Brownlee Olympic Gold Run

What were you doing on Tuesday 7th August?
Well, the Brownlee brothers were competing in the Olympic Triathlon in London. If you weren't going to London to cheer on the boys, the Brownlee Gold Run event was the next best thing, a short race on Penistone then watching the events of the triathlon unfold on the big screen in the Old Sun Hotel whooping and hollering as Ali and Jonny crossed the line to claim Olympic Gold and Bronze!

After all the fun and games everyone can settle down and watch the Triathlon, which starts at 11.30am, in the comfort and warmth of the Old Sun Hotel, the pub is kindly putting on free soup & roll, and sandwiches, so let's get behind the lads and cheer them all the way to the finish line. It's going to be a day to remember for all the right reasons.

And don't worry folks the Brownlee boys are supportive of the idea and Ali said, 'what a great idea, we are fine with it. You think people will turn up on a Tuesday morning? Would be embarrassing if no one showed, ha, ha.'
