TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Before registering, please read the following terms and conditions. By clicking the below sign up link, you are agreeing to abide by the following terms and conditions:
The copyright and all other intellectual property rights in the material contained in the 100k London to Brighton 24 Hour Walk website belong to Blind Veterans UK with all rights reserved.
The Terms and Conditions detailed below apply to all entrants participating in the Blind Veterans UK 100k Challenge (the Event) organised and operated by Discover Adventure (the Organisers). Completion of an entry form or purchase of an entry by every participant acknowledges acceptance of these Terms and Conditions by the participant.
1. A. Individual entry – every person registering for this event agrees to pay a £99 non-refundable entry fee. They also pledge to raise a minimum of £250 sponsorship which is due to be paid to the charity by one month after the event, by 22 July 2014.
B. Relay entry – each team of 2 or 4 will pay a team non-refundable entry fee of £120. The team also pledges to raise a minimum of £500 sponsorship which is due to be paid to the charity by one month after the event, by 22 July 2014.
2. If a participant’s name or address details change after the initial registration, it is essential that the participant notifies the charity immediately by emailing email@example.com or calling 020 7616 7927. This is so that the participant can still receive their final event day information.
3. The participants are fully responsible for their actions and belongings whilst attending the Event. This includes at the event centres along the route and during the Event itself. The Organisers do not accept responsibility for the actions of the participant nor the consequences of such actions. The participant acknowledges that entry into the Event is at their own risk and that the Organisers, its officers, employees, agents, affiliates, associated companies, sponsors or medical advisers are not responsible for and cannot be held liable for any personal injury, loss or damage caused or sustained as a result of their participation in the Event. This includes the loss, damage or theft of belongings.
4. The Organisers have risk-assessed the route. Our assessment is not definitive and path conditions (potholes, subsidence, fallen trees, flooding and the blocking of paths by land owners etc) can change at any time. Please exercise care and caution, especially if you are unfamiliar with the paths that form the route.
5. Each participant, upon agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, agrees that they are physically and mentally capable of walking the distance. If they decide to retire before the end of the event, participants must follow the Organisers’ instructions on the procedure for this. If a participant disregards these instructions, then all consequences of this action are theirs. If the participant has any doubts about their health or any known medical conditions they should consult and obtain a doctor’s approval before entering and participating in the Organisers’ Event.
6. Participants must be at least 18 years old to enter the Blind Veterans UK 100k Challenge. Evidence of age may be requested. No children are allowed on the Event.
7. Participants will be supplied with a number. This should be clearly displayed on their person throughout the walk. For safety reasons and primarily for identification by medical staff, the swapping, sale, resale or transfer of race numbers is strictly prohibited. Participants must complete their details and sign the back of their race number prior to the Event.
8. The participant confirms that any clothing they wear and kit that they carry for the Event is of a suitable standard as recommended in the kit list.
9. All participants are recommended to carry full drink bottles or water bladders and snack food for the Event. It is also required that participants carry their own lunch for the first sector of the Event. We also advise that participants carry ID and a small amount of money. A mobile phone is also worth carrying in the event of an emergency, although various locations on the routes might have poor signal reception.
10. Participants will be set off at hourly intervals according to their estimated pace time. This will have been agreed to shortly before the Event date. The Organisers reserve the right to change either the start time or use of group starts according to the amount of entries. Participants’ start times will be allocated depending on the anticipated time taken to complete the walk, and must be adhered to. These are put in place to ensure that our checkpoints are open at relevant times. Participants walking outside their allocated time slot will be responsible for themselves, which could mean that checkpoints may not then open to them.
11. In the event that a participant fails to complete the course for any reason they agree to follow the Organisers’ pre-set instructions with regards to withdrawing at a checkpoint and/or advising a member of Event control staff. Not doing so will mean that a search may be organised and the subsequent cost billed to the participant. A vehicle may be available to transport retired participants to the nearest train station but a waiting time may be involved so as to maximise the use of this vehicle. Participants are encouraged to have their own support in place for this eventuality.
12. The Event will officially close at 17:00 on Sunday 22 June 2014 and all participants are encouraged to finish by this time in order to appear in the finishers’ list. After this time the Organisers will offer no further support on the course and a sweep vehicle will collect participants who do not wish to continue and return them to the Event centre.
13. All refreshment stops on the route will have strict opening and closing times. Participants must plan the speed and logistics of their walk around these times. The organisers will not be able to offer support to participants at these stops outside the advertised times.
14. Any participants wishing to take part in the Event using Vibram Fives or bare feet do so completely at their own risk.
15. Event entry fees cannot be refunded or transferred under any circumstances. If you are unable to participate, your entry fee will be treated as a donation to the charity. The Event will take place in all but the most adverse of weather conditions and will only be cancelled or the routes modified if in the opinion of the police or the Event Organisers a participant’s reasonable safety is at risk. If the Event is cancelled there will be no refunds of entry fees.
16. The Organisers reserve the right to refuse an entrant attendance at or participation in Blind Veterans UK 100k Challenge. Any participant who is found in breach of these terms and conditions will be excluded from future Blind Veterans UK events.
17. Those taking part in the 4-person team relay version of the Event will be issued with specific rules and timings which must be adhered to in order to help the Event run smoothly.
18. Blind Veterans UK 100k Challenge complies with the Data Protection Act 1998 and participants have the right of access to personal records held on the charity’s computer on written request. Participants names will be added to the charity’s mailing list to receive information about the other events and activities of the charity.
19. Each participant hereby grants to the Organisers an exclusive, absolute and irrevocable worldwide assignment in perpetuity in the photographs/film/video/electronic representations and/or sound recordings of the participant obtained at the event and grants to the Organisers the right to use and publish such content in any and all media. The participant hereby releases the Organisers from any and all liability from such use and promotion. The participant hereby authorises the reproduction, sale, copyright, exhibit, broadcast, electronic storage and/or distribution of said photographs/film/video tapes/electronic representations and/or sound recordings without limitation at the discretion of the Organisers. The participant specifically waives any right to any compensation they may have for appearing in any of the photographs/film/video/electronic representations and/or sound recordings of the participant at the Organisers’ event.
20. In addition to the above points, participants must adhere to the following points closely when taking part in the Event. These relate to the Countryside Code and the Pedestrian Section of the Highway Code:
• Participants must face oncoming traffic when walking on roads unless it is safer on the opposite side of the road
• Head torches must be worn and turned on at night, on all roads or in places where being seen is important for safety reasons
