Pontefract 10k

In applying to enter the Pontefract 10k I agree to the following:

•I enter the race at my own risk and will not take part unless I am medically fit to run a 10k within 2 hours.

• I accept that, if I am a slower 10k runner with a finishing time of over 2 hours approx, I may be asked to run on the pavements in the latter stages of the race as the roads are reopened to the traffic.

•The 10k start will close 10 minutes after the main race start (09:00am). 10k competitors who do not start with the main field may not receive official race times.

•The event provides a supervised baggage facility for competitors, but all baggage is left at owner’s risk, and the organisers do not accept any liability for loss of damage to goods left at the baggage facility.

•To the extent permitted by the Unfair Contract Terms Act neither the event organisers, One Step Closer Events, nor their charity partners, sponsors or suppliers will be liable for any loss, damage, illness or injury resulting from negligence in consequence of my participation in this race.

•The organisers reserve the right to refuse or cancel applications, to alter the date of the event, the course route or distance. No refund can be given if the race has to be foreshortened or postponed due to circumstances outside the organisers control.

•Please note that we operate a strict 7-day refund policy. If you wish to cancel your place and receive a full refund, you must do this within 7 days of signing up. After this time, we have the right to decline requests for full refunds. In 2022 we will not be deferring places to future runs.

•10k entrants will be 15 years or older on race date.

•I agree to abide by the Race Rules, UK Athletics Rules of Competition and to obey marshal’s instructions.

•I understand that wheeled vehicles (other than registered disabled wheelchair entrants), self-propelled vehicles, cycles, roller skates and dogs are not permitted at this event for safety reasons.

•Entries to the Pontefract 10k are personal to the applicant. I promise not to re-sell, defer to a later event, pass or transfer my entry to another person, or allow another person to wear my race number, even if I cannot participate due to injury or illness.

•I agree to receive emails, mailings, marketing and/or mobile phone text messages from One Step Closer Events, the race photographers, sponsors and charities in relation to my race entry and merchandise order for the 2022 event, including related offers from the organisers and our commercial or charity partners, plus invitations to enter the 2022 Pontefract Half Marathon and Pontefract 10k 2023, whilst retaining the option to opt out of mailings should I subsequently decide to cancel my order.

•I consent to still & motion images of my participation in the event being used for marketing and publicity purposes.

•I agree to my personal and medical details being released by the medical team to the event organisers to inform my next of kin and statutory authorities in the event of a medical emergency.

•I will not participate in the event without wearing my registered race number on the front of my shirt or vest or without first completing the next of kin and medical details form on the back of my race number.
