      Hello, I am going to photograph a road relay race in a couple of weeks. One of the shots I would like to capture is of a runner with arms, legs and body blurred (suggesting speed, movement) but the face/head clear and in focus.
      Any suggestions as to how to do this would be gratefully received.
      Thank you

      Sounds like you want to do some panning.

      Here is an article we did on it a while back: http://www.lightstalking.us/panning

      You can also cheat in photoshop if things don’t turn out! 😉 : http://www.lightstalking.us/add-panning-effect-photosho

      Another thing to keep in mind is that when you’re shooting these kind of sequenced, rather high-paced subjects, even when using a slower shutter speed to emphasize your subjects motion, make sure your camera is set on a continuous, rather than just single frame.
