Our events are held on a variety of surfaces and all competitors enter at their own risk. While medical assistance is provided for the duration of the event no liability will be accepted by either Pennington Events Limited or individual race organisers for any injury incurred by entering this race.

It is a condition of entry that all competitors agree to the terms and conditions as set out on the race website.
A race requires physical effort and exertion. We recommend that you fully prepare and train for our events. If you have a medical condition it must be detailed on the reverse of your race number. We strongly advise you seek medical advice before participating in this event and you disclose to those medical advisors the nature of this event.
Health and safety
No entries are permissible from participants on bikes, roller skates, with pushchairs, dogs or any kind of mechanical aid. Parts of our routes may not be accessible for wheelchair users. As the event is not held on roads with traffic, headphones are permitted. However, we ask that competitors only use one ear piece so they can hear the instructions from marshals.
In the event that you suffer illness or injury during the event, you are obliged to report it to the nearest marshal.
In the event of the event(s) being cancelled monies are non-refundable. However the Race Director will make every attempt to provide an alternative race date.
