Countdown to Boxing Day

MARKET Rasen Racecourse is launching a Countdown to Christma swith a series of exclusive online offers for its big Boxing Day fixture and New Year meetings.

Some are ‘money can’t buy’ treats, like walking the racetrack with the Clerk of the Course.

Each day from Thursday, December 15 until Christmas Eve, one new offer will be posted online at

Racecourse managing director Pip Kirkby said: “This is a great way to land a super Christmas gift for sports fans or to make a visit to Market Rasen Races extra special.”

Anyone who isn’t lucky enough to win one of the Christmas treats can still enjoy big savings on tickets for Boxing Day by buying in advance.

There are reductions of up to £4 on adult ticket for advance purchase.

Accompanied children under the age of 18 are admitted to the racecourse free of charge.

A crowd of 10,000 people is expected on Boxing Day when the feature race is the Clugston Lincolnshire National.

For 2012 the racecourse has an extra two fixtures in comparison to this year, taking the grand total to 21.

Ladies Day and Ladies Night are on the fixture list again.

Musice night will also return on Saturday, September 1 following the huge success of this year’s Peter Andre concert.
