Winter racing at its best
Our club holds a premier race each year, on the last Saturday in July.
The goal of our committee is to give you the best experience possible so we organise all the features which contribute to a fun day, great comradery and everything you would expect to be associated with the event.
This is a premier meeting with a full programme of races, promotion prizes, Fashion in the Field; children’s entertainment, food and drink options and most of all a FUN day at the races.
Race day in 2020 was Saturday 25 July but has unfortunately had to be cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions. The provisional date for next year is 31 July 2021.
There are many sponsorship opportunities at the Taumarunui Racing Club’s annual race meeting.
Sponsors include companies wishing to promote their business, individual sponsors with a love of all things Taumarunui, special occasion sponsors such as birthdays or reunions – anything at all actually! Contact us for more details.
