C-19 Badges

Pontefract currently has an allocation of six badges per runner.

Additional badges can be applied for – contact the course directly for this. Any regional restrictions, the number of other owners attending on the day, and the “rule of six” will be factors influencing if your request can be accommodated.

Owners who live in an area currently under regional or local restrictions are reminded to follow the Government advice in that area.

Please also check your emails from PASS and the racecourse website for further updates on badge allocation and specific attendance protocols.

News
For race meetings 'behind closed doors', many of the 'usual' functions at the Racecourse have had to be changed. Sadly, these changes include those facilities that are normally provided for Owners. 

To see how racing might look 'behind closed doors', and to find out about the 'Owners Zone' at Pontefract please click here 

We have also produced a number of Site Plans to show the changes visually.

Should you have any queries before returning to Pontefract, please contact us on 01977 781307 or by email.
