Cooper’s Hill Cheese Rolling

May 30, 2016 @ 7:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

From the top of the hill a 9 lb round of Double Gloucester cheese is rolled, and competitors start racing down the hill after it. The first person over the finish line at the bottom of the hill wins the cheese. In theory, competitors are aiming to catch the cheese; however, it has around a one-second head start and can reach speeds up to 70 mph.
