Olney Pancake Race 2019
The annual pancake race takes place on Shrove Tuesday each year. The story goes that on Shrove Tuesday in 1445 a lady, hard at work in her kitchen heard the church bell tolling for Mass. So she ran to the church carrying her still clutching her pan.
Now each year the race is for ladies with frying pan and pancake and the run from the town centre all the way to the church.
