Entries are open for 2019 Cathedral Pancake Race
Peterborough Cathedral has announced that entries are now open for the 2019 Cathedral Pancake Race. Teams of four are invited to compete in the relay race, which takes a route around the Cathedral Precincts. The winning team will be judged on their successful pancake flipping as well as the speed with which they complete the course.
Organisations’ mascots are also invited to take part individually, in a separate race around the Cathedral green.
The race begins at 12.00 noon on Tuesday 5th March and teams are invited to arrive at 11.50am. Pancakes and frying pans will be provided and there will be a trophy for the winning team. Teams are encouraged to dress in aprons or fancy dress, with appropriate shoes for running. There will be a prize for the best fancy dress, and a participation medal for everyone who takes part in the race.
Spectators are encouraged to come along to support their team. Companies, organisations, clubs and groups of friends are encouraged to take part.
The entry fee is £20 per team of four and free of charge for the Mascot Race. More information and an entry form is on the Cathedral website, or call 01733 355315.
