There aren’t many places in the world that have pancake racing and tossing competitions every year. But Troutbeck village is such a place.
Tossing, tosser, etc is said loudly more often than at any other time of the year as competitors compete in a series of competitions against their age groups. A 100m pancake race plus a tossing competition happen and it’s free to enter.
The day isn’t without theatrics, we have teams entered from local hotels and this fine gentleman in his fancy outfit and bell sets it all off and mc’s the day.
Communities like Troutbeck really come together around events like this, even if we are all fighting to be tosser of the year!
