Mmmm pancakes. Stuffing your face with them doesn’t always go hand-in-hand with exercise – but the Great Spitalfields Pancake Race is all in the name of fun.
It might seem a while away – Pancake Day is on March 8 this year – but if you’re up for it, you and 3 team-mates can race up and down Dray Walk to raise money for the London Air Ambulance. Email or call 020 7375 0441 to enter or for more information.
That’s about a month to get in training!
After you’ve worked up an appetite after all that running, you can always reward yourself and eat the pancake – providing you didn’t drop it along the way….
Aside from pride and glory, the winners receive an engraved frying pan for their efforts.
The race goes from the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane, starting at 12:30pm.
Nearest Tube: Liverpool Street
