The competition involves show-jumping, where the rabbits must navigate obstacles of varying heights - with the bunnies being judged on speed as well as agility.

And the fun doesn't begin and end at rabbits. The grand national is part of the Burgess Premier Small Animal Show - which involves gerbil, hamsters, mice, rats, cavies and chinchillas, all gathering for various different competitions.
