The course opened in 1997 thanks to the generosity of hunt stalwart Geoff Adams, and provides an excellent days entertainment for the whole family, with good views of the race course, betting facilities, picnic spaces, hound displays, trade stands, bars, food stalls, hospitality and children’s amusements.

Runners start with their back to the stream and jump one fence before taking a right-handed turn into home straight where they jump fence two. They race past the winning post to meet fence three before turning right handed and running slightly downhill where the course flattens out and the runners meet fences four, five and six. They disappear momentarily behind the rhubarb sheds before turning right-handed towards fences seven and eight. Immediately after fence eight they race briefly slightly right handed before straightening up and racing past the start to negotiate fence nine. There is a short run to the last fence from the final bend so it is crucial to get the inside line between penultimate and last fences.
