Who needs the excitement . . . the danger . . . and expense of Formula 1 racing . . . or horse racing . . . or running with bulls? We don’t.

There are alternatives — calmer races — that we get our adrenaline rushes from and want to tell you about.

We’ve arranged the races on the order of speed. There are some close calls, however — For example, book carts and shopping trolleys probably race at about the same speed.

  • Turtles and Tortoises
  • Gold Fish
  • Ferrets
  • Book Carts
  • Rubber Ducks
  • Hamsters
  • Pigeons
  • Shopping Tolleys/Carts

  • Milk Floats
  • Donkey Carts
