This is going to be buzzing.

Fancy a day at the races? The SPIN 1038 Student Race Day is back on Wednesday, April 5th and it's going to be massive.

It's one of the most highly anticipated student events in the country and we're buzzing about it, so here's everything you need to know.

What's happening?

The first race of the day kicks off at 1:55pm but you'll want to get in early to register for the SHEIN Best Dressed Competition.

The prizes for best dressed guy and girl are worth over €500 with vouchers and other exclusive prizes up for grabs.

Registration will take place in the marquee from 12pm – 3pm with the winners announced in the parade ring at around 4.30pm.

Student Race Day Video Booth

Have you seen those deadly-looking 360 degree videos on Instagram? Well the award-winning student accommodation partner, aparto, will have a video booth so you can film your own. Plus, they'll have some giveaways on the day.

If you're up for some good music vibes, check out the SPIN1038 DJ Jamie Maguire in the marquee during racing, and there'll be a DJ in Champions Bar throughout the day until close!

After the racing, you'll see one of Ireland's freshest voices as Soulé will take to the stage.

How do I get there?

The best way to get to Leopardstown is by public transport.

There'll be free shuttle buses before and after the racing from Sandyford Luas and Blackrock Dart Station.

What do I need?

First things first – you'll need a ticket to get in. They're on sale right now on the Leopardstown website – last few tickets remain so book now!

The event is strictly over 18's so an ID will be needed

Please note bag searching will be in place.
