the Stockade welcomes Stockade-athon 2011

 . . . This posting has over 50 images of the 2011 Gazette Stockade-athon as the race passed through our historic Stockade neighborhood on a sunny autumn Sunday.   The top winners are listed after the slideshow.  [The Gazette has the complete list of the record 1603 finishers at page C5 of Monday’s newspaper; online here.] Those who like people-watching or are hoping to see their own faces can find 60 more photos in our post “more faces from Stockade-athon 2011“.

– lovely day for a run through the Stockade –

 The slideshow below begins with two dozen photos taken of the lead runners near Lawrence Circle, the half-way point of the 15K race — where the runners broke into bright sunshine from the shelter of tree-lined Front St.  A couple dozen more photos show runners, officials and spectators in shots that caught my eye.  If you’d like your image identified by name please leave me a comment describing the picture in question.  Apologies to all those runners who I was not quick enough to capture while you visited the Stockade.
