Terms of Service

Safety

Runners must be over 15 years of age and are responsible for their own safety.  The organisers will not be held responsible for any injury or illness incurred during or as a result of participation in this event, or any property lost or damaged. The race route will re-open to traffic after 1½ hours, and if you choose to take longer, you will not be considered part of the race.

Payment

All payments are non-refundable and race entry is non-transferable. We do not offer refunds under any circumstance, as we have race costs that will still need to be paid.

Race dates may be subject to change due to circumstances outwith our control, however in the unlikely event of a date change we will offer the chance to defer race entry to the next year.

Communication

We do not post anything out. Email addresses will be used as primary communication for the race – the person who places the order should get an order confirmation email after payment, and a separate payment confirmation email from Paypal. Individual entrants will receive further information emails closer to the time of the race.

Race numbers / timing chips will be collected at registration from the race venue, Balfron High School, on the morning of the race. Please leave sufficient time for this. T-shirts, medals and race goodies can be collected after the race.

Privacy Policy

Photographs / video may be used for publicity purposes. Email addresses and other contact information from entrants will be used to communicate information about the race entered. We have a separate opt-in mailing list used for marketing purposes solely for future Balfron 10k races, you can unsubscribe from this at any time. We do not share any contact information with any sponsors or other organisations, however as we are governed by Scottish Athletics / UKA rules, runner details will be retained for up to one year after the race. If there is a request for information, we will contact you for your consent.

By entering the race you consent to the sharing of certain information including name, club, age range, with our chip timing partner, StuWeb, and the publishing of race results. Date of birth is optional but enables a cross check and links a runner’s profile on the chip timing website.

You have rights over the data we hold in accordance with ICO / GDPR rules. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
