This raceday has now passed, click here view our upcoming racedays at Warwick Racecourse.

What better way to spend a Sunday than to get out in the fresh air, enjoying great racing as well as a host of countryside activities on Sunday 8 March.

 

The day is run in aid of the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and is a lovely occasion to bring all of the family to. 

 

We welcome all four-legged friends to Countryside Day for a fantastic day celebrating all countryside activities. The inaugural running of the Pug Gold Cup and a Dog Show will take place with five fun classes including 'Waggiest tail', 'Best trick', 'Golden oldie', 'Young handler' and 'Top rescue Dog'. Find out more information below.

 

All dogs must be kept on a lead and be well behaved.

 

Please find the information below about car parking arrangements for Countryside Day.

For our Countryside Raceday, we are pleased for the first time to welcome our four-legged friends! Bring your dog along to accompany you and your family racing.

 

There will be a variety of pet entertainment and events to keep everyone amused throughout the afternoon, including the inaugural Pug Gold Cup.

 

To enter your Pug into the Pug Gold Cup, please email Alastair.Watson@thejockeyclub.co.uk

 

We have a variety of entertainment and events for you and your dog, view here.

We have endured the wettest February since records began, this unfortunately has made the Centre of the Course inaccessible for vehicles and parking. This is no reason to put you off from enjoying the day as there is ample car parking within close proximity to the Racecourse.

 

If you have anyone that has mobility issues or just doesn’t fancy a walk you can of course drop them off at The Main Entrance on Bread and Meat Close and then go to park.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact the office on 01926 405560 for further details.
