What You Need To Know About The Cheese Rolling Contest

On the English Spring Bank Holiday, Cooper’s Hill, a town close to Gloucester, hosts the Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake. Following the sending of a round of Double Gloucester cheese rolling down the 200-yard (180 m) long hill, participants run down it. Although participants currently come from all over the world, the event was historically organized by and for the residents of the nearby community of Brockworth. It was a “world-famous tournament,” according to The Guardian, with victors from Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Nepal.
