Below are some of the commitments we The Drop have made to ensure barriers to female participation in our events are removed. If you require any further information on the below, or feel we have missed anything, please email hello@Runable.co.uk
- Imagery/Content: Our website is dedicated to promoting inclusivity. From the homepage, through the race pages, to the results; we will always dedicate as much space and resource to the each race - women, men and non-binary. Our aim is always to feature at least as many pictures of women, as well as People of Colour and an age spread of runners in every post race page and report.
Logos: you will notice many of our logos have changed over the past few weeks to reflect the diversity of participation at our events. (We aim to have all replaced by the end of July.)
- Race description and Language: We have and will never use unnecessary terminology to make races appear artificially more difficult and as such raise a barrier to inclusion. 
- Fair Deferral/Refund policies for pregnancy and postpartum: Every RunAble race has an explicit 100% refund policy for pregnancy and postpartum. Women should feel comfortable entering our events whilst planning pregnancy, in the knowledge that they won't be disadvantaged if they do receive the good news before the race. 
- Toilets: Everywhere we can have a toilet we have. Where available, separate woman’s and mens facilities will be signposted. 
- Feminine Hygiene: You will find a small selection of products at every event. These are stored with aid station kit and defibrillator at the registration/finish desk.
- Anonymity: Any request to anonymise results, start list and/or names on trackers will be honoured.
- Mementos: all our event mementos are gender neutral.
- Breastfeeding/Expressing: We deal with any breastfeeding request, making special provision, wherever required. 
- Unacceptable Behaviour: We will treat any report of unacceptable behaviour or harassment with utmost severity, take swift action and ensure that there is an appropriate outcome/penalty for it.
- Cut offs: Our cut offs for RunAble events are in place to allow the maximum time to finish the event. Cut offs are based around the usual finish times for previous RunAble events and as such are generous. Unlike many events out there, we are not super strict on cut offs but would ask that if you feel you would need more time please contact us and we will make the event cut offs work for you. We can and will have walkers finish our events but we are primarily for runners.
We would love to hear from you on anything that the above policy raises, or for further clarification please email hello@runable.co.uk
