Warwick Grand National Run
A brand new event from Raceways Events CIC! Taking place at Warwick Racecourse, the event takes place on Sunday 5th April (the weekend of the Grand National), participants will run 7km (the distance of the Grand National), and of course all runners will be dressed as horses!
Horse costumes can be included in the cost of your entry, or if you prefer you can bring your own! A bespoke medal, chip timing, post-race snacks, race photography all come as standard in all of our events.
There will also be a Kids Fun Run – at a small charge if the children would also like a horse costume (which is very much recommended)!
Entry includes a bespoke medal, short sleeved technical t-shirt and snacks which you’ll receive at the finishing line. It also includes water at the start / finish and drink stations.

Once entered, if you’re unable to partake in the event and would like to to transfer to an alternative Raceways event please email the organiser at least 1 month prior to the event date.
Runners are not permitted to transfer their race number to another runner if they cannot run as this runner will not be insured if they are running in another runners name and will therefore be held liable if there was an accident. UKA members will be in breach of their licence if another runner takes their place which may result in a potential ban from future UKA affiliated events.
First-hand event reviews from people who’ve been there, done that and got the breathable T-shirt, really help everyone choose their next event.
