In November, we were lucky to be in New York when the marathon was taking place. Armed with my camera, I headed off to Central Park and took some photos.

When I arrived, there was the usual hustle and bustle that you'd expect from any marathon but I was also struck by just how international the event was, which seemed in stark contrast to the policies, politics and general mood of the country at that time.

As the run unfolded I witnessed massive support for everyone taking part, a real sense of community and coming together to fundraise for what each person felt passionate about. It felt like everyone there was showing a united front and were supporting everyone - kindness and love were paramount that day and it made for a truly electric atmosphere I was lucky to be a part of.

Here are some of my favourite photos.
