International field still wide open



• Special to the Leader & Times


Spaces are starting to fill in for the annual Pancake Day races, starting with the 3-year-old division all the way to the women’s International Pancake Race.

The 68th International Pancake Race will take place Feb. 28, and plans are under way for the traditional pancake breakfast that starts the day as well as preparations for the races that take place on Shrove Tuesday. 

All race sign-ups will begin  at 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. today and Friday at the Liberal Recreation Department and will continue from 8:30 a.m. to 5 next week. 

Girl and Boy racers ages 3-18 need to sign up quick, because only the first 15 to enter will get to run. The 6-year-old boys division is already full, but spaces remain in all other ages classifications.

Youth races will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by the Men’s Pacer Race at 11:40 a.m. and race events will conclude with the International Race at 11:55 a.m. 

Following the International Race the public is invited to attend the Shriving Service at 12:15 p.m. at First United Methodist Church. Prizes will be presented to the winners following the Shriving Service and a live video chat with Olney, England, is set for 1:15 p.m., also at First United Methodist Church.

The Pancake Day festivities will conclude at 3 p.m. with the parade. The parade route will run down Kansas Avenue from 11th Street to Trail Street. For more information about the Pancake Day festivites call the Pancake Day Hall of Fame at (620) 624-6423.
