Uttoxeter Midlands Grand National

Having called Uttoxeter it’s home for 50 years, this Staffordshire town is synonymous with the Midlands Grand National. The class 1 race run every March is the second longest race in the National Hunt calendar, second only to the famous Grand National.

The History

The Midlands Grand National first ran in 1969. It runs over a distance of 4 miles and 2 furlongs (though the distance has been altered many times over 50 years) and 24 fences are jumped throughout. No horse has ever won the title twice, which is quite unusual for a race run for this many years.
