Online COVID-19 Learning

We will not pass on your details to any other organisation. Click here for full details on our Privacy Policy. 

All owners and guests attending with a declared runner are asked to complete online learning prior to your first behind closed doors raceday, to ensure that everyone has an understanding of COVID-19, social distancing, and hand and respiratory hygiene.

This learning only needs to be completed once (before your first racecourse visit) and you will receive a confirmation email for your records. You will not be asked to produce this email on arrival at the racecourse.

Please watch the videos below and complete this form, confirming that you have understood the information provided. To watch the videos, simply click on the links below and they will open automatically.

Note that general government guidance on COVID-19 in England, Scotland and Wales may vary at any time, so owners should ensure they are aware of any differences.

For any help with the online learning please contact the ROA on 01183 385680 or

ROA Members: please note, in order to receive a receipt to confirm completion of the course, please make sure you are NOT logged into the Members Area.
