Horwich Festival of Racing - 21st June 2015

Welcome to the Horwich Festival of Racing, which over the past eleven years has grown to become one of the most popular sporting events in the North West.

The event, formerly known as Horwich Carnival Races, has a new title to reflect that it embraces both sporting excellence and community participation across a range of events and activities.

Over the years, more than 7,500 people both young and old, from Olympic and World Championship medallists to those taking part for the very first time have taken to the streets of Horwich, whether to compete for championship medals or simply to enjoy the experience.

The British Cycling Elite Mens and Womens Circuit Championships, the AAA 5K Road Race Championships and in 2010 the British Para-cycling Circuit Championship have been amongst the highlights of past years, whilst the British Masters Federation have now firmly settled on staging their 5K road running and walking championships in Horwich. Alongside them, events for youth and 2nd to 4th category cyclists, a schools cycle challenge, street cycle race and fun run have given opportunities for everyone to take part.
