Providing there are no further Covid-19 restrictions, the Wimborne Minster Pancake Race is all set to run this year on Shrove Tuesday 1 March.
The winner in the over 18 category will receive a prize from Viewpoint magazine as well as The John Loader Memorial Cup, presented by Martyn and Kathy Curtler.
People of all ages are invited to take part and there are also races for the under 18s. Depending on the number of entries these will again be split into three age ranges 4-9, 9-13 and 13-18. Likewise there will be races for pre-schools and toddlers and those using wheelchairs.
The venue is, as always, outside the main north porch entrance to the minster and the first race will commence at 11am as the Pancake Bell is tolled. Competitors will be required to run around the minster tossing their pancakes at each of the four corners of the church.
All competitors should report to the north porch by 10.30am to enrol, complete with frying pan and ready cooked pancake.
Get yourself into training for the big day and pick up an entry form, which will be available in the minster or from the parish office or just turn up on the day.
