If have purchased an accommodation option as part of my race package and choose to cancel my race package up to 30 days prior to the event. I will be entitled to a refund of 50% accommodation price (in addition to partial race refund detailed in 6a). c. Once purchased, the race + accommodation package cannot be split. i.e. if a participant finds alternative accommodation, but still races, there is no refund on accommodation. d.

a. Race event entries may be transferred to another person (within the same race held on the same date and year) up to 7 days prior to the event. A charge of £15 will be made by Ranger Ultras to cover administration costs and time. It will be the responsibility of the outgoing participant to inform Ranger Ultras in writing of their intention to transfer their entry and name of the person receiving that entry. It will be the responsibility of the recipient to provide either an SiEntries number or additional information necessary for Ranger Ultras, in addition to the £15 administration charge, before the transfer can be completed. Ranger Ultras will not engage, be responsible for, or party to, any exchange of monies between the incoming recipient and the outgoing participant. b. If a participant has purchased a race plus accommodation option and wishes to transfer their place, this must remain as one entity and cannot be split in the transfer process. i.e. Ranger Ultras will not process a race plus accommodation option transfer into two separate entities.
Due to the investment of entry fees into race infrastructure, venue booking and tracker hire, well in advance of the event, deferrals are not allowed.
I accept that in the event of personal injury I will respect the opinions of the Event Organisers and their medical staff if they choose to withdraw me from the event.
I agree to abide to all instructions, directions or decisions given by Ranger Ultra personnel, during the race and at all checkpoints.
I understand that any abuse or discrimination of any nature towards fellow contestants or Ranger Ultras personnel will result in immediate expulsion (without reimbursement of paid fees) from the race.

If trackers are used during for the race, these will be taped to your rucksack strap in a position which ensures best signal transmission. This should not be moved or removed until the end of the race. You are responsible for looking after the tracker device and for handing it in to Race HQ when you finish. If you fail to do this you are responsible for any charges associated with returning the tracker.
The tracker may have an SOS button fitted. This is for emergency use only. Its activation will result in race safety team(s) being mobilised and potentially blue-light services such as Mountain Rescue, Police and Ambulance. Racers understand that by pressing the SOS button their race is over at that point.
In the event of adverse or extreme weather the race organisers reserve the right to amend the route and programme accordingly.

However, athletes who have completed the route prior to any significant amendments (original route) will rank higher if they complete the course.
In the event of adverse or extreme weather you may be held in certain areas on the course or at a checkpoint. This is when course conditions are a danger to your well-being. In this scenario we cannot be held responsible for any additional time this adds to your race and you will be released as soon as possible, and when possible in order. However, cut-off times may be amended to allow for delays. We are not in charge of the weather.
