The biggest tumbles from 2019's annual cheese-rolling race, Gloucestershire UK

Thousands gathered on Cooper's Hill in Brockworth, England, for the annual Cheese Rolling event in May 2019.

The famous event dates back to the 1800s and takes place every late May Bank Holiday.

Cheeses for the event were made by Smarts of Gloucester and bought by local members of the community.

Footage captures the best and most gruesome tumbles as competitors chase the wheel of cheese bouncing down the hill in front of them.

The filmer zooms in on one tumbler dressed in a Superman costume and a red skirt around his waist. This particular competitor spends most of the race falling head-over-heels for the cheese before surfacing ostensibly unscathed.
