Cancellation & Refund Policy for Races

The moment you enter our race we start to incur administration costs and banking charges, 

simply in processing your entry and payment. We also incur further charges in administering 

cancellations and processing refund payments 

Entry fees are non-refundable, including the cancellation of the event due to circumstances 

outside the organisers control. 

Refunds will not be payable if we are forced to cancel, or in any way change the event due to war, 

threat of war, riot, civil strife, industrial dispute, terrorist activity, natural or nuclear disaster, fire or 

adverse weather conditions or other circumstances amounting to force majeure. 

In the unlikely event of the cancellation/postponement of sporting events for whatever reason, 

Purple Patch Running Ltd cannot be held responsible in any way for any monetary loss, 

inconvenience or any other circumstances outside of our control, including non-refundable events 

fees. Your entry fee is invested in the cost of staging the event, and the main costs to 

contractors, suppliers, administration etc are already committed well before race day 

No changes can be made to race entries after 2 weeks before race day 

Should you be unable to participate due to injury or illness, we cannot refund or defer your 

entry to another race or to the following year's event. However, we will allow you to 

transfer your number to another runner PROVIDED we receive email notification and the 

new runner's details no less than three weeks before race day. Notification must be made 

by email, with a follow-up telephone call if no response is received within 4 days. Please 

note that you are NOT ALLOWED to transfer your number to another runner without 

confirmation from the Race Organisers. Running in someone else's race number can have 

very serious consequences if the runner suffers a medical emergency. The accuracy of the 

race results is also affected when runners are placed in the wrong age and sex category. 

Any runner who competes in another person's race number will be disqualified
