Hundreds of racers are expected to gather in Horsham town centre today (Tuesday February 16) to take part in the eighth annual charity pancake race.

The event, organised by Rotary Club Horsham and hosted by Dave Benson Phillips, will take place at the Carfax at noon and will see participants in fancy dress displaying their flipping skills in the 80m relay race.

Each team of four participants, equipped with their own frying pan, will be judged on their skills, speed and creativity with their costume ideas.

Each team member must complete the circuit once at a ‘fast walking’ pace, tossing the pancake at various points and adding sugar and lemon along the way.

The winning team in each race will proceed to the next round of the competition.

Prizes and cups will be awarded for categories including Best Team Fancy Dress, Best Over 40’s Team and Winning Charity Team.

Last year’s winners included Santander Bank and Horsham Y-Centre were awarded the Rotary Shield for Winning Charity Team.
