The great Macclesfield Pancake Race will be held on Shrove Tuesday, 13th February 2018. Registration is now open for teams, if you’d like to put forward your business, club or community organisation and compete for the coveted trophy, please contract the organisers on 01625 661184 or email email.
As always, it’s not about winning, it’s about having fun and raising money for a great cause. The annual fundraiser is organised by the ECHO Hospital and Community Health Care Charity (click here to visit their website). All the money raised goes towards local heath services and equipment, it’s only £20 to enter a team, with an aim for each team to raise as much as possible for the charity.
If you’d like to watch the event, the Pancake Race is held at Market Square in Macclesfield, teams race up and down a short course on Mill Street from outside the old town hall to just past the Grosvenor Centre entrance. Registration is at 10am, with the first race starting around 11am and should be finished by 1pm. Fancy dress is optional, pans and pancakes will be provided and wonderful volunteers from the Rotary Club of Macclesfield Castle will be helping steward the event.
