Besides being an ultra marathon, have you wondered what the Comrades Marathon was actually about. The Comrades started for the first time in May 24th 1921. The race was an idea of veteran Vic Clapham, commemorating the South African soldiers killed in the war. Vic Clapham wanted the memorial (Comrades) to test physical endurance of the entrants. So, coming back off the beaten track, excuse the pun. I was privileged to shoot the New Balance 1080V7 Comrades edition for 2017’s ultra marathon. Its not every day that one gets the opportunity shooting your favorite brand. Im incredibly proud of the outcome and to have been a part of the launch of this amazing long distance running shoe. Here are some behind the scenes photos. Don’t forget to follow Smith&Daniels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
