20 Kilomètres de Paris

On a recent visit to Paris, I was lucky enough to be walking along the banks of the Seine on the same day the annual 20 Kilomètres de Paris was being held. This was the 35th time the event has been run and it was certainly an impressive sight – 23878 runners of varying athletic abilities all making their way along one of the most picturesque rivers in the world.

The winner of the 2013 event was Tebalu Zawude of Ethiopia in a time of 58 minutes and 7 seconds. The fastest woman was Sarah Chepchirchir of Kenya in a time of 1 hour 5 minutes and 3 seconds. Congratulations to all who ran in this event!

While I didn’t get to see the elite athletes during the run, I did manage to capture some of the other runners making their way along the river bank.

About Ken

Photography is about vision; I love making photographs that tell a location’s story – the place, the people and the culture. I'm a photographer with a relaxed approach. I'm an experienced traveller and love teaching others about photography. Images can be made anywhere - right in your back yard or in exotic overseas locations. I can teach you not only to look at your surroundings, but also to really "see" what's there. Photography is more than just pressing a button. It's also about vision. Let me show you how to explore your world.
