The Race:
Once you are all lined up the Starter will say
‘Toss your pancakes’…….., please toss your pancake…..
He will then say: ‘Are you ready?…..on your marks……get set…….go!’ and will ring the Pancake Bell
Once you have passed the finish line please toss your pancake again.
The first six finishers will be given place numbers. You may find the media representatives want to interview you at this point.

After the race:
Please attend the Shriving Service at the Church.
Drinks and your clothing will be in the Church. You will enter via the west door at the back of the church. Seats for the runners will be in the choir stalls, and the service lasts about 40 minutes.
The winner’s prize presentation will take place during this service – the winner receives £100, second £50 and third £25.
