Mowing your lawn is no longer a chore as a group of people annually get together to race against one another.
The British Lawn Mower Racing Association began in 1973 in West Sussex and now hosts events all over the UK including Wales, Yorkshire and Norfolk.
Their most recent event took place on 14 April at Brindle Distillery, Chorley, Lancs, in preparation for the festivities to begin May through to October.
