Refunds or deferrals: We operate a 14-day cooling off period. If you cancel your entry you will receive a refund of the Entry Fee minus a £5 service fee. To apply for a refund, you must email us within 14 days of payment of the entry fee. This rule does not apply within the 14 days prior to the event where no refunds can be given at all.

Your entry fee is non-refundable (after the 14-day cooling off period) unless we have to postpone or cancel the event due the Covid-19 pandemic, in this case you will be offered a deferment to any of our future events or a full refund, minus the booking fee.

Race Timing

- The event is timed with electronic timing chips using the Sport Ident timing system.
- Your lap is counted and timed every time you pass through the start/finish line area and 'dib' your race timing chip in a receiver.
- This timing chip will be on a lanyard so you can carry it around your neck
- Team members will pass this timing chip on like a relay baton to the next team member at the transition area at the start/finish line
- If a solo runner or a whole team decide to take a rest, i.e no one running on the course, you can 'dib out' at the transition area to pause the lap time. When you are ready to start your next lap again you can 'dib in' at the transition area to resume the lap time
- Real time result updates will streamed live throughout the event and final results will be emailed to all participants. Extreme bragging rights will also be availible when we upload results onto social media for shortly after the event.
