Snail Racing Championships - An event that is timed to the last milisecond!
Ready! Steady! Slow! And with that, more than 300 snails dash off, slugging
it out in the most important event in the snail racing calendar.
"Congham is to
snail racing what Newmarket is to horse racing", claims Hilary Scase, event
The racetrack, a circle of 13in radius, is kept at optimum dampness
by the trainer, and competitors with names such as Speedy or Schumacher, are
cheered on by the excitable crowd.
To enter, just bring a streamlined snail or
borrow one from the snail trainer on site.
The championships are part of Congham
Fete, which raises money for the 13th-century St Andrews Church.
Price: Proceeds to charity
