The Arc of Attrition

February 11, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Here we are once more, the third year running, at the Mud Crew Arc of Attrition weekend. 100 winter miles of running around the coast path from Coverack to Porthtowan; one of the toughest races of its kind in the UK. I've yet to savour it's delights as a runner but have filmed, photographed and marshalled the last two years. This year the works on my house looked set to keep me away but I managed to get down to the coast for a couple of hours and see everyone through the first leg. 

Well, almost everyone. The lead runners ran past as I was coming down the road in my car on the outskirts of Porthleven, on their way to a new course record. 

I walked from the Loe bar car park to Gunwalloe fishing cove, shooting as I went, only turning back as the sun dipped below the horizon and to my horror I realised I'd come out without my headtorch!

As I had a bit of time to kill I headed over to rinsey on the way to pick up my girls from guides and got a long exposure of some of the runners coming through before getting back to my nice warm house. Funny to think the competitors would be running still as I got up and, for many would be out there till late on the Saturday evening. Tough stuff.

These are my favourites, the full set are available should anyone want hi-res copies or prints - here
