TETBURY WOOLSACK RACE | Tetbury Gloucestershire

| 29/02/2012 | 5 Comments More

I’ve done this race a few times and broken 3 world records over this course including the most hill reps carrying a 60lbs Woolsack in 12hrs.  Competitors run with 60lbs Woolsacks (35lbs for women) up the notorious Gumstool Hill in Tetbury, starting near the Royal Oak Pub at the Bottom and finishing The Crown, some 240yrds later is a lot tougher than it seems.

The course takes on a 1in4 gradient hill; the races are in heats with the finals at the end of the afternoon.  There are also relay races for teams of 4 people and kids races.

Location: Tetbury, Gloucestershire

Date: Final Bank Holiday of May
