Terms and conditions of entry

I am an amateur as defined by the UKA and agree to abide by its rules and the rules of St Albans Half Marathon. I will participate only if I am fit to run the distance selected.

Any medical treatment necessary may be given without reference to parent or guardian and I will not hold St Albans Half Marathon, or any other person or body involved in the organisation of the event responsible, for any injury, loss or illness resulting from the event.

I confirm that I have no medical disabilities that would endanger myself or others taking part and that I will be over the required age for the event I am entering.

In the unfortunate circumstance of the event being cancelled through circumstance beyond the control of the race organisers, I understand, and accept, the rules and terms of the entry including that there will be no refund of race entries and purchases via St Albans Half Marathon

You have the right to cancel your place in any one of our events and receive a full refund (excluding admin fee) if your cancellation is notified in writing to the event team within 7 days of your entry date. After this period we regret that we cannot refund, transfer or defer any entry fees, whether due to injury, illness, lack of training or a last minute change of plan. We strongly advise you take out the booking protection insurance available as this should allow for refunds if your cancellation is for reasons covered within the policy.

Additional purchases made in the registration process are not covered by the booking insurance. St Albans Half Marathon will refund Medal insert and Pace Pocket purchases up until 5th June 2019. After this date no further refunds will be possible as orders will have been placed.

Race numbers are individual to you and you should not swap or transfer to another participant as this is against UKA rules.

The wearing of headphones, or similar devices, (other than those medically prescribed), is not permitted in races on any single carriageway roads. Under UKA rules, you are allowed to wear bone-conducting headphones. We will be allowing the use of Bone Conduction headphones ONLY for the running half marathon but the runner must declare this in their registration form before the event or they may still be disqualified. Any runner seen using any other form of headphone or who has not declared using bone conduction headphones will be disqualified. The Race Director has taken advice and in-line with current UKA rules and BARR recommendations on health and safety grounds when establishing our head phone policy. Please respect our rules, we don't have many!

No pets or other animals are permitted in the race. People with guide dogs will only be permitted to enter the fun run if we are advised in advance so that a position at the rear of the race can be allocated and safety advice can be discussed. If any partially sighted athlete needs a guide to help them round the half marathon course there will be no entry fee for the guide, although obviously they would not be participating in the race in their own right.

By entering the event you give permission for the free use of your name, voice or photograph in any broadcast, telecast, advertising promotion or other marketing of this event. Please note the finish line video will be publically available on the official event website.
