P2A Race Footage & Photos

Imagine putting together the photos for over 3000 participants from multiple photographers and then trying to figure out the plate numbers that are covered in mud! They have done it! FinisherPix will have their photos up now at CLICK.

Over the many years of the P2A we have never had an official photographer. For 2023 we are pleased to have Finisher Pix taking exclusive photos of the event. You can pre-order photos now or wait until after the race. The link to Finisher Pix will be posted here as soon as feasible after the race. We hope you will find that special keepsake photo that you will inspire for a long time after the P2A.


Over the years we have let photographers do their own thing at the P2A and sell photos if they want. However, for 2023 Finisher Pix has exclusivity to take and sell photos to event participants. We do not grant permission to anyone other than Finisher Pix to sell photographs to race participants.

If you take photographs for a media outlet you will need written permission from P2A to be on course. Please contact us well before the event to obtain this permission. Emails sent the day before the race will likely go unanswered (we're busy!) and you need that permission. Besides, if you give us some lead time we can assist you in directions to some great spots on the race course. Thank you for your understanding.

It is difficult to get permission to fly a drone near the race. You must have a permit from the municipality that you wish to fly in (there are 7 that the P2A goes through) and you must have a licensed drone pilot. It is difficult enough that we will not be using our own drones in 2023. P2A will not be responsible if someone flies a drone without meeting the conditions above. Please don't use a drone near the event on race day.

Photos from Group Thirty One - This Dundas based photographer's collective (CLICK) had some of their members out taking pictures in a couple of spots on the P2A. There are small galleries here from the photographers. There will be more to come in the future. Many thanks to one and all!

GCN on YouTube - many of our racers were super stoked to visit with Manon Lloyd from the Global Cycling Network (GCN). In this video Manon gets racing tips at Cafe Domestique from Pro Maghalie Rochette and then is out riding on parts of the P2A course. CLICK

GCN on YouTube - here is Manon Lloyd's P2A race adventure. If you've never done the P2A this will certainly give you taste of what it is all about. If you have done the P2A this will give you a fresh perspective of our legendary gravel race. CLICK

Bill West Photos - Bill was kind enough to send us many hundreds of pictures. He was at Gravel Pit Road just under the rail trail bridge which is a perspective we don't usually see in P2A race photos. .Many thanks to Bill for his photography.

Lesley Scime Photos - Lesley was a participant in the 2018 P2A. She had her GoPro on photo mode and took a series of interesting photos that give you a good idea of what it is like to be in the race. Her photos include the start, Sharp's Lane (in the pack) and some other sections of rail trail. Thanks to Lesley for contributing to the archive.
