Pancake Race -- team sign-up

  • The Great Pancake Race starts at 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2016, in the central courtyard.

    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 by 9:30 a.m. for pre-race briefing. Team costumes are encouraged, and there is a prize for best team costume.
