A Guide to Aintree Race Course

Most famous for hosting the Grand National, the Aintree racecourse in Liverpool consists of two main racing circuits.

The main National circuit is the only British racecourse that has fences made of Spruce and infamous obstacles such as The Chair, Bechers Brook and the Canal Turn make their home here. It is a left handled circuit that is 2.2 miles long.

Inside the main National Hurdles Course is the shorter and easier Mildmay Course. This course is also left handed, is 1 mile 3 furlongs long and has tighter turns.

Apart from the Grand National meeting that takes place over three days in April, the course also hosts meetings in May, June, October, November and December.
