This year’s Towpath Half Marathon photo award is courtesy of life long Cleveland professional photographer, Dan Morgan/Straight Shooter. As he has provided for the last 11 years, Dan’s photo award subject is the Guardians of Traffic, eight different statues atop pylons located at each end of the Hope Memorial Bridge (spans the Towpath Trail and the Cuyahoga River).For this year’s Towpath Half Marathon photo award, Dan selected the Guardian “to honor the trucking businesses who have never stopped delivering things we have needed, essentials, like food, mail and toilet paper, and even now vaccines. The trucking business is so taken for granted, overlooked & undervalued.”
