Another fantastic Pancake festival!
This year we had a record 30 teams turn out to race in what were reasonably good weather conditions, in fact the best in the last four years!
The races started off relatively relaxed, but as expected, soon became competitive as teams qualified and went through to the semi-finals. The crowds were on the sidelines cheering everyone on and the atmosphere was great.
The teams were certainly enthusiastic and there were some nail biting moments with some extremely close finishes.
After some seriously speedy walking, Wagada came through to claim the Walking race winners trophy for the second year running.
The running race final saw local restaurant team Lussmanns going head to head with our guest team from Japan, who amazingly beat Lussmanns to the post to take the winners title (we have not let them take the trophy back home with them though)
We love doing this event it is so much fun and also raises a fantastic amount of money. It is a real demonstration of just how supportive our community is.
A flippin’ great £3,100 was raised in this years St Albans Pancake Festival.
Thank you to our volunteers, teams, sponsors and supporters – we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
