Entry to any event organised directly by VO2 Max Racing Events is subject to the following terms and conditions:
Organising an event requires a considerable amount of forward planning, time, risk and expense. Approximately 9 - 12 months prior to our events taking place, work begins and costs are incurred. These include administrative, insurance, advertising, marketing, equipment, website and staff costs. As an event draws nearer, we continue to incur costs, many in relation to the number of entrants in the event. Whilst we are investing into the cost of staging our events, there is no guarantee of their success, making financial planning an integral part of event management and promotion. For this reason our ‘Terms and Conditions’ are here to ensure we are able to provide athletes with continued safe and enjoyable events.
By entering a VO2 Max Racing Events event, applicants agree to abide by these terms and conditions as listed below. This includes all individual members and members of a relay team.
All entrants agree to provide accurate information in their event application to allow entries to be processed properly.
All applicants are aware that the nature of the event is physically demanding and that by entering the event they are confirming that they are capable of completing the event and that the organisers will not be held responsible for any injury or illness as a result of their participation.
The entrant waives and discharges from any and all liability for death, disability, personal injury, property damage, property theft and all other foreseeable risks, claims or actions of any kind (including negligence) whatever and however occurring which may arise, at any time, from or in connection with, directly or indirectly, their participation in the Event, the following persons or entities: The Event Organisers, Event officials and personnel, land managers and/or owners, event sponsors, volunteers, and all of their respective officers, directors, employees, independent contractors, representatives, agents and volunteers.
An acceptance email will be sent confirming your entry to the event if you have entered online. A list of entries will be posted on event website page prior to the event. It is the entrant’s responsibility to inform the event entry website if any of these details are incorrect so they can be corrected prior to the event taking place. VO2 Max Racing Events cannot guarantee that any changes can be made if they are received after the event closing date.
By entering a VO2 Max Racing Events event, you acknowledge that you do so at your own risk, and certify that you are fit and confident of completing the event.
With most events (sports, cinema, theatre, concerts, etc), if after paying for them you have to withdraw, you will not receive a refund, regardless of the reason (injury, pregnancy, holiday, business / work, etc). However, if you do need to withdraw from any of our events and provided we get enough notice, we are prepared to give you an element of your entry fee back, providing you follow our withdrawals policy:
No competitor email will be sent to competitors who have withdrawn from an event or who do not register during the allocated time periods for their entered event.
You must notify VO2 Max Racing Events in writing of your intention to withdraw; please include your order number and details of the event you wish to withdraw from. The date of your withdrawal request will be considered as the postmarked date on your letter. Withdrawal requests should be sent to:
VO2 Max Racing Events (Withdrawals)
35 Chiltern Close
Your refund will be made to the card you paid with via the online entry system.
Refunds do not include any online processing fee.
We will endeavour to process your refund as soon as possible, but we cannot guarantee that this will be before the event you are withdrawing from.
Under no circumstances are applicants permitted to transfer their entry to either another event, or to another individual.
All information relating to all of our events will be published on www.vo2maxracingevents.co.uk any advance changes / alterations to the course or event will also be published on the website and Facebook, as will event start times. Event information will be sent out to all competitors prior to the event. It is the responsibility of all competitors to ensure they are aware of all information relating to their event.
Any individual who has won a prize at a VO2 Max Racing Events event must either:
If the winner of a prize does not do one of the above, then that individual will forego the right to the prize and the prize will not be awarded.
Once we have received an online event entry application, any subsequent change to individual affiliation status will not result in any refund of the difference between the non-affiliation and affiliation entrance fee.
The promoters maintain the right to use images and photographs taken by their contracted photographers and employees at the event without informing of or recompense to event participants. These images can be used for promotional purposes as undertaken by the promoters and their partners, which will cover a range of possible uses including advertising, press and media, printed information items, editorial coverage and any other promotion directly related to the promoters or their sponsors.
VO2 Max Racing Events maintain the right to refuse or revoke entry to any applicant, where they believe that accepting the entry could prejudice the event, VO2 Max Racing Events, VO2 Max Racing Events sponsors, associates or staff. This right of refusal extends to include applications where acceptance is considered by the promoters to be likely to infringe upon the enjoyment of any persons connected with the event, including staff, marshals, volunteers & other competitors.
We endeavour to make sure we provide you with an event that you have entered. Circumstances may be such that we are unable to deliver an event in the format that was expected / advertised. VO2 Max Racing Events have the right to change any event for the reason of safety without prior notice. In such circumstances competitors will not be eligible for any refunds, whether full or partial, or any other financial recompense.
