By submitting your application you are agreeing to enter into the Event and also agree to abide by these Conditions of Entry, the Event Conditions and any instructions given to you by the organisers and officials of the Event.

Where you are provided with a dibber by us to record your time, this should be used in accordance with the instruction.  You agree to return the dibber at the finish line of the Event or within 30 days by post. If you fail to return the dibber, we will be entitled to charge you for the replacement cost of the chip (currently £30).


At all times during the Event you must adhere to all instructions given by the Event officials.

Participation in the Event is personal to you.  You are strictly prohibited from swapping, selling or transferring or offering to sell, swap or transfer the place in the Event or allowing any other person to wear the Event number.  Any breach of this Condition shall render the entry void. If you are found to be in breach of this Condition we reserve the right to exclude you from participation in future Events

You are not permitted to use the following items in the Event:

  • any artificial aid;
  • any pets or animals;
  • any other item that could potentially inhibit the flow or safety of other participants or which we, in our reasonable opinion, deem may cause danger or risk of danger to you or other participants.

You warrant to us that you will be on the Event Date, sufficiently fit and healthy to participate in the Event unaided and in accordance with the Agreement.  If you are in any doubt we recommend that you seek medical advice.

If you plan to drop out of the race for any reason during the event, you must tell a marshal so that we are aware of your withdrawal.  If you cannot contact a marshal, you should call the emergency contact number.


We reserve the right to refuse entry to the Event or to ask you to cease participation if:

  • you fail to follow instructions given by Event officials;
  • you attempt to participate in the Event in a manner that we, acting reasonably, believe:
    • may cause injury to you or another participant;
    • may damage or harm the environment;
    • in our opinion is likely to cause offence;
    • otherwise causes a risk or potential risk to health and safety including any failure, in whole or in part, to comply with the restrictions.
  • in our opinion you are unfit to participate in the Event due to:
    • the consumption or use of alcohol or drugs
    • an injury or illness, or
    • you fail to arrive at the start location at the specified time, or
    • you are unable to make sufficient progress in the Event to allow you to complete the event in line with timelines set by Event officials.

Competitors will only be eligible for a run time and to feature in the results if they complete the course before the official cut off time (subject to variation at the organisers’ discretion).

If you are refused entry to the Event or we ask you to cease participation in the Event, you must remove your runner’s identification number and dibber and return them to an Event official.


Competitors may cancel their entry prior to 2 calendar months before the event and will receive a refund minus an administration charge of £3.00.  The total administration charge paid by the competitor covers the original Fabian4 charge made to the event for that entry (90p), and the Fabian4 refund administration fee (£2.10); hence the net cost to the event is zero.  Cancellation requests received after the 2 month cut-off are not eligible for a refund, i.e., the 17th March 2019 is the last day a refund could be claimed for the Hathersage Hurtle 2019. 


Competitors may ask to defer their entry for one year at no cost.  The last date for notification of deferrals is Tuesday 14th May 2019 at 4PM.  Please contact the Hathersage Hurtle Team (not Fabian4) to request a deferral.


We may cancel the Event if circumstances beyond our reasonable control arise, including, without limitation, war, civil or political unrest, terrorism or inclement weather conditions.

In such circumstances, we will, if practicable, provide written notice of cancellation to the address we hold for you.  In the event that written notice is not practicable due to the timescales involved we will use reasonable endeavours to provide other suitable methods of notice including, email, mobile phone, text message, television and radio broadcasts.  You will receive a refund of the Fee.

In the event of cancellation of the Event we will have no responsibility for any costs incurred as a result of cancellation including any travel or accommodation costs.
