Great Spitalfields Pancake Race 2013
This event has now finished. Tue Feb 12
Time Out says
Teams of four in wacky costumes run up and down Dray Walk, off Brick Lane, flipping pancakes to raise money for London's Air Ambulance through sponsorship or a donation on the day. Organiser Alternative Arts prefers it if you register in advance for this Shrove Tuesday event by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 020 7375 0441 for application forms. Those taking part should bring their own frying pan (pancakes will be provided). Heats start at 12.30pm, followed by the finals and prize giving - the winners receive (you guessed it) a beautifully engraved frying pan and there are also prizes for the runners up, the best behaved team and the best dressed team. Hot pancakes are provided by Casaba's Hungarian Creperie; music comes courtesy of the Lost Marbles String Band.
