We are also excited to announce that we will be having a BIG Easter Egg Hunt taking place before the first race. The hunt will take place from 12.00pm until 2.00pm (you can enter any time in that period), there will be some fantastic prizes on offer including race day tickets, Forest Jump High Ropes and Friars Walk vouchers.
