Texas Relays Photo Gallery

Photographer Don Bender shot all the action at the 2007 Texas Relays meet and shares them with you here

Freelance photographer Don Bender spent two days shooting the Texas Relays, capturing the fantastic Friday session as well as the weather-ruined Saturday session. The meet started off in its typical record-breaking magnificence, but icy rain forced many finals to be canceled, and other races were reduced to a sad-looking two or three runners. The crowd was decimated, too, the 100 or so people in the stands a pale but hardy shadow of the 18,000-20,000 that normally show up.
