Description: Teams of four run with a pancake in a skillet and toss the pancake up in the air halfway through a 100 meter course. Once they complete an approximate 100 meter leg of a course they pass the skillet onto the next team member that repeats the course the opposite way. This is repeated until all four team members run their 100 meters. If they drop their pancake they must return back to their starting point and repeat. If their pancake (when flipped) does not reach an appropriate height (this is judged by referee) they must start over again.
First, second and third place win a prize. Costumes are encouraged as top costume also wins a prize.
