The Great Chesham Pancake Race returns! 10th Feb 11am

Did you know that in the 1980s there were annual Pancake Races in Chesham?

Last year, we decided it was time for a revival of this great tradition. It was a huge success so we are doing it again!

The original race was a solo sprint but we like to mix it up so everyone can join in the fun. All ages and speeds, grannies and grandkids welcome. It’s the taking part that counts!

Teams of four will run a relay race but instead of a baton, they will pass a frying pan and pancake. And each runner has to stop twice to toss the pancake – without dropping it on the ground. The winners of each heat will go on to the next round, building up to the final race. All for the honour of being the winners of The Great Chesham Pancake Race 2024!

Frying pans and pancakes (don’t eat them!) for the race will be provided. And entry is completely free!
