WATCH: People chase cheese rolling down hill in annual contest

An event is drawing in people from all over the world that chose to risk life and limb running down a steep hill -- chasing cheese.

Hundreds of people run and tumble down steep hill chasing a roll of cheese in England.

Participants end up with cuts, sprains, grazes, and even broken limbs.

Thousands line the steep hill to watch the participants simply throw themselves down the hill.

The annual tradition is hundreds of years old. 

Chris Anderson, 28, has won the event for the last 17 years. He said he plans to go for the record of 19 and call it a career.
