A perfectly beautiful morning for the Manitoba Marathon! The enthusiasm and excitement that takes place at 7am is electric with over 13,000 participants in the race and countless volunteers who work so hard to make everything run so smoothly. The large inflatable starting gates are staggered on two streets that allow the different categories to start in separate waves and ensures everything is safe and efficient. We were especially pleased the sun was shining this morning to give our film a boost with lighting even though the heat is not ideal for running in it seemed like the temperature was not too over bearing for the runners this year. We had a grand adventure of waking up early to capture this event which is a two part project for us. We produced this highlight of the event to go online the same day to promote and celebrate another successful fund raising year and the second part of the project is for their school tours prior to next years event.
