The Festival of Racing returned to Horwich this weekend for the 17th year.

Competitors took part in everything from unicycling and sprint orienteering to more traditional events like cycling and running.

Bolton West MP Chris Green who attended the festival, said: " It's fantastic to see these athletes who put so much effort in, make such wonderful use of our beautiful town."

Photographers Nigel Taggart and Phil Taylor were in Horwich capturing all the action from this unique sporting event and we have gathered their brilliant images together here.
