Borough Market

43 Borough High Street

The legendary Better Bankside Pancake Day Race has crêped up fast and is back on Tuesday 5 March 2019.

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 visual art and creative activities to improve the health and wellbeing of patients, carers and the public. 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 5 March 2019 in Borough Market's Jubilee Place area (area opposite Winchester Walk and behind Bread Ahead Bakery School). 

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! 

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.
