Against the backdrop of the beautiful English Lake District, Cartmel Races rekindles the spirit of the original steeplechases. Large crowds descend on the centre of the racecourse for picnics and parties while the horses race around the outside.The 2016 fixture list has been published and the new season commences on Saturday 28th May. When we're not racing, the Louis Roederer Restaurant, located in the grandstand, makes an excellent venue for private functions, meetings and events. The surrounding parkland is regularly used by Clubs and Associations for camping rallies - for more information, go to our non-racing events page.
Cartmel has been allocated 9 fixtures for 2016, following the reinstatement of the Saturday afternoon fixture on the Whit Bank Holiday weekend, 28th May.
The new two day June meeting has also been retained, as well as the two day barbecue meeting in July and the two day Bank Holiday meeting in August.
