Snail racing competition postponed because snails are too ‘sluggish’ to take part, organisers say

A snail racing competition has been postponed because the snails are too “sluggish” to take part, organisers say.

The charity event was due to take place today until organisers noticed their lethargic champs were not ready and raring to go.

The Dartmoor Union pub in Holbeton, Plymouth, was due to collect the competitors but when they rang the pet shop they were told the cold weather had led to them becoming too “sluggish” to go racing.
