Please refer to the corporate booking terms and conditions for corporate bookings).

3.3. If we cannot accept your Event registration. If we are unable to accept your Event registration, we will inform you of this and will not charge you.

It will help us if you can tell us the registration number whenever you contact us about your Event registration. Your registration number can be found on the email confirming your registration.

If you wish to make a change to the Event you have registered for, for example, updating which start you wish to participate in, please refer to your confirmation email, which will contain details about how to make the change. Alternatively, please visit the booking pages for the Event on our website. If you need to update your name, email address, date of birth, or upgrade any other part of your registration, please contact us at email@example.com. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price or timing of the Event, or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see clause 11 – Your rights to end the contract).
5. Our rights to make changes
5.1. Minor changes to the Event. We may change the Event:
5.1.1. to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and
5.1.2. to implement minor technical adjustments and improvements, for example to address a security threat, or for health and safety reasons. These changes will not affect your enjoyment of the Event.
5.2. More significant changes to the Events and these terms. In addition, as we informed you in the description of the Event on our website, we may make the following changes to these terms or the Event, but if we do so we will notify you and you may then contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any Event paid for but not completed:

6.5. Nothing in these terms allows you to resell, offer for resale at a premium, or use in any form of commercial or business activity your registration to the Event unless expressly authorised by us. These are grounds for cancellation by us.
7. The Event
7.1. Race day information. During the registration process we will let you know when the Event will be taking place. In the run-up to the Event we will send your race day information to the email address you provide us with when you register for the Event. The race day information will contain, without limitation, a full itinerary, the Event number, your wave start time, and rules and instructions, including safety instructions, for the Event.
7.3. If you do not receive your race day information. Where you have registered for an Event more than two weeks in advance, please allow up to two weeks prior to the Event date to receive your race day information. If after such time you have still not received your race day information, please visit the booking pages for the Event on our website to request that your race day information be resent. Alternatively, you can get in touch with us at 01277 366301 or firstname.lastname@example.org and we shall arrange for your race day information to be resent to you ahead of the Event.
7.4. We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If the Event is delayed by, or must be cancelled due to circumstances outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by such circumstances, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract or arrange to take part in an equivalent Event. Please note that no refund will be available if the Event is delayed by, or must be cancelled due to circumstances outside our control. If you wish to participate in an alternative Event, an additional registration fee will be payable.
7.5. What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We will need certain information from you so that we can be sure to maximise your enjoyment of the Event, for example, name, address, age, t-shirt size, sex. These details will be requested during the registration process on our website. If you do not give us this information at the point of registration, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 13.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for complications on the day of the Event if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it. If any of these details change between Event registration and the Event, for example, if you change email address, you are responsible for contacting us to provide updated details.
8. Your safety at the Event

If the child’s parent or legal guardian objects to the child’s participation in the Event at any point the child will not be entitled to participate in the Event.

15. Price and payment
15.1. Where to find the price for the Event. The price of the Event (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the registration pages when you register. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Event advised to you is correct. However please see clause 15.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Event you register for.

15.3. What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Events may be incorrectly priced. Where the Event’s correct price at your registration date is less than our stated price at your registration date, we will refund the difference. If the Event’s correct price at your registration date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions. If we accept and process your Event registration where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract and refund you any sums you have paid.
16. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you
16.1. We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
16.2. We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights in relation to the Event.
17. How we may use your personal information
18. Intellectual Property Rights

18.3. Retention of our intellectual property. Participation in the Event does not confer any intellectual property rights (by implication or otherwise) on you to use, alter, copy or otherwise deal with any of the symbols, trademarks, logos and/or intellectual property of the Event.
19. Other important terms
19.1. We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation.
19.2. You need to comply with clause 6 in order to transfer you registration to someone else.
19.3. Nobody else has any rights under this contract. Save where a team entry to an Event has been made, this contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
19.4. If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
19.5. Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.
19.6. Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Event in the English courts. If you live in Scotland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Event in either the Scottish or the English courts. If you live in Northern Ireland you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the Event in either the Northern Irish or the English courts.
