 The event organiser reserves the right to alter the start time of the event. In the event of a change of start time the participants will be notified of the revised start time with as much notice as reasonably practicable. No refund or in part shall be made for any change in start time for an event provided the event takes place on the specified date of the event.

 The event organiser reserves the right to amend the event format or cancel the event due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control or for any safety related reason with no further liability whatsoever arising from such cancellation.

By registering for Santas of the Run, you agree that you are happy to be entered into our prize draw competition.

The competition is a prize draw for the individuals and teams who raise beyond the required amount of sponsorship, and no entry fee is paid for this competition and you will automatically be entered.

Any individual adult who raises over £30 sponsorship, or individual child that raises over £20 sponsorship by the competition close date will be entered into the competition. The winner(s) will be picked at random from all eligible entries.

The prize for the individual winner is a Christmas Hamper, and the prize for the winning child is free entry to a local attraction.

The term ‘sponsorship’ refers to the amount of money donated to CHSW by the competition closure date, excluding your registration fee and any gift aid that could be claimable on your sponsorship.

Participants are encouraged to raise sponsorship, as your registration fee only covers the cost of your participation in the event.

For clarity, an ‘individual’ is the person who raises the most sponsorship on their own, through their own individual efforts.

The closing date for the competition is six weeks after the event, Sunday 20 January 2019, and all sponsorship monies must be received by CHSW by this date, to be entered in to the competition. Any money received after this date will not go towards the competition, but will still be received and recorded under the individuals record. The competition will then be drawn two weeks after this date to allow for administration of the sponsorship.
