Pancake racers brought their pans to Dursley to compete in the annual race on Shrove Tuesday.
This quirky tradition saw runners competing against each other in a race down Parsonage Street, flipping pancakes as they go.
Starting at the King’s Head pub, racers tossed their pancakes six times in total – once at the start of the race, twice on the way up, once at the halfway point as they turned around, then twice more on the way back to cross the finish line.
The fastest pancake flipper was Sarah Wynell-Mayow, who was running for animal charity Blue Cross. BBC Radio Gloucestershire’s Jamil Foster, dressed as a banana, finished second.
In the children’s race, Isabelle Siggers,6, took the plaudits. Meanwhile, Ophelia Fox was awarded the Eileen Nichols trophy for best dressed pancake racers.
Trophies were awarded by Dursley Town mayor Symon Ackroyd.
Dean Smith who watched the race, joked: “I can’t believe it’s Pancake Day, it’s really crêped up on us…”
