Terms & Conditions

Introduction

We're a 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

You agree that you will follow all latest, relevant government guidelines regarding Covid-19 and will not attend the event if you are displaying any symptoms of the virus or have been told you must self-isolate.

You agree that you will follow any additional procedures at the event which have been implemented to ensure the events operate in a 'Covid-secure way' and which will be included in the pre-event information you are sent.

You agree to keep your 'Competitor Details' held on our entry system up-to-date with your Telephone Number an Emergency Contact Name and Telephone number

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 fit and well, physically capable of taking part in the Event and are solely responsible for your actions. Lakeland Trails is not responsible for any injury or illness that you may suffer because of your participation unless it is as a result of our negligence.

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

You are responsible for ensuring your address is up-to-date on our entry system so that your race number can be posted to you. Lakeland Trails is not responsible for any loss as a result of an incorrect address and reserves the right to charge for a replacement number if you arrive at Registration without one.

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

For all events, you have the option to cancel your entry.

For events excluding the Ultra, provided we are informed by email no less than 3 weeks before the event, a full refund will be made, subject to a £10 administration fee.

For the ‘Ultra’, provided we are informed by email no less than 16 weeks before the event, a full refund will be made. If you wish to cancel less than 16 weeks but more than 12 weeks before the event, you will be entitled to a refund of 75%. If you wish to cancel less than 12 weeks but more than 8 weeks before the event, you will be entitled to a refund of 50%. All refunds for Ultra entries will be subject to a £20 administration fee.

Cancellations requested less than 3 weeks before any 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 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 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 2 weeks before the event.

Deferral of individual entries to a different event is permitted provided we are informed no less that 3 weeks before the booked event. We are only able to permit one deferral per entry.

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 gender 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 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 2018. 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.
