Running with the llamas
Every September, on the second Saturday of the month, an event takes place in Hammond, Wisconsin that is like no other on the planet. The Running of the Llamas, now in its 19th year, is frivolous and at times farcical, but quite frankly, huge fun.
The llamas arrive
Pens keep them safe
The llamas are keen to be fussed

Dressing up is encouraged
The parade before the races
The parade is led by a piper
Some llamas run enthusiastically
Others less so!
The races are hard fought!
Winning a heat
It’s not over until the llama crosses the finish line
Meet the overall winner for 2015
All over, it’s time to go home until next year
