Event Newsflash - 10/03/2016

Very regrettably, due to the recent adverse weather, all competition at Tweseldown (1) from Friday 11th to Sunday 13th March has been abandoned.

Please see below a statement from the Organiser, Rachael Faulkner:-

It is with great regret to inform everyone that we have taken the very difficult decision to abandon the whole competition. After an accumulation of rain over the last few weeks and unprecedented rainfall on Tuesday and Wednesday night we have been left with large parts of the cross country under water. We have explored numerous alternate routes for the competitors and emergency services but are not satisfied that we can go ahead safely. We had hoped to make decisions on a day by day basis but after another night of persistent rain the BE officials all agree that the ground will not recover in time. I am so upset for the whole team who have worked tirelessly to prepare for this week and also the competitors who have supported Tweseldown. Everyone will be refunded, also withdrawals. See rule 4.12
