With the annual Lowestoft Pancake Day races returning from noon on Tuesday, February 25 a call has gone out for some flipping good teams to join in the fun.

Event organisers Lowestoft Vision - the Business Improvement District for Lowestoft which is managed by Suffolk Chamber of Commerce - is now encouraging local companies, clubs and mascots to enter this fun and friendly relay race.

Held in Lowestoft town centre on London Road North, outside Halifax bank, last year's event saw a dozen teams having some flipping great fun as they were cheered by enthusiastic crowds.

A Mascot Race will start the action at this year's event before businesses battle it out in the relay race as teams of three compete against each other over a short course, flipping pancakes as they dash the distance.

Those taking part will be aiming to pick up the trophy from last year's winners - British Heart Foundation's Hearty and the Marina Theatre.

Places are available for both races on a first come first served basis, to enter a team email amie@lowestoftvision.co.uk
