The ferrets race along special drainpipes. These often have various bends, kinks and obstacles included. Many set ups also have clear plastic and see through cage sections to allow the frenzied crowds to check the progress of their favourite.
At the start of the race the ferrets are popped into the pipes and the end blocked up. The ferret master and his helpers will then wait at the other end, often using various ferret friendly inducements, to encourage a quick run through the pipes. The ferrets love it and soon learn that a treat (apparently Marmite on bread soldiers is popular) awaits them at the end of the pipe.
Ferrets are also cute, full of personality and insatiably curious. There are nearly always amusing incidents and funny occurrences during the course of the races.
