This trial race will be hand timed and results at

This race will be held over the bridle ways, historic race course of Norton and the famous Langton Walled gallops: training ground of race horse champions.

Langton Wold Racecourse and the racing industry in Malton and Norton is strong and significant. The Langton Wold race meeting had began before 1692 – By the time of its loss to enclosure and the plough in 1862, Langton Wold had come to be regarded as one of the finest courses in England.

After the enforced closure of the Langton Wold track in 1862, racing (National Hunt racing/Steeplechasing) took place at Orchard Fields 1867-70. National Hunt racing was revived once more after 1882 at Highfield, adjoining William I’Anson’s training grounds, close to the Beverley Road in Norton. Meets were held every year until 1903 when I’Anson extended his training grounds onto the racecourse site.

John Scott dominated the sport between 1832 and 1862, winning nearly every classic. His stables were atWhitewall.WhenWilliam I’Anson’s Blink Bonnie won the Epsom Derby in 1857 “Malton church bells rang…and the pubs stayed open all night.

Collect race numbers on the day.

There will also be a number of childrens races available to enter on the day which will start at 10am.


"I took part in this race last year when it was a 12k which actually turned out to be a (very well organised) 13k. 

"I explained to the organiser that a genuine 10k would be far more attractive to Club runners, so they asked me to plot a new course. I have done just that and it is a real cracker. Tough enough for your top runners but in beautiful surroundings and very interesting for everyone else. It also takes "multi-terrain" to a new level, as I counted 12 different surfaces on the way round including, bizarrely, a short carpeted section where racehorses transfer into the field.

"4k, 5k and toddler races also available and the event also coincides with the “Malton Festival of Racing” where local trainers open their yards to the public for the day. So perfect for a family day out in this great part of the county."
