2013 Rachel Carson Trail Challenge {Pittsburgh Sports & Event Photographers}

We had a BLAST photographing the Rachel Carson Trail Challenge.  For those of you that don’t know what that is, it’s a GRUELING 35-mile trail challenge traversing the hills of the Pittsburgh area.  The run/hike must be completed by sunset.  Start sunrise, finish by sunset.  What a feat!!!!!

Thanks to all the hikers and trail runners we encountered on Saturday – you all are superstars!!!!  Congrats on even attempting such a challenge.  Kudos, props to you, hooray!!! 🙂

I am always impressed with those I meet during the challenge.  As a hiker myself, I think the hiking community is one of the most friendliest I’ve come across.  I can’t tell you how many hikers THANKED us for being out there taking pictures.  I was trying to give them encouragement or make a joke or two to lighten the mood as they made their way up those hills but to hear them thank me was humbling.  Much love to you all!!!!

I covered Rich Hill, Tony covered Log Cabin Hill and then I stopped at Bailey’s Run to grab some photos.  Here are links to the albums on our online storage site.

I have loaded some pictures to our Facebook page (link below) – feel free to tag yourself in any pictures loaded.  I obviously can’t load 1,400 pictures to Facebook but I’ve selected a few that I enjoy.  If there is a picture in our online site that you’d like to see on Facebook, please message us and I’d be happy to put it on for you.
