The legendary Better Bankside Pancake Day Race has crêped up fast and returns on Tuesday 25 February 2020.

Every year on Shrove Tuesday, Bankside businesses get a team together and compete with their neighbours in a fast and furious pancake-flipping relay. 

Put forward a team and support members of the Bankside business community as they show off their pancake-tossing skills. All proceeds will go towards Paintings in Hospitals, a charity that uses world-class art to inspire better health and wellbeing for patients, carers and communities. There will also be yummy pancakes available throughout the event (free for our racers!). 


Teams will need to register at 12pm and the races will start at 12.30pm, then finish around 1.30pm on 25 February 2020 at the netball court in Marlborough Sports Garden, 27 Union St, London SE1 1SD. 

How do I enter?

Better Bankside member businesses can submit teams of four runners and we have space for 25 teams overall to compete. To enter a team for the event, email info [at] (subject: I'd%20like%20to%20enter%20Pancake%20Day%20Race)  with a team name and the names of those racing. 

Whether you have a whip around the office, have a collection bucket or personally donate online, teams will need to donate £30 to complete their entry via Paintings in Hospitals donation page. Remember to add your team/company name to your donation so we know it's yours! You will not be able to race if you have not donated.

I don't fancy racing, can I just watch?

Please come down to cheer on your colleagues, friends, families, and strangers. Join us to support a great cause while having a flippin' fabulous time.
