Terms and conditions policy

Organising sporting events requires a considerable amount of forward planning, time, risk and expense. Approximately 9 – 12 months prior to our triathlon 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.
