Cheltenham Festival 2019 will take place over 4 days from Tuesday 12 March with the Cheltenham Gold Cup taking place on Friday 15 March. Here is the full Cheltenham Festival 2019 running order for races including dates, times, distances and grade plus information on where to buy tickets.
The Cheltenham Festival 2019 includes 28 top class National Hunt or ‘jump’ horse races. Sponsors and race names are liable to change.
In September 2017 it was announced that all races will have 48 hour declarations. This is great news for punters and racegoers who will now have more time to study the runners, riders and form.
We would advise you to avoid ticket touts and only to purchase official tickets from the Cheltenham racecourse website:
