This past Saturday marked the 16th running of the Muddy Sneaker Trail Race at Hi Tor Wildlife Management Area. Once again, the crew at Goose Adventure Racing didn't disappoint. Between the great Saucony and SmartWool sponsorship, a solid turn-out, and perfect conditions you couldn't ask for better--and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to head down to shoot the event.
Because I know the course, being able to shoot the handful of sections that I wanted to capture was a challenge. Given that some of the spots were as far apart as possible via challenging terrain, simply running my way around the course didn't seem feasible. So, for the first time, I decided to use a mountain bike to traverse sections of the course in order to get to my locations and set up before the runners did. I am not sure why I hadn't thought of that before, but I will certainly do it again!
I consider this race the kick-off event for the season, and with how fantastic it was I am really looking forward to what the rest of the year has in store.
A few of my favorites from the day.
