Now you know why snails wear crash helmets: it’s their love of speed. Join in the excitement of the slowest race on earth with our snail races at the Jubilee Fete.

Bring your own snail or choose a likely winner from our stable, and have a flutter on the outcome of the races.

Frequently asked questions:

Q: Can I bring my own snail?

A: Yes. We reserve the right to carry out random drug tests on competing snails, and checks will be made to ensure that ‘snails’ are not disguised slugs.

Q: Will there be separate races for male and female snails.

A: No.

Q: Can I put my snail in livery?

A: We regret that we cannot offer accommodation for snails in advance of the event.

Q: Are there any height or weight restrictions?

A: For health and safety reasons, we cannot accept snails with a shell length over 27.3 cm (10.75″) or weighing over 900g (2lb). However, if your snail exceeds these dimensions, they may be entered for a Guinness World Record.
