Mayor Marsha Moseley with some of the Sandfield School winners in 2011
Where and When?
The races are held in Guildford High Street on Shrove Tuesday (28th Feb this year) and registration and prize giving takes place in the Guildhall. The morning starts at 10:30 (see schedule below)and is made up of mixed races of relays and sprints usually completing by 13:00. Competitors need only turn up in time for their race but of course would be welcome to stay for the entire event.
The course is cordoned off with pedestrian barriers and is approximately 50 meters long running up the slope from the Guildhall. The aim is to run the course, tossing the pancake at the tossing points and arriving at the finish with most of the pancake in the pan.
The pedestrian barriers offer an excellent location for our sponsors’ banners
RACE SPONSORS URGENTLY REQUIRED -
Relay Races are run over 4 lengths (200M) starting at the Guildhall need to be successfully completed by up to 7 teams made up of either 4 individual team members or (if team members are slacking) by a lesser number with some participants having to run more than once!
Sprint Races are a 50M dash down the hill stopping to toss at the designated points and finishing by the Guildhall.
Stopping and tossing is a safety measure and competitors may be disqualified for not stopping at the tossing points.
