July World Snail Racing Championships

19 July 2014

The 2014 championships were held today on cricket field at Congham in Norfolk.

The winning snail was “Wells” owned and trained by Zeben Butler-Alldred from London.  Zeben is five years old.

Wells completed the course in 3 minutes 19 seconds, a slow time because of the heat.

Zeben named his snail after the town Wells which he liked in West Norfolk when vacationing there.
