Grenochase 2011

Last night was the annual Grenochase in Grenoside, a race around the village.  And this year there seemed to be more runners than ever before and more people out watching than previous years.  It also seemed like more of an “event” than before as well.  There was a band performing on Main Street, The Angel had a hog roast in its beer garden, there was a burger van in the community centre car park and the whole village was buzzing – it was great!

The course is pretty challenging – it involves a very steep hill climb – and I was full of admiration for everyone who entered.  There is no way I would be able to finish it!

Anyway, here are my photos from the event:
