The Pertemps Final is a Listed National Hunt hurdle race in Great Britain which is open to horses aged five years or older. It is run on the New Course at Cheltenham over a distance of about 3 miles (4,828 metres), and during its running there are twelve hurdles to be jumped. It is a handicap race, and it is scheduled to take place each year during the Cheltenham Festival in March.
The event was established in 1974, when it was introduced as a replacement for a previous race at the Festival, the George Duller Handicap Hurdle. It was originally sponsored by Coral, and for much of its early history it was titled the Coral Golden Hurdle Final. It has had various different sponsors since 1993, and the latest of these, Pertemps, began supporting the race in 2002.
The Pertemps Final is served by eight qualifier races which take place during the preceding five months. In the 2009–10 season these were held at Cheltenham (October), Kempton Park (November), Auteuil (November), Newbury (November), Sandown Park (December), Wincanton (December), Leopardstown (January), and Haydock Park (February).
