In Brockworth, United Kingdom, the village of Cooper's Hill organizes a traditional cheese race in which participants roll down a hill. A non-dangerous breed.

The cheese wheel rolls down the hill at more than 100 km/h, closely followed by crowds of runners at its heels in a chaotic procession. Cheese racing is an old English tradition that has been elevated to the status of a serious sport. Located in the west of England, Cooper's Hill resembles a lush ski slope. It is 100% gradient guaranteed. Hotheads from around the world challenge each other in a ramp that's hard to stand on.

But be careful, this breed is strong and dangerous: it causes many injuries every year. However, competitors flocked to the start. “You don't have to be afraid of pain. And maybe some neurons are missing. I miss a bit of both, so I tick all the boxes.”, summarizes one participant, all smiles. At the bottom of the hill, at the finish line, the local rugby team awaits the runners. “We skip the cheese, we stop before people hit the fence”A rugby player promises.
