World Snail Racing Championships





Stop Press - 2014 Champion!

The 2014 championships were held on 19th July 2014 and the winner was a snail called Wells owned and trained by Zeben Butler-Alldred, aged 5, from London.  Wells completed the course in 3 minutes 19 seconds, a slow time because of the heat. Zeben was on holiday in West Norfolk and named his snail after the local town Wells which he liked.
