Pancake Day in will be celebrated with a double-header of athletic events designed to test the speed and skill of St Albans flippers.

On Shrove Tuesday this year residents can choose between a traditional pancake race, where entrants sprint, flip and sprint again, or a walking race where competitors flip continually.
