Youngsters from North Somercotes CE Primary School, Somercotes Academy, Somercotes Stars Pre-School and Treasure Chest Day Nursery all joined in with the annual event, which has taken place in the village for over half a century.
Teachers, teenagers and other adults also joined in the fun on Tuesday (March 5).
The primary school’s head teacher, Paul Floyd, said: “It was a wonderful afternoon.
“The children participated so enthusiastically, really cheering each other on.
“The Pancake races are a great tradition of our village and it is an honour for our school to host, as we have done for the last four years.
“It was a pleasure having the children of Somercotes Stars Pre-School, Treasure Chest Day Nursery and Somercotes Academy join us, as well as many other members of our church school family.
“This is a real family event that brings our whole community together.”
