Runners Risk Limbs at Annual UK Cheese Chase Brockworth, UK


Hundreds of people risked fractured legs, ankles and arms on Monday running down a steep hill chasing a wheel of cheese in the Gloucestershire village of Brockworth.

The Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake is an annual event held on the Spring Bank Holiday at Cooper’s Hill, near Gloucester in England.The event is traditionally held by and for the people who live in the local village of Brockworth, but now people from all over the world take part. The Guardian called it a “world-famous event”, and indeed, in 2013, a 27-year-old American man and a 39-year-old Japanese man each won one of the four races.[2] The event takes its name from the hill on which it occurs.
