Leg 1 - Southport to Aintree
Leg 1: (date to be confirmed) - Southport to Aintree Racecourse
Well, we have decided on the first leg of our walk. The destination will be Aintree Racecourse for Grand National day but the question was where to start? We will start with a shortish route for the first leg and will be heading off from Red Rum's old yard in Southport behind Ginger McCain's old car showroom.
He was second twice all within a five-year period 1973-1977. This amazing feat has never been repeated and racing scholars believe it will remain so. Red Rum was trained on Southport sands and was stabled in the yard behind the car showroom in Upper Aughton Road along with 21 other racehorses.
