History of the Grimthorpe Chase
Prior to the early 1980s the Grimthorpe Chase was run over 2mile and 150 yards. The distance was then upped dramatically nearly doubling to a stamina testing four miles and 100 yards.
The distance was changed again to the current trip in the 1990s, when it was run as the Velka Pardubicka Grimthorpe Chase, a reference to Velká pardubická, a famous race run in the Czech Republic over varied obstacles. The race is now considered to be a trial for the Grand National.
The race is named in honour of the Grimthorpe family who have been involved in racing for many years.
