2005

In 2005,  the event  was again held as planned.

A beautiful day greeted an estimated 5,000 people to the hill from all over the world.

There was a very excited atmosphere as mid-day approached and the crowd began to chant 'Roll the cheese!'

As usual, competitors ran, tumbled, rolled and slid down after the cheeses in the 4 down-hill races.

'Young Farmers' and rugby players were among the experts acting as 'catchers' for the runners who were unable to stop!

There were casualties of course, but every competitor has the opportunity to assess the danger and is responsible for his / her own actions.

We are very grateful to both S.A.R.A.I.D. (Search and Rescue Aid in Disaster) and St. John Ambulance for helping the injured.

We also have to thank 'Regent Security' who provide the marshals.
