SkyTech Cambridge to capture this year’s Cambridge Half Marathon
SkyTech Cambridge, the drone services company, has been asked to capture aerial footage of this year’s TTP Cambridge Half Marathon, which takes place on Sunday, 3 March.
The company will also be testing Elon Musk’s Starlink satellite internet connection at the event.
With much of the work that SkyTech Cambridge carries out being in remote areas with patchy network coverage, it is expected that this new technology may be the future of its connectivity requirements for drone operations.
Attracting more than 11,000 runners, the TTP Cambridge Half Marathon features a scenic 13.1-mile course that winds its way through some of the city's most iconic landmarks – and this year’s event features a new route.
Founder of SkyTech Cambridge, Marc Mann, said: “It is fantastic to be invited back by organisers of the Cambridge Half Marathon, OSB Events and Two26 Photography.
“We are looking forward to providing them with high-quality aerial media as well as assisting them to deliver a safe and enjoyable event by providing real-time visual oversight for the duration of the event.”
