  • Declare that you are an amateur as stated in UKA/EA rules and will abide by those rules. Hereby agree that the organisers or associates shall not be liable for any accident, injury, loss or damage as a consequence of your participation in the Race(s).
  • You agree that Running Services Limited (T/A TheRunBible.com) may publish personal information as part of the results of this event and may pass such information to the governing body or any affiliated organisation for the purposes of insurance, licences or for publishing results either for the event along or combined with or compared with other events.

  • All children attending the event to run or spectate must be supervised by an adult at all times.
  • Should the races have to be cancelled or postponed for reasons beyond the organisers control or in the event of bad weather making the course too dangerous to run - the organisers will offer entrants the choice of transferring their entry to another one of the race series or a refund. NOTE: It is the entrants responsibility to check the race is still on before travelling, the organisers will, post on Facebook, and email all entrants if there are any last minute changes - please check your email before travelling.
  • SAFETY: Please listen to the race briefing and marshalls instructions at all times. Having your earphones in or massive headphones on is not advised - not only because you look like a numpty, but mainly due to safety reasons - we need you to be able to hear the marshalls and things going on around you - remember you are running on a public right of way!
  • CHANGES TO YOUR ENTRY: As a general rule entries are non-transferable and non-refundable unless in truly exceptional circumstances (e.g. not that it's a bit windy or raining and you're a wuss!).
  • ETIQUETTE: We love runners, but only those who smile and are friendly.  As a general life rule - don't be a d*ck, don't do things like drop rubbish (please take it home with you) and be respectful to those around you. Listen to the marshalls at all times, they're awesome, but if you're a d*ck they're not so awesome (they get craggy, especially Mrs P...Wife of the RD...) and they have the right to DQ you.
