Lakeland Trails Cancellation, Transfers & Refund Policy

Introduction

We're a very small team here at Lakeland Trails and the following terms and conditions are based specifically on the management plans we have in place to make our events run smoothly for everyone involved. Memento production, race number printing and start list publication are all conducted 3 weeks before the event takes place. Consequently, changes requested after this time cannot be made.

Race Transfers

Transfer of individual entries between different events is permitted, subject to availability, providing we are informed by e-mail no less than 3 weeks before the event you wish to transfer from. When transferring to a higher value race, (e.g. the Marathon) the difference in cost is payable by cheque in advance of the event.

Transfer of individual entries between events on the same date (e.g. from the Race to the Challenge) is permitted, subject to availability, providing we are informed by e-mail no less than 3 weeks before the event. Transfers requested less than 3 weeks before the event will not be permitted.

Refunds & Cancellations

You have the option to cancel your entry, providing we are informed by e-mail no less than 4 weeks before the event. This will be paid by cheque and be subject to a £10 administration fee deductible from your refund. Duplicate entries made in genuine error will be refunded in full. Cancellations requested less than 4 weeks before the event will not be permitted.

Important

Please note, unless we are informed in line with the above terms and conditions, your entry and number is individual to you and is non-transferable and non-refundable. Competitors using someone else's number can have serious consequences in the event of a medical emergency. The accuracy of the race results is also affected when competitors are placed in the wrong event, age or sex category. Any competitor using someone else's number will be disqualified.

Third Party Events

For safety and insurance reasons, we do not work with third party events, and will not accept entries used in third party events (such as utilising our Marathon event as a stage for a third party Triathlon event). We exercise our right to refuse entries on this basis, and should you make an entry for a third party event, you will will not listed on our start list and will not be refunded your entry fee for that event.

Race Alteration & Cancellation

We reserve the right to refuse or cancel entry applications, or alter the date of the event, the course route or the distance. Only a partial refund will be given if the event is forced to be cancelled or postponed due to circumstances beyond our control, e.g. by order of the Government or landowners due to Foot and Mouth disease.
