Challenge Stage

Many have tried… many have failed!

74.5 inches of sausage, followed by a pint of cider in 6min 6sec remains our record! Impressively set by our reigning champion, James Shute at Bowood 2016, none of our recent challengers have managed to take his Crown! Will he remain undefeated for 2021 or are you man (or woman enough) to do better?!
