It's A Knockout!

I was asked to help photograph the It's A Knockout event at York Racecourse last weekend, which was being held to help raise money for St Leonard's Hospice. There were four tournaments held on the day and I covered the last one, starting at 6pm.

Fortunately the rain that featured prominently throughout the bank holiday weekend stayed away and it proved to be a hugely fun and foam filled event! Anyone who remembers the It's A Knockout TV series will be familiar with format - teams go head to head through a series of obstacle courses, typically involving inflatables, water, fairy liquid - or all three together - with numerous opportunities to fall flat on your whotsit...

I try to get at least one photograph of everyone taking part at events like this but, with so much going on all the time, that proved nigh on impossible other than the team shots at the outset. Sorry if you took part and I didn't get one of you.

Here a some of my favourites from the event, and the full album is over on my Google Plus page.
