All Windsor and Eton businesses and organisations have been asked to log off Snapchat and Instagram, pick up a frying pan and a pan cake and join the one-and-only seasonal sprint in Windsor and Eton.

The race is on to find the ‘batter’ and best teams in the 2022 Pancake Race as the Royal Borough once again revives the ancient tradition with a dash to the finish at Windsor Royal Shopping on Shrove Tuesday (1 March).

This year the heat will be on as teams of four line up from 10.30am to race, relay-fashion, along a 50-metre course, tossing their pancakes three times to a minimum height of two feet as they compete for top honours and a shiny frying pan trophy.

Teams are encouraged to don the traditional pancake racing gear of the 15th-century housewife – skirt, apron, headscarf and frying pan (with NO concessions for male participants!) – and there is a prize for the best-dressed team.

The 2022 Windsor & Eton Pancake Challenge is supported by Welcome back fund and coordinated by Windsor Royal Station and Windsor, Eton and Ascot Town Partnership.

Sue Watts , Windsor Royal Station Manager says; As one of the main shopping centres, we love being involved in community events like the Windsor Pancake race as well as giving our tenants the opportunity to step outside the office to have some fun. Let’s hope we can take the trophy home, once again!

Organised by the Windsor, Eton and Ascot Town Partnership and Windsor Royal Shopping, the proceeds will go towards the Windsor Homeless Project and Windsor Safety Hub. Entry fee is only £20 per team (2 people only) but businesses are welcome to donate more if they wish.

There will also be a special Mascot only race. This has proved a great hit over the years it has been running featuring, Nando’s Chickens, Legoland characters any many more.
