Brockworth, United Kingdom, May 25, 2009--Cheese chasers tumble down steep slopes after a wheel of Double Gloucester during one of the downhill races at the annual Cooper's Hill Cheese Rolling. First prize is the cheese itself.

The 200-year-old annual event isn't exactly a walk in the park. Broken bones are a given, and this year 58 participants required medical care, according to the BBC.
