With People finding the beauty spots around East Yorkshire to use for their daily exercise under the current lockdown rulings Beverley Racecourse has found itself been an hot spot and now the main track is at risk.

Sally Iggulden, the chief executive of Beverley Racecourse, has released the following plea:

“The increase in walkers on the racecourse has really taken its toll and we now have a bare path the entire circuit on the racing surface. We are fighting hard to keep the Racecourse afloat in these troubled times – the company dates back to 1690 and is one of the oldest in the country. Whilst there is no racing at present, we are working closely with Government so we can resume as soon as it is safe to do so, but the current damage to the sports turf could well hinder this. So we are issuing a plea to help us out – we know it’s a lovely walk, but please consider walking on the many acres available on the Hurn (centre of the racecourse) or on the glorious Westwood. If you really must walk on the track, please keep behind the white running rail. A small team are working hard each day to keep the track and grounds in tip top condition and would really appreciate your help”

Stay Home, Stay Safe.
