Hertford College Pancake Race
4 March 2014
We shall be holding the world famous Old Quad Pancake Race at 1 pm on Shrove Tuesday, Tuesday 4 March. All members of college may enter (staff, students and fellows), and racing is carried out in heats in strict accordance with Newton’s Rules and Statutes. A cup is awarded, for keeps, to the ‘Top Tosser’ who wins the final race. Although the kitchens are usually able to supply some quality racing pans, it is often advisable to bring your own. We have found that woks offer a substantial aerodynamic disadvantage in this sport. There will also be pancakes available for eating as well as tossing. Gather in the quad.
