Carlisle Racecourse is situated at Blackwell on the outskirts of the historic border city of Carlisle. Set in open countryside, the undulating course provides high quality racing every month of the year staging eleven national hunt meetings from September to April and nine flat meetings between April and August.

Among the many highlights are the Christmas and Easter National Hunt fixtures, the prestigious two day June flat meeting at which the historic Carlisle Bell and Cumberland Plate are run, and the popular summer racenights.

Excellent road, rail and air links make this picturesque track easily accessible from all parts of the country. Carlisle Racecourse is the ideal place to entertain business associates, customers, staff of friends and family in a unique relaxed atmosphere. Few other sporting events can match the excitement, glamour and colourful spectacle of a day at the races.
