The Longchamp Racecourse is located on beautiful Paris land between the Seine and the Bois de Boulogne. There are 4 courses, 1 big track, one medium, one small and a 1000-metre straight track. The Racetrack itself is 2,750 metres and there are 46 different starting points from 1,000 – 4,000 metres.
The unique shape of the track includes a famous rise, majestic descending turn and faux home straight. This makes the racecourse extremely challenging to navigate for the jockeys, offering an advantage to those familiar with the course.
The Longchamp racecourse venue spans over 55.5 hectares and is a favourite for many Parisians when it comes to a day out of leisure and relaxation. Because the track is so internationally well known, it is also visited by many tourists and there can be as many as forty percent of people visiting this famous racecourse from other countries, especially for special events like the prestigious Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.
