WIN: Family tickets to bank holiday fun at Huntingdon Racecourse

HUNTINGDON Racecourse is preparing to welcome punters for some thrilling bank holiday racing - and we’ve got five family tickets up for grabs.

The traditional end of summer curtain-raiser will take place on August 29 with an action-packed day of racing in the pipeline.

As well as a full race card, visitors will be treated to a host of attractions.

There will be an inflatable obstacle course over which guests can pay to race against jockeys, a rugby shoot-out and a space-hopper Grand National.

A circus workshop, bungee run, pony rides and a behind-the-scenes tour of the racecourse are also on offer - with the course’s mascot Hugo the Hound on hand to keep the children entertained.

The family race day will be fundraising for the Racing Welfare charity, with support from online bookmaker Blue Square.

As well as general admission, there is a special family package available only by booking in advance - two adults, plus children and two free ice creams for �20. This must be booked online at quoting ‘August2011’.
