It’s hard to believe, but April is almost over. Along with the end of April comes the end of a great spring tradition — Crystal City’s 5K Friday races. The last race of the season will take place on Friday.

Over the past four weeks, we’ve asked photographers to head out with a camera and snap some photos of the action for our Crystal City ‘Flickr Flash’ Photo Contest. Ignoring rain and hunger pains (the races start at 6:30 p.m. on Fridays), photographers were able to capture more that 50 great shots.

We’ve now narrowed the submissions down to 10 finalists. Take a look below and vote for your three favorites. Voting will end at 3:00 p.m. on Friday. We’re offering the following prizes to the top three vote-getters:

  • 1st Prize: $200 Morton’s Crystal City gift card and a race t-shirt
  • 2nd Prize: $50 Jaleo gift card and race t-shirt
  • 3rd Prize: $25 Bozzelli’s Italian Deli gift card and race t-shirt

Thank you to everybody who participated in the contest, and good luck to the finalists!

    Since 30% of the pics are by the same person, can they win all 3 prizes?

    (and no pics of me :( )

      Theoretically, yes.

      It would be nice to have access to all of the photos…no one caught me in my red dress last week. 😛

        Adding to the moderator’s comment above, since contestants could only add five shots to the ARLnow.com Flickr pool, you might want to check the photostreams of the contestants for additional shots.

        The rest of the pictures I took at the races are at the link below.

        Here’s a link to my photos. There’s a set for each of the three races I photographed (4/1, 4/8, and 4/22). I took a lot more than I could enter.
