Pancake Races-Created by a Woman

OLNEY PANCAKE RACE - Since 1445, a pancake race has been run in the town in Buckinghamshire on many Pancake Days.Tradition records that back in 1445, on Shrove Tuesday the "Shriving Bell" rang out to signal the start of the Shriving church service. On hearing the bell a local housewife, who had been busy cooking pancakes in anticipation of the beginning of Lent, ran to the church, frying pan still in hand, still in her apron and headscarf.
