Twelve members of the public will follow in the footsteps of Frankel and Frankie Dettori when they saddle up at York Racecourse to race and raise thousands of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support, in the Best Western Ride of Their Lives.

The 12 riders - who include a mother of two, a nurse and a salon owner, face months of intense training before riding fully-fledged thoroughbred racehorses in front of a bumper crowd at the Macmillan Charity Raceday - which will see its 46th year on Saturday 11th June 2016, having already raised over £6.5m for charity since its inception.

We're amazingly proud of their commitment to this challenge and are behind them all the way. Join Team Macmillan and Best Western and make a difference to people affected by cancer.
