The seventh of April 2019


Today was a very exciting day in the UK. A very famous race between two of the world’s most renowned universities, Oxford and Cambridge, takes place every year in the spring time. Each team spends the winter training and gearing up for the big day. Light blue versus regular blue, and there is plenty of pomp and circumstance before the big race and then…one goat representing Cambridge and one representing Oxford run side-by-side and whoever crosses the finish line at Spitalfields City Farm first wins! Last year, it was a very close race, but Hamish the goat representing Oxford gamboled across the finish line first – and this year he held his title! Hugo, the goat representing Cambridge put in a very good effort, but it was not quite enough to beat last year’s champion. The Oxford Cambridge Goat Race is a wonderful Sunday afternoon with plenty of tasty beverages, goat-related puns, and good times. There is even a pre-goat race pig race that is a lot of fun. It is very advisable to book in advance, as it is the best race happening in London this day and is likely to sell out – you wouldn’t want to be stuck with nothing to do on race day!
