Aiken Fall Steeplechase

Audubon Drive & Powerhouse Road Ford Conger Field
Aiken, SC 29802

Description

Steeplechasing includes all the thrills and speed of horse racing at flat tracks. It mixes in the precision of jumping to create a hybrid not unlike hurdle events in track and field where the premium is on speed, but the concern is focused squarely on the jumps. The races are between two and four miles in length. The fences are manmade 52-inch hurdles called National Fences or timber jumps constructed of posts and rails at varying heights. The Aiken Fall Steeplechase is a one day event on Saturday, with a pre-race warm up party on Friday night. Watch horses pound the plush turf and soar over fences at the Aiken Fall Steeplechase! Post time 1 pm.
