I understand that the Run is non-competitive and that no racing is allowed.

I also understand that I should take every precaution to prevent serious injury and I agree to wear a protective active wear at all times during my participation in the Run.

 

Entry


I will not under any circumstances give my or my child’s race number to anyone else. Amongst other potential problems, doing so may cause problems of identification for the Run medical services (St John’s Ambulance) in the case of any accident or injury. Any attempt to do so will result in immediate disqualification of the individual(s) concerned and ejection from the event.
Family Running Festival and West Chiltington Community School reserves the right to reject any entry, and further reserves the right to change the details of the above-referenced events without prior notice. I understand that numbers are non-transferable.
 

Race Ejection


I understand that Family Running Festival and West Chiltington Community School reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to refuse to allow anyone to participate in the Run either at the start or to continue participation at any point along the route of the Run, should he or she be deemed to behave inappropriately or give cause for concern that his or her continued participation may cause offence or injury to themselves, any spectators or other competitors. Failure to comply with any instruction from security staff, teachers and marshals will result in ejection from the Run.

 

Cancellation of the Run


Family Running Festival and West Chiltington Community School reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to postpone, cancel, or modify the Run due to unforeseen or unavoidable circumstances out of our reasonable control. In such cases, we will endeavour to inform participants as quickly as possible.
