Kendal Triathlon route anyone?

I had hoped to get down to take pics at this event next weekend, so I e-mailed the organisers and asked for details of the route on public roads. I also asked if there was a pro-tog booked to avoid treading on his toes. I got the reply "sorry we have our own photographer".

I still fancy a go at this but was wondering if anyone had been there and knew the route before I tried e-mailing them again.

Wouldn't bother emailing them again, as they obviously have things covered. However, if part of it is on the public road, you can take shots. Try this site, as you may be able to find the route British Triathlon Federation

Re: Kendal Triathlon route anyone?

Thanks as always Sarah. Thing is I cannot find any pro-togs with pics of the events. Will do my own thing and see what comes of it.

EDIT: found a site with pics of the Triathlons. http://www.richard-walsh.co.uk/
Does not appear to be a pro though.

Re: Kendal Triathlon route anyone?

Alot of photographers aren't pro's, myself included, it's just a hobby gone a bit overboard in my case Starts with photo's of hubby on a bike and spirals a wee bit!

Here are a few I've found for you.

Cheers Sarah,

That is just where I am. If I can pick up a few pennies to help finance the hobby then that will do me just fine.

Still no luck with that route though. LOL a mystery tour.

Re: Kendal Triathlon route anyone?

Might be worth joining the triathalon forum and asking, you can always then post a link afterwards if someone replies to your question Might get you some views and maybe sales.

Re: Kendal Triathlon route anyone?

Found the route.

Last client of the day asked if it was me taking pics at Cockermouth. Conversation led on and he e-mailed it ot me last night. He also took a load of business cards and promised to pass on my site details to all and sundry.

It is a one road route. Out and back the same way. Into very scenic lanes and probably plenty of places to grab shots. Those I miss going out I can catch on the way back. A chance for panning and 3/4 low shots of most I hope.

Re: Kendal Triathlon route anyone?

That should work well for you, I like out and back courses. You can go for head on shots as they come towards you on the way out and then panning shots on the way back. As you are panning from the opposite side of the road, you then get the side of the bike most cyclists want to see in shots, the chain ring side, they can also look at them to check their position on the bike.
