10km start - kampala international marathon

  1. now here's a standard race start photo. i'm jealous of the tv cameraman's spot in the crane, it would have been great to get above this crowd. yellow to the horizon. it was 5 minutes+ before everyone even made it across the start.

    the race mc committed the cardinal sin of a mass-start race-starter. he announced that he was going to count down to the start from 5. of course, as soon as the "f" of five was out of his mouth, the entire crowd took off like a shot.

    you can see some blue gloves on a couple of the racers (both women here, though i think that's coincidence). ebola is a big scare here now, and there were a number of people around wearing latex gloves.
