Cartmel is set in wooded parkland in a picturesque valley in the Lake District and is an ideal venue for a relaxing day at the races. The racecourse itself is blessed with character and, apart from having the longest run-in in the country, it can also boast the highest daily average attendance amongst National Hunt courses. Just over a mile in circumference, this sharp track undoubtedly favours those that race up with the pace.
