Racing Events You’ll Want to See at Chelmsford City Racecourse This November


It’s crazy to think that Christmas is just under two months away and soon it’ll be the end of the year. But fear not! There are still plenty of races to take place at Chelmsford City Racecourse this November. You’ll be spoilt for choice!

There will be six racing events taking place, as well as two non-raceday events, which you can see details about here (link to November post).

You’ll be needing your hats and scarves at this time of year, but it will be so worth it watching the events unfold underneath the floodlights.
