There is only one event described as the world’s greatest steeplechase, and that is The Grand National at Aintree Racecourse, sponsored by Randox Health. The Grand National is the king of endurance racing, with jockeys racing over 4 miles and 30 fences in some of the most challenging conditions found for thoroughbreds.
A packed field of 40 horses and their jockeys line up for the ultimate test, with a £1 million prize fund at stake. Over 600 million (that is just under 10% of the world’s population) tune in every year to witness this remarkable spectacle, with only 70,000 lucky people able to attend in person.
Beyond the Randox Health Grand National, the meeting holds a further 20 high profile races over the three days, with each day bringing a different tone and level of excitement.
Thursday is affectionately known as Liverpool’s Day and is generally a more relaxed day. The racecourse is part of Liverpool’s rich history and honours the day to its people and their culture.
Friday is famously Ladies Day, earmarked by many as the ‘fun day’ of the festival. Guests can expect a colourful and highly memorable day as a sea of colours, fountains of bubbles and famous faces descent on Aintree.Skip to Hospitality Map
