Applications are now open for the fifth year of The Corinthian Challenge, a three leg charity race series which will take place at The Curragh, Naas and Leopardstown Racecourses from 19th July – 17th October this year.
The series offers participants a once in a lifetime opportunity like no other, the chance to experience what it is like to be a jockey riding at some of Ireland’s best tracks. The Series is limited to Amateur riders and those who have an A1 licence can apply once they have no more than five winners, and all applicants will be assessed at RACE and will undergo an interview process prior to acceptance. They will also have to raise €10,000 for Irish Injured Jockeys, maintain their weight and fitness throughout the series and engage in race coaching to understand how to ride a race and each course effectively.
Riders will not only have the chance of winning each race and will also accumulate points for placings throughout the series with the overall winner of the series to be announced at the final race in Leopardstown on October 17th.
Previous Corinthian Challengers describe the series as, unbelievable, the best experience of my life, adrenaline pumping, the ultimate personal challenge, a thousand dreams come true and epic!
“Following on from the huge success of our series last year, we want to build on the concept and make it really attractive for race entrants, racecourses, racegoers and for the media to really engage with over the period of time and follow each of the participants’ journey throughout the series.
Michael Higgins,General Manager of Irish Injured Jockeys
