The Golden Ultra is offering all participants the opportunity to pre-purchase epic mountain running photos of themselves by some of the west's best photographers.
"The trails and views of Golden are simply unparalleled and we want to give participants the chance to have great photography to commemorate the event. Our goal is to have photos of runners that they want to print, frame and hang on their walls."
Golden Ultra event photographers will include:
Dave Best: Dave has been the preferred photographer of Tourism Golden for many years and has captured stills of the top events in Golden, including the Mt. 7 Psychosis and SingleTrack 6.
Darcy Monchak: Darcy specializes in wildlife and landscape photography but has dabbled very successfully in event photography, including the Canadian Masters cross country ski championships and the Canadian Eco-challenge championships.
Bruno Long: Bruno is regularly featured in mountain bike and ski publications and it’s no surprise why when you see his creativity and ability. Bruno is a trail runner himself and stoked to capture the runners and scenery of the Golden Ultra.
The photography package can be purchased for $20 as part of the online registration or at race package pick-up. Runners will be guaranteed a minimum of two photos of themselves on course and will receive one digital file for personal use.
The Golden Ultra photography team will be on course with their long lenses all three days of the event. They’ll use their intimate knowledge of the area to ensure the photography captures the most spectacular areas, so don’t forget to smile on the steep climbs... because they’re really photogenic!
The Golden Ultra is a three-day stage running race (or relay) in Golden, BC from September 18-20, 2015. Runners may participate in all three stages as a solo or as part of a relay, or may register for any single or combination of two stages separately.
