Event Terms & Conditions

In the highly unlikely case that an event is cancelled at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control the event will be re-scheduled for the next available date and all entry fees carried over to that date.

If the participant is unable to attend on the revised date, you will have three weeks to inform us in writing from when the change in date or cancellation is announced to receive a refund of your entry fee minus a 20% deduction to cover administration costs.

Competitor Withdrawal  Policy

We are sorry that you can no longer make our event, If you have to withdraw from any BustinSkin event, for what ever reason, then please read our Withdrawal Policy:

You are eligible for a full refund (minus a £10.00 admin fee and the online booking fee) within the 14 days *cooling off period from the day of booking.

*The cooling off period does not apply where a booking is made within 28 days of the event date.

Any withdrawals after the 14 days cooling off period will not be eligible for a refund under any circumstances. Due to the nature of sporting events we are unable to make exceptions for injuries, pregnancy etc.

Having said all that, life sometimes takes a different turn and therefore providing you give us enough notice, we are prepared to offer you a credit note towards a future event with us. This will be given to you in the form of an email that you can use to offset the cost of any other BustinSkin event.

Providing you follow these instructions, you will be issued with some sort of credit and we will guarantee you a place in next year’s race as long as you apply before the published closing date and pay the appropriate balance on top of your credit voucher to make up the full race fee.

Competitor Withdrawal

Once we have received your payment for any BustinSkin event all credits are discretionary.

Any withdrawals must be received in writing at the event office, Telephone messages are not acceptable.

Transfer of Entry

Under no circumstances are applicants permitted to transfer their entry to another person, event OR  another year.

Please note that the swapping of entries between applicants is strictly forbidden as it invalidates insurances undertaken by the Promoter to cover the event.
