The 175th edition of the Grand National was marked by successive attempts by animal rights activists to prevent the race from taking place, demonstrating peacefully hours before the event and, later and minutes before the start time of the race, abruptly breaking the fences and jump on the dance floor naked or dressed in pink t-shirts. The attempted invasion, coordinated, took place in different areas of the route. Dozens of the protesters were arrested by Merseyside Police. These incidents caused the event to start with a delay of 20 minutes.
