FlashFrame announced this week that their service would be available at the Newport City News One City Marathon presented by Newport News Shipbuilding on March 12th 2017, through a partnership with the event. FlashFrame is a Chicago based start-up that offers a repository for race photography, dynamically tagging uploaded photos with bib numbers as well as athlete shirt colors so that participants can quickly find and purchase their photos from race photographers. Photographers have contributed photos to the site at many events across the US and internationally including the Bix-7, Chicago Marathon, NYC Marathon, and Havana Marathon.
This year will mark the third running of the annual Once City Marathon, an event that boasted over 3000 finishers in 2016 across all events including the One City Marathon, Marathon Relay, Maritime 8K, and Nautical Mile. A truly unique event in Newport Virginia, the weekend offers a health and wellness expo, pre-race pasta dinner, and magnificent waterfront course all culminating with a post-race celebration in the local Victory Landing Park.
FlashFrame CEO Griffin commented “We’re excited that FlashFrame is going to be utilized at the One City Marathon. We’ve had lofty goals of changing the landscape of race photography to better both photographers and runners. While FlashFrame has been featured at hundreds of races since, we’re looking forward to operating under a partnership with such an exciting race and such talented local photographers to provide a long lasting memory to the participants.”
Marketing Director Elizabeth commented, “The One City Marathon is excited to be partnering with Flash Frame as our official photography partner. Flash Frame provides a great platform that will not only ensure our runners receive great race photos, but more importantly that their race photos are affordable. We are looking forward to a great event on March 12th and building upon this partnership with Flash Frame”
