Sport Systems Terms & Conditions
Under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, we are not obliged to give refunds as we fall within the part-exempt distance contracts. Therefore entry fees are nonrefundable other than in exceptional circumstances. If you register other participants on their behalf, you have done so with their permission and their acceptance of the terms and conditions. When Sport Systems sells an entry on behalf of a race, or event, it is done on a NO REFUND basis. If an individual event has terms and conditions that differ from these, then they will be listed via that event’s own website and/or the Sport Systems web page relevant to that event.
Why an event can’t refund
Did you know that anything between 10% and 25% of entrants choose not to turn up on race day? If an event had to make refunds to all these entrants budgeting would be impossible and most, if not all, events would not take place.For most races your entry fee is invested in the cost of staging the event and frequently there is a donation to a charity or good cause. Costs of staging the event cover the main costs to contractors,suppliers, administration, etc. that are already committed by the event well before race day. From the moment you enter, the organisers start to incur administration costs and banking charges,simply by processing your entry and accepting the payment. They would also incur further charges in administering cancellations and additional banking changes for processing refund payments.
If you have entered an event but are unable to participate, some races allow number swaps, but there is a strict procedure to follow. You can make enquiries about this by firstname.lastname@example.org. For health and safety reasons you must not in any circumstances give your race number to anyone else unless the number swap procedure has been correctly followed.
