Each year in Battersea Park, London, there is a charity event called the Sumo Run. It’s a lot of fun and a great opportunity to take some pictures.

Below is a set of images from the Sumo Run 2013 that have been lying around on my hard drive for a while. They were all taken with a Minolta Dynax SPxi and a Sigma 70-210mm f4-5.6 lens. The colour photos are Lomography colour negative 400 film and the black and white photos are Ilford FP4.
