Following on from the Notification received TODAY from Bolton Council that IRONMAN 70.3 will close almost all the roads around the showground from 7:30am and cause major disruption to access to our showground and makes it impossible for the show to run on the Sunday.
The committee has held an emergency meeting to discuss options. We have floated many ideas, some of which we also discussed on social media, but in the end, we have decided that the Show on Sunday will be Cancelled.
We understand that this will disappoint many people, and we are sorry, but we have no control over the road closures and added to the fact that NWC has moved forward into our weekend it has made it even harder to please everyone and, in some cases, find replacement judges to allow us to run.
So it is with regret that we are informing all competitors that the show on SUNDAY 26th SEPTEMBER is CANCELLED and will NOT be rescheduled.
Dressage which is scheduled for Saturday 25th September will continue to run as planned.
STARS qualifications will be worked out shortly from the published points and we will be in touch with those that have qualified.
Again, we are sorry, but this was totally out of our hands.
