Two years since it was last held, Glenham Trainwreck Trail’s organiser is pleased with the turnout at the weekend.
Alec Smith said there were 280 entrants biking, running or walking in Saturday’s event, which was on par with previous years.
‘‘The event now has quite a good following.’’
The fundraiser for the Glenham Community Centre featured a variety of track lengths for different physical abilities.
‘‘It’s quite hilly country here so it’s quite hard work.
‘‘And you’re a bit of a wreck at the end.’’
The historic Glenham Rail Tunnel featured on the different tracks which was where the event got its name from.
People got to enjoy a barbecue lunch once they completed the challenge.
It was pleasing ‘‘to get out and do it and see all these people out here . . . enjoying themselves’’ after it could not go ahead last year because of Covid-19 restrictions.
‘‘To be fair, we’d all forgotten what we were supposed to do and how we were doing it, so it’s taken a wee bit of getting organised again.’’
The community-oriented event could not happen without people coming together and putting in the work, whether it was a small or large amount, Mr Smith said.
