All images from the 2010 Go Beyond Ultra Mud and Mayhem Off Road Duathlon at Thetford Forest have now been removed.
The second Mud and Mayhem event took place at Mayday Picnic area in Thetford Forest. The setting was similar to before without the snow blizzard! The perfect spring weather must have been a welcome change to those that remember the last event. Although I quite like the forest coated in frost and snow! Its probably not much fun to sprint and cycle on. So it was nice to see the large turnout for this Sunday’s event, with many more people there was a great atmosphere and competitive spirit. The event was great fun to photograph and the forest provided a lush backdrop to the images.
Must remember to try some of the Go Beyond Fruit Cake next time!!
12 days to go until the Thetford Mud and Mayhem event on the 21st March 2010. I will be photographing this race and making images available after at Alex Orrow’s Event galleries. Previous images from last month can be seen here also. Looking forward to my second visit and capturing more action.
Images from this event are now no longer available.
Go Beyond’s Mud and Mayhem off road Duathlon was as you would expect a little like that, except without the mayhem the whole event was very well organised! For instance free tea, coffee and jelly babies were my points of interest. The event began with heavy snowfall and then almost continuous rain throughout in freezing temperatures. I did keep warm by running between the cycle and running sections of the event but I still could not get ahead of the very fittest. It was great to meet some of the competitors and see them all in action, especially those who were competing for the first time. I am looking forward to returning in March at the second Mud and Mayhem event.
All the photographs were shot as RAW using D3s with either 80-200mm f2.8 or 24-70mm f2.8 with KATA rain jacket. Processed and uploaded to PS using Lightroom. To see all the images from the event hit the slideshow above.
I will attending the Go Beyond ‘Mud and Mayhem Off Road Duathlon’ on the 21 February 2010 at Thetford Forest, on behalf of Tri-Athletes World Magazine. Photographing competitors during the event. Images will be available to view online after on my client gallery http://ow.ly/18CDo
