Pancake Day 2019, Tuesday 5 March

This year our Launchpad Pancake Race is on Shrove Tuesday, 5th March 2019. Teams from local businesses batter it out to win the coveted frying pan trophy at this eggstraordinary event!

On your marks…

Why not get together with colleagues and enter a team of 4 in this fun lunchtime event? Not only will you raise money for Launchpad Reading but you will also have a chance to win some fantastic prizes.

Get set…

Your team will take part in a series of knock-out heats, tossing pancakes along the way. You’ll need to arrive in Broad Street Mall between 11.45am and 12.15pm for registration and team photos (for inclusion in Reading Chronicle’s coverage). We’ll then parade to Broad Street where races begin at 12.30pm with the award presentations at approximately 1.30pm.


To enter, you’ll need to complete the application form along with a payment of £50 made payable to Launchpad Reading to secure your place. We’ll then contact you to confirm receipt of your entry and give you final details before race day. Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

Please download the application form and email it to fundraising@launchpadreading.org.uk

2018 was a cracking year to race and this year promises to be no different!
