’ if you are interested. The members and volunteers from Eastleigh running club, lead by Deb Tyler, do a fantastic job at this race, in my view.

We had very warm, fairly sunny and bright conditions and I managed to capture a good selection of images around the course and near to the finish area.

I photographed at around 2K and also about 400m before the finish area and was able to capture images of the vast majority of runners as they sprinted down the hill into the Wildlife Park.

The location for this 10K and childrens fun run is truly unique. The event is supported by the staff at the Wildlife Park, many of whom were running in the event. A couple of the runners are known to me as their wedding and events coordinators from Marwell Hall. Yes – you can get married at Marwell too!!
You can view their website here:
Now in its 11th year, the money raised from the event for the Wildlife Park (many of the runners raise sponsorship monies for it) will go towards Marwell’s ongoing work to conserve endangered species and habitats, both locally and internationally, and to care for and feed the animals in the park. So it is also a race with a great cause.

You can view all (1400!!) images of this and other such recent events at my website: where I host my events and other (mainly wedding) photography. A couple are shown here just to illustrate my role on the day. Well done to all the runners who took part on the day from me.

The images will be available for viewing and sale to the runners very soon, typically within 24 hours of each event.
