Horwich Festival of Racing 12th to 17th June 2018
Originally known as Horwich Carnival Races, the event was re-named to reflect the wide variety of sporting activities which now take place on the closed roads of central Horwich during the 2 day festival.
Over the years the Festival of Racing has staged the British Cycling Elite Men’s and Women’s Circuit Championships attracting future Olympians including Jason and Laura Kenny, Dame Sarah Storey and Katie Archibald, the British Para-cycling Circuit Championships, British Masters 5K national championships for running and walking, Penny Farthing road racing, Sprint Orienteering, Unicycle National Championship and since 2015 Triathlon.
This year the week prior to the festival weekend will see a range of additional events including the running mini tour, trail and fell races and a cycle hill climb.
Over the last few years Lostock A.C. has organised the running events for the Horwich Festival of Racing including the British Masters 5K national championships for running, Horwich Open 5k and 1 Lap Fun Run. This year we are restarting the Horwich Festival of Racing Mini Tour Races comprising a trail race, fell race and road race.
In 2015 Lostock A.C. introduced an invitation triathlon to the Festival of Racing and in 2018 will present the first open triathlon.
