One of the most bizarre events happen here every single year. It didn't stop when it wasn't official anymore and not even the world wars could stop this centuries long tradition. It is the Cheese Rolling festival - where people throw themselves down a hill to chase after some cheese. About 5000 people turn up (so be sure to get there in plenty of time) to watch the races of the day that start traditionally at 12pm on Cooper's Hill, which is actually up another hill. Cooper's Hill is at an approximately 70 degree angle and is certainly very bumpy and slippery. I didn't run myself, since we couldn't tell what was happening at all. It's very crowded and incredibly hard to climb to get to the top in the spectators section! I'd say climbing the spectators hill is just as hard, if not then more dangerous since its muddy, brambly and not cleaned up like the famous hill, hence why its advisable to get there early. Also all the organisers have a "can" in one hand, which I found rather amusing as you can really tell that this event is officially unofficial. It just adds to the charm of the event really. With all this though, I still had a great time watching everyone throw themselves down and then get tackled by the rugby team at the bottom. It's as if they've been told they can tackle anyone who comes down that hill however they want. It is incredibly amusing and I can't wait to get properly prepared next to year to participate myself. Bring it on!
