CANCELLED – North Star Trailride
July 30, 2022 - July 31, 2022
***CANCELLATION NOTICE 2022***
The 2022 North Star Trail Ride has been CANCELLED due to ongoing wet conditions.
Our volunteers had been pushing ahead with the track marking despite another extremely wet season but each time it rains the black soil is now taking too long to dry out. Track marking attempts after this weekends weather have proven that it will not be possible to have the track SAFELY marked in time for this years event. We always only have a short window to put up markers because the ones that are put up to early are demolished by the wildlife. Also considering that more rain is forecast for July there is a very high chance the track will remain, at the very least, inaccessible to vehicles for recovery and ambulance so we have had to make the tough decision to CANCEL the ride.
We understand how disappointing this news will be. Our volunteers have spent much of the year organising the ride and many weeks marking the track to give the ride every chance of going ahead (not to mention while under increasing pressure from covid, flu and everything else at the moment) so we too are disappointed.
It is a difficult call to make but unfortunately the weather has had the final say.
The North Star Trailride returns from a 2 year hiatus, book it in the calendar more details to follow, keep an eye on Facebook and instagram.
