‘Dead battery’ was a recurring theme at this year’s race – microphone, camera and timing clock. Luckily the timing mat had power but with no functioning timing clock, the first six finishers photos didn’t show a finishing time in the image. But through the magic of Photoshop, Wolf Eilers–thank you, Wolf!–added the finishing times to these photos....
Photographers have knarly injuries too. Salvador slipped while taking a better position for fast approaching runners, scrapped his leg bloody and his camera lens hit a rock. Leg will heal. Camera lens not so lucky and now “limping”. 🙁 Salvador Miranda (Knee Knacker veteran) race day photos from 400 metres east of Panorama Park are here.
The rock slab below Eagle Bluffs is one of the steep sections to Black Mountain. Thank you for your smiles as you nimbly traverse up this pitch. Apologizes to Laura, Clive and Marc who missed their photo moment when the camera battery died. 🙁 Karen Chow’s race day photos from the rock slab are here.
Veaw Cox’s race day photos from Panorama Park (around the Finish Line area) are here. The Finishers photo gallery will be posted soon.
Spectacular views and enthuastic Knee Knackerers with a scattering of bugs summed up the experience on Eagle Bluffs on Race day. Herman Kwong (Knee Knacker veteran) race day photos from Eagle Bluffs are here. Note: To ensure he arrived before the first runners, Herman started his hike to Eagle Bluffs at 4:45am!
Pat Malaviarachchi (Knee Knacker veteran) race day photos from Brothers Creek (Hollyburn Chute) are here.
