New sport, new challenges - BMW Frankfurt Marathon

With BMW having just assumed the lead sponsorship for a variety of running events in Germany, the Frankfurt Marathon, now in it's 30th year, was one of the highlights of the season for this sport. The speed of the lead group over such a distance was flat out amazing - the fastest runner missed breaking the world record by just 3 seconds!

My assignment was to accompany a relay team made up of BMW senior management over portions of the race.
Operating and getting to places amongst over 20.000 runners was a bit of a logistical challenge, but with proper planning it was possible. 

The red carpet finish in the Festhalle, fully lit and with lots of excitement in the air, made for a special atmosphere, which was fun to capture and experience.
