What is it?
More than 200 snails slug it out every year in the World Snail Racing Championships held at Congham, in Norfolk. The World Snail Racing Championships are held as part of Congham Fete which helps to raise money for the 13th century St Andrew’s Church. The races are a fun event for young and old alike. Snails race from the centre of a circle to the outside cheered on by their ‘trainers’ and the crowd. Why not enter a snail of your own or go along and cheer on the speedy competitors?
