Annual Pancake Race: Tuesday 5th March 2019

Dursley's annual Pancake Race is held on Shrove Tuesday each year. The race is traditionally held in Parsonage Street at 12 noon. Depending on the number of runners who have entered, "heats" are held with the fastest runners qualifying for the grand final.

In February 2010, Dursley Town Council resolved to resurrect the annual Pancake Race, and to provide a trophy for the winner.

Each year a local charity benefits from the entry fees and any other monies raised during the event.

The 2019 race will be held on 5th March. All proceeds will go towards the Henlow Court Activity Fund.
