Cheese Rolling


Dozens hurt in cheese race

Now, this is a sport with a difference. Possibly quite bizarre by modern standards but it’s a tradition:

The competition, which is thought to date back hundreds of years, consists of a series of downhill races with the winner of each receiving a seven to eight pound circle of cheese. Runners up get £10 and there is a £5 prize for third place. One spectator was given treatment after being hit by a runaway cheese.

I really recommend you watch the video too!
