A Guide to Chepstow Race Course

Overview

 Chepstow racecourse opened for business in 1925 and since 1949 has been the home of the Welsh Grand National which runs every December. It is predominantly known as a Jumps course, although it does also hold Flat Racing meetings.

The course is a rough undulating oval circuit with an external spur marking the start point for all races. This spur is on a decline until it meets the main oval. The finishing straight is a massive 5 furlongs long. The layout of the course also allows for a straight mile course.

The course is left handed and there are 11 fences to navigate on a complete circuit. The course is long for a racetrack, the oval area is 1 mile and seven furlongs with the extra spur making the entire course approximately 2 miles long. There are 11 fences to be jumped per circuit.

Chepstow holds 32 racing fixtures each year.
