The entry fee is as detailed on the online entry system on the website and will be the fee applicable at the date of submission of the entry application.

The Event is run under ARC/ UKA Rules and Regulations, the minimum age for entry is 17 on the 31st March 2019.
Participants enter the Event entirely at their own risk: The Organiser shall not be liable for any injury or loss occurring as a result of participation in the Event (including, without limitation, any losses resulting from the Organiser’s negligence), provided that nothing in these terms and conditions shall exclude or limit the Organiser’s liability for death or personal injury resulting from the Organiser’s negligence or for any other type of liability that cannot be excluded or limited by law.
It is recommended that the Participant prepares and trains for the Event; it is not a fun run. The Participant is advised to consult with a medical professional prior to entering into the Event if they have not exercised for some time. If the Participant has a medical condition it must be detailed at the time of entry and on the reverse of the race number worn on race day.
The Participant agrees that, as far as they are aware, they are physically able to compete in the Event and, to the extent that it may be necessary they have sought and relied upon any medical advice before the date of the Event. Should any medical or physical condition arise prior to the Event which is likely to affect their ability to compete in the Event, the Participant should withdraw from the Event.
The Participant consents to any medical treatment being administered during the Event by official medically-qualified personnel. The Organiser may prevent the Participant from taking part in the Event (either at the start or during the Event) if the Organiser, Marshal or medical representative considers that the Participant should not participate in the Event for health and/or medical reasons.
Transfers and Withdrawal Policy
From the moment we begin to organise and event we start to incur costs. Your entry fee is invested in the cost of staffing the event – everything from barrier to toilets, printing to safety pins, from race numbers and road closures. Organising any event requires a considerable amount of forward planning, risk and expense. Our Withdrawals Policy reflects this and is as follows:
Notification of withdrawal from an Immortal Sport Event must be made in writing (email is fine, social media is not):
• 8 weeks (61 days) or more prior to the Event = 50% refund or deferral to next year’s Event
• 4 weeks to 8 weeks (30-60 days) prior to the Event = 20% refund or deferral to next year’s Event
• Less than 4 weeks prior to the Event = No refund or deferral permitted
Number transfers are only permitted during the transfer window, which start 8 weeks before race day and lasts for a period of 4 weeks. Transfers must be managed by the original entrant via the online entry providers website. No responsibility for incorrect transferred data is accepted by Immortal Sport Ltd
Due to the nature of Sporting Events we are unable to make exceptions for injuries of any kind, or pregnancy.
Race Entry and Race Packs
Entries cannot be assigned, transferred, sold or gifted to any third party outside the transfer window, 1st February 2019 00:01 – 28th February 2019 23:59. All participants will be notified by email of the transfer window opening and closing dates during the week before opening of the transfer window.
Any assignment, transfer or sale of a race number outside the prescribed window of transfer may result in delay and/or difficulty in the event of an emergency on race day.
Where a transfer takes place the new runner will receive a t-shirt (if applicable) the size as requested by the original runner i.e. t-shirt sizes are not transferable.
A race pack will be posted to the Participant’s address provided upon completion of the online entry form approximately 14 days before the race. Any entries received later that 14 days before the event will be required to collect race numbers on the day of the event. Details of where and when will be provided on the event website.
The Organiser accepts no responsibility for the non-delivery of race packs. If the Participant does not receive their race pack prior to the Event it is their responsibility to contact the Organiser before the race day whereupon arrangements can be made regarding the issue of another race pack for collection on the date of the Event.
The Organiser shall be entitled to charge the Participant a fee for replacement packs in respect of its reasonable administration costs.
The Participant should update any change of address or contact details via their online entry profile. Failure of a Participant to update their details by 1st March 2019 00:00 will result in the Participant’s race pack being dispatched to the wrong address and a replacement pack will only be available for collection on the day of the Event. A charge may be levied at the Organiser’s discretion in respect of its reasonable administration costs incurred in issuing a replacement pack
Participants who complete the Event will receive a race memento. Where the memento is a t-shirt the Organiser will endeavour to provide a t-shirt in the size as requested via the online process, but this is not contractual and cannot be guaranteed.
