#SaturdayEvents Tetbury Woolsack Races

On Saturday’s we share an event we feel you, our Team Energised, will love. This Saturday is the Tetbury Woolsack Races​, taking place on the 27th May 2019.

 

“The races have no greater aim than for individuals and teams to demonstrate their strength and fitness by racing whilst carrying a sack of wool – up and down a hill that reaches a gradient of 1 in 4. Around this the town celebrates with a street fair that aims to please many with street entertainers, local stalls and amusement rides.”

 

Head Coach Kim is a former champion and highly recommends having a go!! Read Kim’s blog on taking part in 2015 HERE

“The madness…. grab a sack of Wool, 16kg for ladies, and 30kg for men, and sprint as fast as you can up a 1 in 4 gradient hill. Dating back to the 16th Century, the race has been part of the Official Guinness Book of Records for the last 30 years….”

 

Do let us know if you take part and would like any help with training, or if you’re racing elsewhere and would recommend it,

Big support, Kim and the Team x
