National Student Raceday

National Student Raceday

The first National Student Raceday on 26 October will see six UK racecourses offer students discounted entry.

For just £10 with a valid NUS card, students can enjoy a day of horse racing at any of the following courses;

  • Aintree
  • Chepstow
  • Doncaster
  • Newbury
  • Stratford
  • Wolverhampton

With these six courses spread across the country there should be one nearby, which combined with good travel links at all, should mean one is easily accessible.

The ticket includes admission to the track and a racecard, along with a food and drink voucher.

Forecast

26 October - Will racegoers need umbrellas or sunglasses at the country's first ever National Student Raceday? Check the forecast to find out.

Spectators, owners and trainers will be looking for the perfect course conditions to suit their chosen horse and rider, and to make for an exciting day of racing.

On race day, course officials will check the course conditions and inform the owners and jockeys. This information also helps those who have an interest in the race.

Owners will be looking for the course to be classed as 'good' which means the ground will be neither too hard or too soggy.

Dress codes tend to be relaxed, but if you fancy getting glammed up then this provides the perfect opportunity to relax with your friends in style. Just remember to check the forecast to see if you'll be needing a jacket!
