Plymouth's half marathon got a rebrand this year as Britain's Ocean City Half Marathon 2017.We enjoyed shooting last years run and headed out to capture the participants again. It was a lovely day for it and over 3000 runners took part. Photographing sport here in Plymouth is as important to us as documenting the music and art scenes. In an event like this it is very obvious, but sport as a force for good in the community is there at all levels. A great deal of money was raised for charity and people got the opportunity to challenge themsleves and fufill goals. Congratulations to all who took part.

St George's Day always brings out the Morris Dancers here in Plymouth and our own group The Old Town Twelves invited Dartmoor Border Morris and Isambard's Gasket Rats to dance on Plymouth's historic Barbican (outside the legendary Dolphin Pub) on Plymouth Hoe and then the Fisherman's arms to celebrate England (and a few other's) patron saint. We have shot the local Morris teams before with the members having such close connections with the folk music scene. You can see one of our favourite shoots last year with them here
