|9.00 a.m. - all ready for the event|
According to the event link, the race would start at 9.30 a.m from @ Bristol. So, there I was, perched on the window, ready with my Samsung. A large crowd had also assembled along the harbourside to cheer the contestants.
Moments before the race, a lone wheelchair athlete whizzed through, signalling the race was about to start. When the spectators started to cheer and clap loudly, I knew that the contestants were coming!
|Here they come!|
|The first wave of runners|
|Go! Go! Go!|
|They came in droves!|
|Full speed ahead!!|
|All the way to Portway and then back again|
There were some colourful characters...
|Sponge-Bob was running for Ella :)|
|Going bananas! :)|
|An unidentified cape crusader :)|
|tutu and fro for a cause :)|
'Gromit', 'Yogi Bear', 'Roadrunner' and an alligator, unfortunately, escaped from being 'captured' by my smartphone! Huh!
The runners started from @ Bristol, ran through Hotwell Road up to Portway, before turning and heading back to @Bristol via Cumberland Road. No end-of-race pictures from moi, though. Too busy finding out about election results :)
