Thousands of people descended on Brockworth, UK, for the annual cheese rolling tradition.
People from all over the world, from Canada to Japan, joined Brockworth and Gloucestershire residents to watch – and compete in – four races down Cooper’s Hill.
Since at least the early 1800s a cheese has been chased down the 180 metre, very steep hill.
Despite having no official backing, the cheese rolling still manages to attract competitors and spectators from across the globe and the rest of the UK.
The main races are the four downhill cheese chases, three men’s races and a women’s race.
But there were also uphill children’s events and plenty of entertainment provided by the crowd themselves, with chanting, cheering and Mexican waves in abundance.
