Volunteer today for racing charities!


Charities working across the sport are frequently in need of valuable support from volunteers – on an ongoing basis or just to support a particular event.

Volunteering is a great way to help the causes you support, and can even boost your CV and help you make new friendships.

Summer Mile Family Raceday

Saturday 13th July 2019
A fixture that caters for everyone. Perfect for socialising with friends, the racecourse is in full midsummer bloom and the pace is relaxed. There is a competitive seven-race card, live music, elegant picnic lawns, and eclectic Champagne and cocktail bars to enjoy.

For the second year in a row, Summer Mile Family Raceday will also feature a dedicated and separate family zone with a host of attractions to thrill children aged 4-15. All Under 18s tickets are free and kids under 12 will also be able to enjoy free food at certain outlets in the family enclosure.

The family-only enclosure, located in the Old Paddock, will be divided into zones, including Entertainers, Lifestyle, Explorers and Thrillseekers. In addition to clip clop pony and fairground rides there will be workshops, and a stage with music between races. All activities are free.

The Group 2 Fred Cowley MBE Memorial Summer Mile is the highlight of the race card and one of the most important mile races of the season.

Gates open at 11am. Visit Ascot’s website for further information and tickets.
