Our photo philosophy:

  • If you are a runner, volunteer, or spectator, we encourage you to send us your photos! Contact us and we will send you a link to upload them to the correct year.
  • We bring together a group of volunteer photographers who enjoy capturing the day in pictures.
  • This special group gives their time and expertise to the runners who are encouraged to download, print, and post to Facebook their favorite photos from the day.
  • We or the photographers do not charge for the photos for personal use.
  • For business or commercial use we ask that you contact us for permission and rates.
  • For press use we also would like you to get permission. We also ask you to send us the link to the article that one or more of our photos is used in.

If you really love one of the photos of you, a friend, or a family member, our photographers would love to hear your feedback — you can send it to us via the Contact us form and we will pass it on to them.

If you are interested in helping our ongoing photographic documentation of the Leatherman’s Loop (and other local races) please contact us — we’d love to have you join the team.
