Enjoy the Tetbury Woolsack Races in the Cotswolds

For a taste of a very British tradition, head down to the Cotswolds for the Tetbury Woolsack Races on the upcoming spring bank holiday.

The action takes place on Monday May 30th, with the town holding a street fair to celebrate the hard work of competitors and a huge number of spectators cheering on those involved.

While official races have only been running for about 30 years, it is believed that the practice of pacing up the hill in Tetbury carrying a woolsack has been going on since the 17th century.

In a statement, the organisers of the event explained: “The races have no greater aim than for individuals and teams to demonstrate their strength and fitness by racing whilst carrying a sack of wool.”

The packs carried by men and women taking part weigh 60 lb and 35 lb respectively.

It costs GBP20 for adults to register a team for a race and GBP5 for an individual. No more entrants will be accepted after 12:00 BST on the day.

Participants and spectators keen to find a Cotswold Hotel can use LateRooms.com to find a suitable option, with the website recommending the Tortworth ourt Four Pillars Hotel among others.
