Cheese Rolling

Take a round of Double Gloucester cheese, walk to the top of Cooper’s Hill (near Gloucester in the Cotswalds), set it off down the hill, and then throw yourself to the ground and roll after it. First one to the bottom wins the race, the wheel of cheese, and the glory. The event has been a tradition for over 200 years and to this day is run come rain, shine, or official cancellations. 2010 and 2011 races were organized by “rebels” who couldn’t bear the thought of a cheese-rolling-less year.
