The Quad Cities Marathon – the Video


The Quad Cities Marathon

Last year I was fortunate to be asked to photograph the finish line activity at a truly great sports event. Imagine PixelCraft has more than 1100 images taken at last year’s Quad Cities Marathon. This video is a compilation of some from the 2009 Quad Cities Marathon. The 12th Annual Quad Cities Marathon was an unqualified success. A USATF certified course and Boston Marathon qualifier, the marathon is held annually in September. Henry Kipsang and Buzunesh Deba placed first in the men’s and women’s divisions. It was perfect running weather and a great day all around.
