    KJFK 5k Runway Run 4/14/13

    What treat it was to be out on RWY 22L this morning! Good seeing everyone out there.
    Here are a couple of quick captures before I start processing.


    A special landing 31R crossing over 22L. (You go Mark! ;)

    We were threatened with removal by bus at the end if we kept stopping :-)

    Nice shot of the spotters and that B6 incoming. I love the feel. What post filter did you use? Topaz?

    Don .... i ran two different filters using Topaz .... First filter was a Dramatic Filter and the second I believe was a Shadows Filter.

    Oh trust me, by the end, they were definitely chasing us. The last mile or so, if we so much as stopped one of the airport ops workers was honking at us. To be honest though, most of the PA and PAPD crew were pretty welcoming. But the one that kept pushing us along starting just before the halfway point seemed a bit overzealous.

    It was great seeing everybody out there, seeing some old faces and meeting some new ones in person. Great shots so far guys!

    This was organized by the JFK Rotary Club and sponsored by some airlines. PA had not much to do with the organization or event other than providing security and allowing it :)

    I'm sure this is just a small list, but online registration for this event was through active.com. A quick search of "runway" in running events around the world gave a bunch of results. Keep a look out, you definitely might find something.
