Made a few more newbie mistakes but getting good feedback from the runners which is all that really matters. High ISO and noise.... took meter reading in wooded section at start then neglected to change it for brighter setting.

"How would you grab their attention for the money shot?"

The first few will pay attention as you are thrown out for interfering with the race.

If you can't photograph without interfering you don't belong there. Anything you do to distract the participants will be interfering.

Just because you are invited does not mean they can't dump your ass when you interfere.

Yes, it happens.

Wait til your interference gets a participant injured. You do have liability insurance, right?

You may be reading too much into the title rather than the actual content of the thread.
I DO understand what you are saying ... but that situation is not applying here.

Have a great day :-)

I have volunteered to photograph a weekly 5k run.

Having watched videos of previous events the finish line always looks the same with runners heads down checking time on their watch.

How would you grab their attention for the money shot?

If only they were dogs who can't see the squeaker taped to back of camera lol

I've done Parkrun. Never had a problem with runners looking my way, but I don't do the finish. Find another place to shoot from. Sit low. Wear something bright.
