Worksop Half Marathon and Fun Run 2017 Refunds and Cancellation Policy


No refund can be given if the race has to be cancelled or if you are no longer able to take part.  Please understand that your entry fee is invested in the cost of staging the event, including for timing systems, sanitation, traffic management, administration etc.  

Deferred Entry:

In fairness to runners who can no longer compete for whatever reason, it is our policy to offer ‘Deferred Entry’ into the following year's Worksop Half Marathon or Fun Run to applicants who cancel their entry on or before 2nd October 2017. To qualify for Deferred Entry into the 2018 Worksop Half Marathon or Fun Run, you must notify us of your intention to cancel your entry either via email at: or via the Contact Form found here: Contact Us
Please Note:  Entrants who have already deferred from the previous year are not permitted to defer again.  They can, however, transfer their entry to another runner.  Please see the Entry Transfers information below.

Entry Transfers:

If you are no longer able to take part, you may transfer your number to another runner.  In order to complete the transfer you must forward via email your original entry confirmation OR payment confirmation as a consent to the transfer.  We will also need the contact details of the person taking your place so that we can gather the appropriate information.  Please note that the deadline for transfers is 12pm on 25th October 2017.  We are unable to process transfers after this deadline and there will be no transfers on the day.

Duplicate Entries: 

Duplicate entries made in genuine error will be refunded in full.

Important Notes:

Running in someone else's race number can have very serious consequences if the runner suffers a medical emergency – there have been cases in other parts of the country where event organisers and the emergency services have been unable to identify or contact families of runners who have suffered potentially life-threatening conditions whilst using someone else's race number. The accuracy of the race results is also affected when runners are placed in the wrong age and sex category. 
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel applications, including duplicate applications, or to alter the date of the event, the course route or distance. 
Runners are not permitted to take part in the event without an official race number.
