Terms & Conditions
Disclaimer and agreement
All Freak Events races are run under British Triathlon (BTF) rules. In entering a Freak Events event you do so in the knowledge that by its nature there are inherent risks in racing. You also declare that you are fit enough to take part in the event. You will not hold Freak Events Limited or its appointed officers responsible for any injury or loss. All Freak Events races and entries are subject to their rules set out in this Freak Events web site. In the unlikely event of abandonment or cancellation, all or part of my entry fee may be retained for the management and administration of the event.
If event entry numbers are low/limited to any event, for any reason, then Freak Events Limited (in conjunction with BTF officials) will not use a chip timing system. Synchronised stop watches and video camera/s will be used as an alternative.
Data Protection information
Your details will be retained on computer by the organisers and UK Results only for the purposes of Freak Events Limited and its marketing for future events promoted by the organisers and will not be passed to anyone except for emergency services use, if appropriate.
Freak Events Withdrawal Policy
As soon as an event is created, we begin to incur costs. Your entry fee contributes to the cost of arranging and managing the event with these elements being just some of the areas that your entry fee helps to provide for your enjoyment and safety;
- Health & Safety Checks / Licensing
- Venue hire, changing facilities and toilets
- Race entry information and race packs production
- Race number production
- Marshalls and cleaners
- Energy snacks
- Goody bags
- Timing equipment
- Course signage
Organising an event requires a considerable amount of forward planning, risk and expense. A Freak Event takes 12 months at least to plan, and from day one expenses are incurred.
As race organisers we need entries early to help cover our costs and upfront investment for a top class Freak Event. We of course welcome early entry for this reason, so we have a generous refund policy just in case anything changes between your entry and the event and you find yourself unable to take part.
Our withdrawal policy reflects this and is as follows. Refunds will be issued after entry to the event under the following conditions:
- Notification dated 30 days before event = 50% refund
- Notification dated less than 4 weeks (29 days) before event = nil refund
Please note that strictly under no circumstances can race entries be transferred to any other person or to/from any other event.
If you wish to withdraw from an event please notify Freak Events in writing by email or by post (address below). Date of withdrawal is date of the email or as postmarked on the envelope. Telephone messages are not acceptable.
If sending via post, please give your full name and the event you are withdrawing from:
‘Withdrawal (name of event)’
Freak Events Limited
7 Brendon Avenue
Somerset BS23 2TE
Race prizes given to competitors on the day of the race following successful completion of the event will not be made available to
anyone who fails to turn up or who has withdrawn from the event.
