You can’t run very far in Run Waterloo without having a camera in your face.
Our paparazzi is friendly, and they capture some amazing memories that all all free to use. Through the first four Stages of ENDURrun 2017, our photographers have posted over 3,000 photos to Flickr. Here’s what you need to know about them.
Who is taking my photos?
Our photo team is led by Julie Schmidt. At ENDURrun, Julie and Jeff Wemp are the main photographers you see out there.
Where do the photos go?
We have hundreds of thousands of photos on our Flickr page, going back two years. (Our archive of a decade of Picasa photos are being restored to Flickr, slowly.)
They are super easy to find right from results.runwaterloo.com. When the photo album is ready, a little camera icon will appear in the main list of events, and on each results page (see below).
What can I do with these photos?
Please feel free to use them however you wish. We ask that you credit the photographer (name tagged in Flickr) if you want to. If you want to use a photo for commercial purposes, please contact us first. Photos are easy to share from the Flickr app to social media, and anyone can download photos (even without a Flickr account).
Do I need a Flickr account?
To browse and download photos, no. An account will give you other abilities, such as upload notifications and the ability to tag photos (below).
What else can I do with photos?
We have built in some cool features to our results site that get the most out of the event photos. Anyone with a Flickr account can tag photos (with bib number), and the crowdsourced tagged photos are linked directly to names in the results. (See image below and read more about how this works.)
If you’ve got some free time tonight, why not check out the albums from Stages 1-4 and drop a few tags!
What about video?
Where we take finish line video, we also tag that in the results as well.
What if I need a photo removed?
If you want a photo of your removed, or a tag of you removed, please contact us – we’re happy to help.
