The 2016 Cheltenham Festival dates have been announced and the National Hunt horse racing extravaganza will take place between Tuesday 15th March and Friday 18th March 2016.
The 2016 Cheltenham Festival is almost here and we're getting seriously excited here at CheltenhamFestival.net HQ! We're already counting down the days to the 'Greatest Show on Turf' and we have the dates and the full schedule for the meeting.
The 27 races that make up the Cheltenham Festival are the most hotly contested of the entire racing calendar, with around 500 horses competing for over £3.4 million of win and place prize money which compete only with the Grand National in terms of prestige in the jump racing calendar.
While it is impossible to know what next year’s meeting will bring one thing is for certain: the action is sure to be explosive, exhilarating and thoroughly intriguing.
