About

Route information
Instead of hurtling down the near-vertical hill chasing after a block of cheese and being crushed at the bottom, you will be doing the opposite. Attempt to run, jog or walk to the top of the infamous Cheese Rolling Hill, where many 9lb Double Gloucester Cheese have rolled before you. The hill will be rather muddy so wear suitable footwear such as trail shoes. There is also a kids mile available too.
At the summit, take in the enchanting views below. Follow the undulating marked route along Cotswold Way and conserve your energy on the route as you will have to summit the hill a second time to finish.
