Tetbury Woolsack Races
BHM 30 May 2011
Tetbury holds a rather unusual event on the May Bank Holiday.
Locals arrange themselves into teams of 4 and them into pairs to relay a 60lb woolsack (35lb for the ladies) up and down Gumstool Hill between The Crown and The Royal Oak pubs. The course is 280 yards long up and down a 1 in 4 hill, so if you want to challenge the mens record of 3.5 minutes off you go!
The races are the main attraction of a fun filled fund rasing day including:
- All day street market
- Charity auction
- Village fete
- Street entertainers
- Family entertainment
- Event: Tetbury Woolsack Races
