The Corinthian Challenge Charity Race will be held again this year, however, instead of a series of races, it will be one big race being held at the home of The Classics, The Curragh Racecourse on 21st July 2024.  

Applications are now open and participants who join this event will not only get to immerse themselves in the world of horse racing but also contribute to a noble cause.  The event promises a thrilling and unforgettable experience as they experience firsthand what it takes to be a jockey. The bond formed between riders, the exhilaration of the races, and the satisfaction of making a difference by supporting IIJ make this opportunity truly special. Join us in this exciting initiative and make a difference while having the time of your life!

The series is limited to Amateur riders and those who hold a A1 licence can apply once they have not had no more than five winners, all others will have to be assessed by IIJ at RACE and will undergo an interview process prior to acceptance. They will also have to raise a minimum of  €3,000 for Irish Injured Jockeys, maintain their weight and fitness and engage in race coaching to understand how to ride a race and each course effectively. All riders must also source their own horses.

Previous challengers describe the series as, unbelievable, the best best experience of my life, adrenaline pumping, the ultimate personal challenge, a thousand dreams come true and epic!
