Cartmel has only ever staged national hunt racing but, despite being one of the smallest tracks in Britain, has the longest run-in in the country with a half-mile race to the line from the final obstacle on both the hurdle and chase courses. That final obstacle is hidden from view from those adjacent to the finish line but can be seen from the centre of the Paddock, where huge crowds congregate on bank holiday weekends when Cartmel stages the majority of its fixtures. The Paddock itself, which contains the grandstand and hospitality area, is separated from the Course enclosure, which includes a fairground, by a chute on which the winning post is situated.

The course is geared up nowadays to attract tourists seeking an alternative to the delights of the nearby Lake District and the track can be found on the old border of Cumbria and Lancashire on the Holker Estate in the grounds of the former Cartmel Priory, owned by Lord Cavendish.  By road, access is via Junction 36 of the M6 to the A590 (signposted Barrow-in-Furness), though the route gets very congested on racedays. The nearest railway stations are Calk-in-Cartmel and Grange-over Sands and a bus service operates from both on racedays.

Though hard to reach and only offering modest prize money, Cartmel gets a good mixture of entries from all parts of the country and Richard Guest’s runners do well, while Nigel Twiston-Davies and Brian Ellison’s hurdlers and Sophie Leech’s chasers are also usually worth following.
