Tetbury Woolsack Races

We are delighted to be once again taking part in the Tetbury Woolsack Races which return on Monday 27th May. 

Since 1972, Tetbury has hosted the world famous Woolsack Races. A test of strength, where individuals and teams compete, to run up and down the 1 in 4 gradient of Gumstool Hill with heavy woolsacks on their back. 

The races were paused in 2020 due to Covid but prior to that St Mary's children ran in these races every year. We are very much looking forward to doing so again.
