Refund and Cancellation Policy

All competition needs rules.

When you enter you agree to abide by these rules and our terms and conditions.

We urge you to read these carefully, before you enter, in order to avoid any misunderstanding at a later stage.

At Severn Bridge 10k we pride ourselves on being understanding event organisers. We are runners ourselves.

If you enter and then find at a later date you can't take part we appreciate that you won't want to waste your entry fee. Refunds are  out of the question and no commercial race organisers offers them, due to committed expenditure made, based on the numbers entered - eg. we buy sufficient goody bags/medals/tee shirts/race numbers and chips etc and commit to employ or hire personnel and equipment on your behalf ).  

For similar reasons outlined above with regard to refunds, we can't offer deferrals to our other events or the event next year.

However, unlike many event organisers, we do allow transfers. This means that you can get another person to run in your place as long as you change the details of your original entry to the new runner. You need to do this yourself by logging in to the on-line provider as you did when you first entered (Fabian4). There needs to be a deadline for transfers though, as we need to get all the bib numbers and chips organised. The deadline for on-line changes is 18th  August. 

If you run for a club and are affiliated to UKA (or some other affiliated body) , then some of your club fees go towards providing you insurance cover to run races. Therefore when you enter our races, if you are an affiliated member, you can often pay £2 less. This is an insurance discount, as you have already paid this fee.  Being an affiliated club member will save you money over the course of the year - the more races you run the more you save!

However the club you state on application must be an actual registered club which is affiliated to UKA, WA or ARC and you must yourself be an affiliated club member to get the discount. If you simply make up a name or the club you belong to is not affiliated to UKA, WA or ARC or you yourself are not an affiliated member then you are defrauding the organisers by choosing not to pay for the insurance cover required by law.  

If you can no longer run the race and don't organise a transfer it is somewhat irresponsible if you allow another runner to run with your bib/chip number. There are several reasons why:

Please do not run on someone else's number. You are reminded that under ARC/UKA rules, any runner who knowingly competes with another person's race number that has not been officially transferred to them will be disqualified, and we reserve the right to inform your club/affiliated body.

We need to implement a cut-off time for both distances. Before you enter make sure that you are capable of running the distance in under the time stated. We'd prefer not to have cut off times, however, the race permission gained from the highways authorities/local council is subject to this cut-off time. Quite simply, if we didn't implement it, the race wouldn't exist. A cut off time is also important for the welfare of our volunteers who help run the event. Marshaling, timing, serving cakes/teas etc is a demanding and tiring job and we can only expect them to be in their post for a reasonable length of time.

If you continue running after the cut-off time, you do so at your own risk and are no longer part of the event. There may be no marshals in place to direct you, closed roads may open, the results team may have left the finish area and equipment at the HQ could be being packed away.
