IN PICTURES: All the fun and laughter from Ripon Pancake Races

Take a look at Ripon’s residents, schools and businesses, as they raced down Kirkgate for the city’s favourite 600 year old tradition on Shrove Tuesday.

Pancake race participants lined-up ready in a race which began at the Cathedral View Cafe, and finished at the Royal Oak pub today to mark the last day before Lent.

Racers earned themselves a pancake courtesy of Squid and Tonic, and a Cadbury’s Cream Egg donated by Hemingways Marketing Services.

Schoolchildren, businesses, residents, the clergy and the cathedral’s staff members look forward to the annual tradition which brings people together in the joyous occasion.

Take a look at these excited faces as they battle it out to reach the finish line.
