Terms The above named organisation from this point forward will be referred to as ‘The Promoter’. All applicants both prospective and successful from this point forward will be referred to as ‘The Applicants’.

From the moment that the above Promoter starts to organise an event, there is a considerable amount of work, expense and risk. Each event takes many hundreds of hours of forward planning, thousands of pounds of expense and financial risk.

As with all companies incurring overheads such as premises, staff, marketing, equipment, insurance, websites, financial planning is an integral part of event management and promotion and as such we endeavour to ensure that we can cover all costs in order to provide a secure footing for all events promoted. The following ‘Terms & Conditions’ are set in place to ensure that we not only continue to provide applicants with safe and enjoyable events, year on year, but that we set the highest standards for delivery and customer service.

Applicants who withdraw from the event prior to the Withdrawal Date will receive a deferral for the Round Donny Run 2019.

6: Attempted Swapping of entries Please note that the swapping of entries between applicants is strictly forbidden as it invalidates insurances undertaken by the Promoter to cover the event. The consequences of attempting such an undertaking by any applicant is so serious in jeopardising the continuation of events that any applicant found to have passed their entry to another applicant and any applicant found to have taken up that entry will both be banned for life from all future events organised by the Promoter.
