The most Gurning World Championships ever

WORLD'S MOST
GURNING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP WINS

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who won the most Gurning World Championships in the world?

The Egremont Crab Fair is an annual event held on the third Saturday of every September. Here you will not find the traditional fair rides such as Ferris Wheels and roller coasters however. This fair includes events that are true to the fair’s history, which began in 1267 when the Lord of Egremont would annually pass out crab apples for absolutely free.

Staying true to tradition, this fair now holds events such as Cumberland wrestling, a pipe smoking event, and the locals gathering around to sing traditional hunting songs. But the entire fair starts off with the Parade of the Apple Cart, where an apple cart is driven down the main street and free crab apples are thrown to the crowd, just as Lord of Egremont once did centuries ago.

After everyone has had their share of the apples, the World Gurning Championship begins. This is a very unique event in which contestants must frame their ugly, distorted faces in a horse collar, otherwise known as a ‘braffin.’

Gordon Mattison, of Aspatria, Cumbria, holds the records for the most wins at a Gurning World Championship. He has won the championship a total of ten times from 1967 to 1972 and then from 1974 to 1977.
