2004 Long Beach Inline Marathon
Photos by Kathie Fry
I took about 1000 photos at the 2004 Long Beach Marathon
including photos of the racing action,
skaters crossing the finish line, skaters receiving their awards,
skaters at the vendor expo before the race, and skaters hanging
out after the race. This weekend (October 14-17) I will be
at Chris Edwards "Monsters of Roll" event at Camp Woodward West,
but I will finish posting my Long Beach photos after I return.0
Skaters Racing About 5 Miles into the Marathon
500 photos of skaters approaching and turning a corner at a spot that I think
is about 5 miles into the course. I
did get a few photos of the pro packs passing by, but my best pictures
from that location are of the non-pro marathon skaters, after I played
around a bit with the adjustments on my new camera.
I remained at that spot taking pictures until the last skater - who happened
to be an LA Derby Doll on quad roller skates - passed by.
Finish Line Photos
I have many, many photos of skaters crossing the finish
line from the very first top pro skaters to the very last
die-hard recreational skaters. I'm working on editing
those photos now and they will be posted soon.
Award Ceremony Photos
Pictures of most of the pro award and open division age group
awards presentations after the
2004 Long Beach Inline Marathon .
Vendor Expo Photos
I have a few photos of skaters hanging out at the
vendor expo and they will be published soon.
Skater Close-Ups and Group Photos
I have some beautiful new close-up photos of
individual skaters and several nice photos of
groups of skaters also. I will use some of these pictures
to create special bio pages at SkateLog.com
for those skaters.
