The Flip ‘n Fun Race team sign-up

Race -- team sign-up

  • The Flip 'n Fun Race starts at 12 noon on Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2017, in the central courtyard. (It's part of our big barbecue fund--raiser)

    Teams may include up to four people -- students, faculty, staff or anyone wishing to be part of the fun.

    Entry fee: To compete, each member of the team will pay a $2 entry fee ($8 per team). contributed to the UBC Okanagan United Way fund.

    The race is a timed event -- each racer must run or walk 25 metres holding a pancake in a frying pan.

    At the half-way point, the pancake must be flipped in the air (minimum flip-height is 30cm).

    At the end of the 25-metre track, the racer hands over the frying pan to the next racer. The clock stops when all four racers have completed the race.

    Teams should assemble in the central courtyard by 11:30 a.m. for pre-race briefing. Team costumes are encouraged, and there is a prize for best team costume.
