At the 2015 cheese races down Cooper’s Hill.

Like all races, cheese rolling has rules. There are four contests—three for men and one for women. Each has a maximum number of racers (14), although some years have seen up to 40. The race does not begin with a starter’s pistol or a buzzer, but when the master of the ceremony shouts “One to be ready, two to be steady, three to prepare [at which point the cheese begins its journey], and four to be off.” At that point the chase begins.
