I remember seeing this on the news, i would totally do it... if i remember correctly the cheese is hard as a rock so the winners have to be tough to even eat their prize lol

Peace out!

if you get hurt there, it's got to be worth it
there is 1 improvement that can be made, which is not using cheese but a ball/lump of bacon, sweet, salty, greasy bacon mmmm :)

Oh man that is just idiotic, running down a hill like that.
You can easely break an arm or leg when you fall.
I think you can never catch the cheese anyway, its way down the hill when you can start running.

even better idea :D
how about sitting in a giant hamsterball (the ones for humans) then it's more like human bowling ^^

a less animal friendly thing would be rolling a real hamster in a hamster ball down but i think it might b kind of funny too :)

Now this is the reason england is surrounded by water... you see before the invention of flying and sailing machines the creator of the planet made sure england was surrounded by water to make sure that this kind of hillarious stupidity was confined to just one small corner of the globe thus not to contaminate the more "normal" of the human species

just joking, i've nothing against english people.... i am one of them :(|) :(|) nice vid

A woman told a friend of mine that her 18 year old son was taking part in some 'Cheese related event in Gloucestershire' that weekend. He then e-mailed her a Youtube link showing her what it was all about, and strangely enough she was completely mortified.

Oh and that 'Grab the cheese!' yell has got to be the winner of the most obvious and unnecessary statement award 2009. Hilarious.

Also does anyone know the name of the village in england where all the men play a type of rugby for the whole day.

i think the cheese run starts with young cheese, but at the end of the race it's probably more like gorgonzola or something :)
