With a team of six editors clicking away, we were able to edit, tag, and upload all 12,000 images to our website in record time. This means that the Element team averaged an incredible 10.8 seconds per image! This was a huge achievement and we are proud to have raised the bar again with our quality and speed of delivery.

 

WRAP UP

This was an amazing event and is something we look forward to each year.

The team behind the Flight Centre Cycle and Trail Run Epic do a phenomenal job.  Not only was the event a huge success, this year it raised a whooping $10,000 for the PA Research Foundation

We hope to see you at the 2019 Flight Centre Cycle and Trail Run Epic!
