Tuesday 8 March 2011 

11.00am start

Stafford’s Market Square

Preparations are underway for the annual Pancake Race, organised by Stafford Borough Council’s Leisure and Culture team. Teams of 4 are invited to come along and take part in the exciting relay race and compete for the ‘Best Flipper In Town’ award. Spectators are encouraged to come along and cheer on the teams. 

Last year a record 60 people entered the race making up fifteen teams taking part in the event. There were representatives from an array of areas from local business to St. Chad’s Church Choir.

A large crowd gathered in the Market Square to cheer on the teams. Fancy dress was encouraged, and most competitors kindly obliged – we even had someone from Domino’s Pizza dressed in a large pizza box!

Last year’s winners ‘Flippin’ Great’ (representing Sainsburys Stafford), flipped their way to the finish line in a close run final against, Starbucks, Sport Across Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent and NGB Ninja’s (representing National Governing Bodies for Sport).

Sainsbury’s Stafford will support the race again by donating the frying pans and pancakes as they come back to defend their new found title of Best Flipper in Town.

Pancake specialist Peter’s Pan in Mill Street will also be supporting the event with light refreshments.

ADMISSION DETAILS: It is free to enter the event. Team entries are accepted before Wednesday 2 March. To enter email lhulse@staffordbc.gov.uk or call 01785 619 300 or visit www.staffordbc.gov.uk/leisure for further details.
