With the International Race category less than half full, the Pancake Day Board is extending the sign-up deadline for adult race categories through Wed. Feb. 26. This includes the main International Race, the Women’s Last Chance Race, and the Men’s Pacer Race. Sign-ups for children and youth (ages 3-18) will still end today (Feb. 21) at 5 p.m.
The Olney International Race has a full slate, so Pancake Day organizers would like to challenge Liberal women to match that. Mar. 4 will be the 65th Pancake Day, and the Pancake Day Race has always been about community spirit, not who is fastest. The Pancake Board would like to encourage women who live in Liberal to take this opportunity to participate in a unique event that no other city in the United States can lay claim to.
Sign-ups are at the Liberal Recreation Center, 1109 W. 7th St. (in Blue Bonnet Park).
The number of contestants in each race is limited to 15, and a category will be closed once that limit is reached. There is no entry fee. No late sign-ups will be accepted.
