The Marathonbet Festival of Racing

Fri 09 Aug

TIME TO PLACE YOUR BETS: BRIGHTON WELCOMES THE MARATHONBET FESTIVAL OF RACING

Summertime wouldn’t be complete without a day at the races and few days out have the charm or the spectacular views of our racecourse. It is the place to be this August, once again, for the three-day Marathonbet Festival of Racing, which will celebrate our 3rd year of an exciting partnership with the online bookmaker.

It is planned to be the festival of the summer where over 15,000 people will attend, 1,500 bottles of prosecco are consumed, 1,000 bowls of fresh strawberries are served and 7,000 pairs of high heels will be cast aside by the end of the three days!

Welcome to the highly anticipated and hugely popular Festival Finale. Culminating the Festival of Racing event, this fantastic day has grown every year and is now a must attend event. Its the perfect raceday to start the summer weekend.

Throughout this popular event there will be entertainment, food trucks, vintage pop-up bars, a lawn with a complimentary photobooth airstreamer, and, of course, seven exciting races to get your heart pumping.

Brighton Racecourse and Marathonbet will also be engaging with racing fans in the run-up to the festival with competitions to win prizes and tickets, so keep a look out on social media.

So pick your package, pick your outfit and pick your winner!

Children under the age of 18yrs are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.
