Racing at Wincanton Racecourse

The second Combat Stress Families and Armed Forces Raceday will be held at Wincanton Racecourse on Sunday 23rd October 2016, by courtesy of The Jockey Club and Wincanton Racecourse. Gates open at 11.00am and the first race will take place at 1.50pm.

The generous support of those who attended the first fundraising day in 2014 helped to raise just over £50,000 for Combat Stress, the veterans’ mental health charity. The charity is now supporting more than 5,900 veterans and their families, a greater number than at any time in its history.

It'll be half term and families will be able to enjoy an action packed day of top class jump racing and plenty of entertainment. Come dressed up as your movie superhero, princess or real-life hero! Adults are encouraged to get involved and enter the family into our fancy dress competition.

The Course Enclosure will be transformed into a playground for your little superheroes with loads of FREE adventurous activities for the family to get involved in between the thrilling races, provided by Avon Valley Adventure & Wildlife Park.

Wincanton Racecourse has a host of food and drinks outlets with offers suitable for all the family.
