Following on from their Racing Reminiscence Day, Catterick Racecourse have announced the plans for the first of their popular August Family Days for 2023.  

The first of the days this year will be the Salute Our Heroes Family Day on Tuesday 8 August in support of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. The first race will go off at 2.50pm and the last at 5.45pm, leaving plenty of time for racegoers to enjoy the activities at the course.  

Emma Stevenson, General Commercial Manager said: “It’s great to be working with ABF The Soldiers’ Charity again this year to give something back to our community. We always look forward to welcoming the next generation of racegoers to our family days – it’s a great way for the whole family to enjoy some time together!” 

The younger fans can enjoy a huge range of free activities such as a bungee run and bouncy castles. There will also be chances to win a trip to Lightwater Valley Family Adventure Park, using the clues in the treasure hunt.  

Catterick Racecourse will also offer complimentary admission to this fixture for all military personnel and their families. Military tickets can be collected from the Catterick Garrison Headquarters or from the Racecourse Office.
