Cheese Rolling Competition

In the last weekend in May each year (the Spring Bank holiday) on the top of the very steep Cooper's Hill in Gloucester England, people gather with their seven pound (~3 kg) hunk of cheese to take part in the famous "Coopers Hill Cheese Rolling and Wake".

The aim of the competition is to roll your cheese to the bottom of the hill with you following it any way you can. The cheese can travel at up to 30 miles per hour, with the participants at much the saem speed. People get hurt, some pretty badly, and if you ever see this event you will understand why.
