Children ages 3-13 who would like to race on Pancake Day, Feb. 16, must sign
up between now and Feb. 6 at the Tourist Information Center. Each age year
and gender will compete in a separate race, offering plenty of spots for the
kids. For instance, eight-year-old girls will race only against other
eight-year-old girls. Each race will be limited to 15 contestants.
This year¹s Pancake Day races will also feature a new age category: all
youths ages 14-18 are invited to enter the youth division, with sign-ups
going on from now through Feb. 6 at the Tourist Information Center.
The new youth division will feature at least two races, one for men and one
for women. The number of racers who sign up will determine how many age
categories the racers will be grouped into. The youth division race will be
a 75-yard dash and will be held immediately after the children¹s races
Sign-up times are as follows: 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Feb. 1-5; and 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Sat. Feb. 6. No late sign-ups will be accepted.
Sign-ups will take place at the Tourist Information Center, 1 Yellow Brick
Road, across the street from the Coronado Museum. The child¹s parent or
guardian must be present to sign the entry form for all entrants except
those who are 18 years old.
