Additional Details:
Since 1950 an annual International Pancake Race, always on Shrove Tuesday, is between housewives of Liberal and Oleny, England. Racers must flip pancake once at beginning and at end of race. The race was originated by an Olney woman, late for church, who ran to service carrying her skillet, flipping her pancake, over 500 years ago.
