If you've never before experienced the drama and excitement of horseracing, there is no better time to get involved and sample the 'Sport of Kings' than at the country's first ever National Student Raceday! 

On Saturday 26 October, six of the country's top tracks at Aintree, Chepstow, Doncaster, Newbury, Stratford and Wolverhampton will be showcasing some of the best that racing has to offer – and it's only £10 with a valid NUS or Student ID card.

All six tracks offer fantastic viewing facilities, great bars, well-priced food and guides to help you through your day.

Dress codes tend to be relaxed, but if you fancy putting on your finery then you won’t look out of place. It is your chance to relax with friends in style, while possibly socialising with celebrities.

Your ticket includes admission to the track, a food and drink voucher, a free copy of the Racing Post and a race card. The six courses are spread around the country so there will be one in your vicinity. All are served by good travel links. To find your nearest racecourse, check out our map page.
