PHOTOS: Our Favorite Shots from Cove to Clover’s “The Uprising”
With the 2012 Cove to Clover race in our rearview mirror, we’re sorting through our photos from the event and starting to pull out some of our favorites.
BTB photog Michael Brunk was stationed at “The Uprising” near the end of the course.
This runner obstacle — now bigger and badder in its second year — featured a large hill constructed from hay bales in the midst of a whirling battle between rival Celtic bands. Loud music and smoke complete the scene.
This year the warriors were largely portrayed by volunteers from Highline High School’s baseball team. Fitted out with kilts, swords and shields and painted faces, they added a little excitement for runners just before they made the turn onto 152nd Street and the final stretch before the finish line.
Here are a some of Michael’s favorite photos from this year’s Uprising. You can click the thumbnails to view high resolution images.
