Lakeland Trails - Terms & Conditions

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 and safely for everyone.

Participation

Our Events take place on well-marked tracks and paths which include rough terrain and climbs, and which can be subject to harsh weather conditions.

You agree that you are physically capable of taking part in the Event and you agree to be solely responsible for your actions. Lakeland Trails is not responsible for any injury or illness that you may suffer because of your participation.

Our Events take place on public rights of way and rely on the support of locals and volunteers for their success. You agree you will be polite and courteous at all times, and follow instructions given by marshals or crew.

Any competitor found to be behaving in an inappropriate way will be disqualified and may be prevented from entering future Lakeland Trails events.

Race Entry

The event entry fee is individual to you, non-refundable and non-transferrable except at our discretion in the limited circumstances outlined below.

Refunds & Cancellations

You have the option to cancel your entry, providing we are informed by e-mail no less than 8 weeks before the event. All refunds will be subject to a £10 administration fee. Agreed refunds processed within 3 months of booking will be refunded by the original payment method. Outside of this period, refunds will be made via PayPal account only. Duplicate entries made in genuine error will be refunded in full.

Cancellations requested less than 8 weeks before the event will not be permitted.

Race Transfers

Transfer of individual entries between different events is permitted, subject to availability, providing we are informed by e-mail no less than 4 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 PayPal 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 4 weeks before the event.

Transfer of individual entries to a different competitor is permitted providing we are informed no less than 4 weeks before the event.

Transfers requested less than 4 weeks before the event will not be permitted.

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 for use 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 not be 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.

Data Protection

Any personal information you give to us will be processed in accordance with the UK Data Protection Act 1998. Lakeland Trails will only use and share your information to process entries into our Events, ensuring your safety during the Event and keeping you informed by email. Your information will not be shared with third parties for any other reasons.

By registering for an Event, you confirm that you have read and agree to these Terms and Conditions.
