The annual Ilkley Rotary Pancake Races take place along The Grove in Ilkley on Shrove Tuesday on March 4.

The Pancake races start at 10.45am and the last race will take place around 1pm.

The event sees more than 200 school children competing, followed by the adult races for businesses and individuals. Organisers say fancy dress is not a requirement to enter the race but said it adds to the enjoyment on the day.

The event is organised by the Rotary Club of Ilkley and the main sponsors are Dacre, Son & Hartley, Mortens of Ilkley, Bettys Café and Shop, Ilkley, and Stray FM.

School children need to enter via their schools and businesses and individuals can enter by email to rotaryclubilkley@hotmail.co.uk or phone 07850 999929 or just arrive at the Bandstand on The Grove on the day.
