Terms & Conditions
1 Acceptance of these terms and conditions
By entering the race you accept these terms and conditions. If you complete the race entry on behalf of another, you accept these terms and conditions on their behalf.
All Rural Running events are promoted by Rural Limited ("we" or "us" which expression includes our employees, race officials, authorised agents, sub-contractors, marshals or volunteers).
3 Application of UKA Rules
UKA rules will only be applied when a UKA licence has been applied for, and subsequently granted. Rural Running Limited have a comprehensive Public Liability Insurance Policy covering all their events and do not run under UKA licences unless otherwise stated.
You participate entirely at your own risk. Except only for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence we accept no responsibility whatsoever for any injury, illness, loss or damage to property and possessions, action, claim, economic loss, cost or expense howsoever caused which may arise in consequence of your participation in the race.
5 Medical conditions / medication(s)
If you have any health concerns or are uncertain whether you are fit to run, please contact your GP before you enter. If you have medical conditions that may affect you during the race or are taking any medication(s) you are required to indicate these on the back of your race number, so that it is evident in the event that you need medical attention during the race.
6 Registration closing
Unless otherwise stated on the company website or the event Facebook page, the final closing date for acceptance of entries will be as published.
7 Maximum time to complete race
Generally, there are NO cut off times during our events. However, if there are road closures on the course, and the removal of said closures presents a danger to either the participants or marshals, the route may be altered or participants may be instructed to run on different parts of the route.
8 Minimum age requirement
Age limited for our events will be published in advance and on the entry pages for the individual races. Where the race is being run under a UKA licence, UKA age restrictions will apply.
If an event is cancelled due to reasons beyond the organisers control, including weather or the effects of recent weather events, we regret that no entry fees can be refunded, credited or deferred to future events. This is due to the amount of admin, organisation and cost that goes into each event prior to the actual event itself.
The current situation regarding the COVID-19 is that people are ADVISED against any mass gatherings or LARGE sporting events. If it becomes the case that any of our events need to be cancelled because of this, we will do what we can to enable the events to take place in smaller numbers, but if in the end the events need to be cancelled, all entrants will be entered into the reorganised races whenever they might be. No refunds will be possible but deferrals and transfers will be allowed.
However, every effort will be made to
reschedule the event but this cannot be guaranteed.
10 Race numbers
You will be provided with a race number which you must conspicuously wear on your front during the race. You will not be permitted to run in the race without the appropriate race number. Anybody found running in the wrong race number may be disqualified and may be refused entry into any future Rural Running events. Race numbers must be worn as issued not be altered, cut, folded or otherwise concealed or mutilated in any way. It is a condition of entry that all runners must complete the contact details and medical information (if applicable) on the reverse of the race number.

12 Collection of race numbers and timing chips

If seen wearing such equipment, you may be asked to remove it by a race official. Crossing the finish line wearing ear phones may result in disqualification.

23 Course Measurement
All our races are run on measured courses. We measure the course using a 1m/rev measuring wheel. We know that this may result in runners using GPS devices recording distances different to that published.
On selected races, we use a course measurer, who will be a member of the UK Association of Course Measurers. They accurately measure the course using a calibrated counter mounted on a bicycle.
The distance published in the race details is the distance measured and not the distance recorded by a GPS device.
