About 200 snails slug it out for the title of ‘Fastest Snail in the World’ at the World Snail Racing Championships in Congham, Norfolk, England every year. Anyone with a garden snail can enter and a number of heats are held before the grand final. The winner receives a silver tankard stuffed with lettuce.
