Southampton Village, New York, June 21, 2017: The 11th annual Hamptons Marathon & Half will be held on September 23, 2017 in Southampton, New York with a field of 2,500 runners and is expected to sell out as it has each year. New this year, runners’ photos will be captured by event photography start up Flashframe.
The Hamptons Marathon team, which also runs the Bridgehampton Half in the spring, has partnered with Flashframe, a YCombinator backed startup, to bring photography to participants at an affordable price. Flashframe distinguishes itself from other companies in that they equitably compensate photographers for their time and effort, and provide a mobile-first platform. Founder Griffin Kelly stated “we’re excited to work with such a signature event like the Hamptons Marathon, and hope to provide stunning photography to every runner.”
Race Director Diane Weinberger notes that, “The event photography landscape has changed and runners no longer need or want to pay $20+ for post-race prints. Flashframe provides a unique solution.” It is the Hamptons Marathon’s commitment to their runners that has helped produce a mid-sized race of elite quality and has made the Hamptons Marathon & Half a “Race to Run” in Runner’s World Magazine.
