The Willowdale Steeplechase has been a Chester County Mother’s Day tradition for over 27 years. Next year’s race, the 28th Running of the Willowdale Steeplechase, continues that tradition – but with a big twist.

The 2020 races will run SATURDAY – the day BEFORE Mother’s Day!

The races will run on Saturday, May 9, 2020. They’ll still be a big part of Mother’s Day weekend, but for those who have other family traditions on Mother’s Day itself, the Saturday race date will give them an opportunity to experience the thrill of the Willowdale Steeplechase and still honor their own special traditions.

The Willowdale Steeplechase, based in Kennett Square, PA, is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization which helps raise money to educate the public on stewardship of our natural resources; provide services to children with special needs and teach the next generation of large animal veterinarians through donations to The Stroud Water Research CenterQuest Therapeutic Services, Inc. and The University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine’s New Bolton Center.
