Pancake Day Race Sign-Ups Begin Saturday
02/09/2011

Cheri Bevis wins the 2010 International Pancake Day Race in 1:03.
Liberal, Kansas—Racers may begin signing up for Mar. 8 Pancake Day races on Saturday at the Tourist Information Center in Liberal. Sign-ups will continue until 4 p.m. on Feb. 26. These sign-ups are for all races and all age groups, except for the Mar. 5 Pancake Chase. The number of entrants allowed in each race is limited to 15, and a category will be closed once that limit is reached. There is no entry fee. No early or late sign-ups will be accepted. RACE CATEGORIES The International Race The International Race is the main event, and this will be 62nd match-up between the women of Liberal, Kansas, and Olney, England. This race is limited to women age 18 or older with a Liberal address who have “domestic duties.” (High school students who are 18 should enter the youth division.) Women who sign up for the International Race the first week of sign-ups will be eligible for free workouts at the Wellness Center at Seward Community College/Area Technical School (entrants will be given details at the time they sign up). Men’s Pacer Race The Men’s Pacer Race is open to all men ages 18 and older (except those still enrolled in high school, who will run in the youth division). Women’s Last Chance Race The Last Chance race is open to women ages 50 and older. (Women who are over 50 may enter the main International Race if they prefer, as long as they meet the Liberal residence requirement.) Youth Races This category is for teens ages 14-18 who live in Liberal. The youth division was added last year, and 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 is a 75-yard dash and will be held immediately after the children’s races conclude. Pancake Day organizers would like to encourage high school students to enter, since USD 480 is closed in honor of Pancake Day. Winners will receive medals only and no monetary prizes, so high school athletes can enter without losing eligibility. Any entrant under 18 must have a parent or guardian present to sign the entry form. Children’s Races Children from ages 3-13 who live in Liberal are eligible, and each age year and gender competes in a separate category, offering lots of room for Liberal’s youngest Pancake Day Racers. The child’s parent or guardian must be present to sign the entry form. For more information on any race, call 620-624-6423. Sign-ups will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday and will continue during regular business hours until 4 p.m. Feb. 26 at the Tourist Information Center, One Yellow Brick Road, across from the Coronado Museum. Hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday, and 8 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturdays.
