The MK Rose’s annual Corporate Pancake Day Race is taking place at the MK Rose in Campbell Park on Shrove Tuesday, 13 February 2024, from 11.30am. Teams of four, from local businesses and organisations are invited to sign up and compete for the title of ‘MK Corporate Pancake Day Race Winner 2024’. This year we are also delighted to welcome the return of the Para-Pancake Race, following its successful debut last year.

Entry fee is just £65 per team and the race will start at 11.55am to match the time on the pillar at the Milton Keynes Rose celebrating the famous race in Olney.

The Milton Keynes Rose was opened in 2013 and, last year, was central to MK Food Bank’s World Record breaking MK CAN. It provides all local people and organisations with a place to celebrate, contemplate and commemorate the things that are significant to them.

Commenting on the upcoming race, Julie Dawes, Events and Community Engagement Manager at The Parks Trust, said “We’re excited to once again invite local businesses and organisations to join the annual race, that puts the fun in fundraising – all of which funds special projects and future pillars at the MK Rose. The pillars are a great reflection of our diverse community, recording dates of events associated with Milton Keynes’ past and present.”

Debbie Brock, Chair of the Milton Keynes Rose Trust adds “Together with our Parks Trust partners, we’re proud of the Shrove Tuesday pillar and traditions – it’s a fantastic fixture in the Milton Keynes Rose Calendar, and we can’t wait to see which teams will win the 2024 trophies.”

100% of entry fees paid by participating businesses will go to this very special cause. More information, including sign-up details can be found on theparkstrust.com/pancakerace

Entries close on Monday 5 February 2024. Spaces filled up very quickly last year, so it’s recommended to sign-up as soon as possible.
