Do you remember the Cheese Rolling back in 2007, either way I had to continue the tradition. Here’s the 2008 craziness.
Gloucestershire Cheese Rolling 2008 video. Death-defying clips from the 2008 Cooper’s Hill Cheese Rolling and Wake, where every year fearless competitors from around the world tumble down an almost vertical hill in Gloucester, UK, chasing an 8lb Double Gloucester Cheese. It can never really be caught as it reaches breakneck speeds but the first person to cross the line at the bottom of the hill wins the coveted cheese. Thousands of spectators turned up to watch again this year, and there were also a few of the usual injuries. Thankfully St John’s Ambulances were on hand to whisk the casualties away to the local hospital. See here to find out more.
You don’t have to be crazy to enter, but it helps.
