Guildford Town Centre Races

Guildford Town Centre Races

5th July 2023

The Event

A consistent highlight of the Guildford Festival, the annual Town Centre Races are fought on Guildford’s notoriously tough course, with its cobbled climb up the High Street and tight, narrow corners out of North Street.


This year the Guildford Town Centre Races will culminate with Round 3 of the National Circuit Series, on an extended course, attracting some of the countries top men and women and certain to make for a riveting spectacle of sport.


As well as the main event a programme of supporting events is also offered including the ever popular ‘youngsters’ races where many top cyclists of the future get their first opportunity to ride in such a big event. The biggest applause is often saved for the smallest riders!


Come along and enjoy a summer evening of sport in the heart of Guildford!
