this is such a beautiful street shot. .. my favourite kind of photograph. Very spontaneous and natural with the pair in the foreground with two persons of different generations conveying a great message. The light and the colours are superb.
Thanks for sharing and have a great new week ahead.

haha...yes, the Vancouver Marathon was held today too.
although it was raining.
in your photo its funny to see the arrows on the ground pointing the opposite direction of the runners :)
good to get the full sign in, nice work.
I'll be in Athens/Santorini in mid-may. Don't know the exact dates yet though :)
I can let you know as the dates get closer.

Ahh, these two runners are bonding and helping one another out, at these runs it is amazing the interaction, support and overall getting together and on with our fellow human-beings.

πήρες και εσύ μέρος στον μισό Μαραθώνειο.Πρέπει να έιναι καλή εμπειρία να προσπαθήσει κάποιος να τρέξει έστω και τα μισά χιλιόμετρα της κλασσικής απόστασης.
Ωραίο το στιγμιότυπο,με το αγκάλιασμα των δύο αθλητών να είναι όλο το απαύγασμα του αθλητισμού.

A nice shot which shows that enjoyment and friendship is sometimes more important than victory of a competition. It's great to see those two men, one young and one elderly, finishing the race together this way. The crowds of people provide colourful surroundings.

On dirait bien qu'il y en a un qui a besoin d'aide pour terminer son marathon.J'aime beaucoup le côté documentaire de la composition ainsi que la ligne d'arrivée à l'horizon.

A really nice daily life moment and even more so with the great sportsmanship as these two friends support each other towards the finish line, showing very well that is not where you finish, but how you finish that is important. Very nice scene, thanks as always

Good to see many other places participate in jogging races. Marathons in the U.S. are very popular in almost every metropolis, and the races are usually more about exercising and participating, rather than running the fastest.
Thanks for sharing,

Une belle photo, le cadrage est intéressant avec ces deux coureurs qui s'entraide;

μια εικόνα που μου αρέσει και με συγκινεί πολύ. Μια φωτεινή και αισιόδοξη εικόνα στην οποία περγράφεις αποτελεσμάτικά το χώρο, το γεγονός και μια ευχάριστη ανθρώπινη στιγμή που μεταδίδει αισιοδοξία. Θαυμάσιο το καδράρισμα και το βάθος, εξαιρετική καθαρότητα και υπέροχο το αττικό φως που τυλίγει τα πάντα. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καληνύχτα,

They're all running the wrong direction, didn't they see the arrows pointing the way? :) The thought of running even as far as the street corner makes me tired, so I applaud anyone that can perform the course. A terrific shot you captured here with these two participants running with arms around each other in support. This really gives a true ideal to the event and a sense of friendship. Very well timed and composed. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Love the camaraderie. Don't know who is supporting who!
Wonderful street shot. Crisp and clear.
PS: I am here after almost a month away from TE (for unavoidable reasons), am glad to see your photos again.

Excellent snapshot from Athen's Marathon run. I like your viewpoint and the overall arrangement showing not only the finish gate but also some runners approaching it, and spectators around it.
Very well done.

Beautiful photo from the Olympic city :))
I think these two men should get marathon medals for perseverance
Have a nice day

That makes me want to go out there and go jogging again, something I used to do almost everyday some four years ago! Now, I'm totally sedentary!
An attractive and inviting picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, chosen pov, horizontal format and composition really pleased me!
TFS - congrats,
Enjoy your Sunday,
