Grant Burton Photography (official photographer) will be on hand to photograph as many runners as possible, with high quality race photos available to purchase after the race. Not only do they make a great souvenir, your purchase supports our nominated charity.

To celebrate our tenth year running this event, we have produced a souvenir T-shirt which may be ordered via Nice Work.
