A Guide to Hexham Race Course

A Guide To Hexham Race Course

Situated in Northumberland, England Hexham Racecourse was founded in 1890 by carpet factory owner Charles Henderson. His love for riding – and for all sports in general – led him to build a racecourse 800 feet above sea level at High Yarridge.

The highlight of the Hexham calendar year is the Heart of All England Hunter Chase, which is run in early May which is open to horses over 5 years old. It is run over a course distance of 3 miles and 41 yards and there are 19 fences to navigate.

The Hexham course is a left handed oval circuit measuring 1 mile and 4 furlongs long with 10 fences per circuit. The course is undulating with a steep uphill section before a short flat run in.  It is the most northerly National Hunt course in England.


Bullet Points
