The Main Event #LivvysRaceDay

12:45pm Alan Coe and Bob Champion MBE (winner of the 1981 Grand National) left The Hare and Hounds with the horses, ready to embark on their 100 mile drive to Fakenham race course.

After Bob Champion and Aldaniti won the 1981 Grand National, the interest and enthusiasm generated by "racing’s greatest fairytale" led to the foundation in 1983 of The Bob Champion Cancer Trust. Five years later, nearly to the day of the victory, the Bob Champion Cancer Research Unit was opened within the Royal Marsden NHS Trust Hospital in Sutton, Surrey.

The drive, which was started by Bob Champion, winner of the 1981 Grand National, Ended at the winning post of the racecourse after Mr Coe drives up the final furlong of the course.

A race was named after Olivia and she will present the winners on the day.
