Place your bets: Brighton welcomes the Marathonbet Festival Of Racing

Summertime wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the races and few days out have the charm or the spectacular views of Brighton Racecourse. This August, Brighton Racecourse is welcoming the three day Marathonbet Festival of Racing.

Dating back to 1783, the iconic venue will be teaming with jockeys, horses, racegoers all dressed to impress looking for a win from August 9th to 11th.

Opening the festival on Wednesday 9th August is the Marston’s Race Day that features Brighton’s richest race – the Hobgoblin Brighton Mile. Thursday brings the hugely popular Route Mobile Ladies Day and closing the festival is the Checkatrade Festival Finale on Friday 11th August. Throughout the three-day event there will be entertainment, music, food trucks, vintage bars, a ladies lawn and of course seven exciting races to get your heart pumping!
