ENTRY FEE REFUNDS/EXCHANGES
- Entry Fees: We start incurring costs early in the event organisation process including an online entry administration fee. If your entry is accepted, the following rules apply:
- Once your race entry is accepted we are unable to make refunds.
- Up to 28/02/19 numbers can be transferred to a substitute runner online by the person who made the original booking via their account with FR Systems (see original email from your entry acceptance). An affiliated runner’s place may only be transferred to another affiliated runner. UKA affiliation will be verified during the online entry process. Numbers are sent out from 01/03/19.
- From 01/03/19 to 12/03/19 online number transfers can be made but the runner number will not be re-issued and it is the responsibility of the original runner to update the online entry held by FR Systems (see original email from entry acceptance) and pass their race number to the new runner. Note: the number will show the name of the original runner – no new number will be issued – you can cover the original name if you wish to.
- Once numbers are issued they cannot be swapped between sexes as female numbers begin with an F.
- Unauthorised number swaps may result in disqualification.
- Cancellation: We reserve the right to cancel, delay or postpone the event due to unforeseen or unavoidable circumstances outside of our control e.g. severe weather making it unsafe to hold the event. In such a case we will endeavour to inform participants as quickly as possible. If this decision is made, no refund of entry fee will be made as most of the costs are incurred before the race and are not refundable. In the unlikely event of the cancellation/postponement for whatever reason, the Event Organisers cannot be held responsible in any way for any monetary loss, inconvenience or any other circumstances outside of our control, including non-refundable events fees.
USING HEADPHONES WHILST RUNNING
The use of personal stereos, iPods, phones or other music devises is not allowed under UKA rule 240 S5 – the wearing of headphones, or similar devices, (other than those medically prescribed), is not permitted in races on any single carriageway road that is not wholly closed to traffic. There are some sections on the Fleet Half course which do have traffic coming in the opposite direction to runners and is therefore not wholly closed.
- The wearing of such equipment may prevent you from hearing instructions from marshals and other event staff as well as the hearing of sirens/horns from emergency services and other vehicles. By wearing such devices you are putting yourself and those around you at risk.
- Rule 240 S5 also states if the athlete wears conductive headphones, these are acceptable as these work by conducting sound through bones and do not sit or block the ears.
- The Event Organisers will have no responsibility should this rule be ignored. Please do not risk our ability to get a future license for this event by ignoring this rule.
- Runners seen to be wearing headphones may be disqualified but the Event Organisers
- Only juniors aged 8 to 16 can take part in the Junior Mini Mile Fun Run – parents can run with their children if they wish but only the junior runner will receive the t-shirt and medal.
- The Junior Fun Runners should be capable of running the distance and must follow all instructions given to them on the day.
- The Junior Fun Run will be run over part of the half marathon course on closed roads and there will be escort runners on the route.
Participants accept that endurance running should only be undertaken by persons who have undertaken a training regime. It is your responsibility to make sure you are medically fit and capable of running a half marathon distance and to seek appropriate medical advice prior to participation. Participation in the event is entirely at your own risk and that by entering, participants acknowledge that the Event Organisers, Officials or Marshals shall not be liable for death, injury, loss or damage arising from participation in the event save to the extent that is caused by our negligence.
