Last weekend (Sept 25) I shot the Falling Leaves Road Races in Utica. There is a 14k race and a 5k race. The 5k is flat and fast. The 14k is hilly and challenging. My favorite thing about the races is the downhill finish in downtown Utica. I’ve been able to run the race the last few years, but this year opted to spend my time shooting it.
The weather this year was great. There was a fantastic finish to the 5k race! Less than 12″ between 1st and 2nd place. To see all of the shots, or purchase any that were taken during the race, head over to my lifepics page (www.ryanorilio.lifepics.com).
