Bath Racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing venue located on Lansdown Hill, just north of Bath, Somerset, owned by Arena Racing Company.
The racecourse is a left-handed oval track of 1 mile 4 furlongs and 25 yards, with a run-in of nearly half-a-mile.
At 780 feet (238 m) above sea level Bath is Britain's highest flat racecourse, although National Hunt courses Hexham and Exeter are higher.
Racing was first recorded at Bath in 1728. During World War II it was used as a landing field by the Royal Air Force and named RAF North Stoke.
