Terms & Conditions

Cancelling your entry or withdrawing from the race

We understand that your circumstances can and do change after you have entered a race. Nice Work has a proud reputation for being flexible when receiving requests to withdraw from a race, but for clarity, here is our policy for withdrawals:

If you wish to withdraw from the event and we are notified up to 21 days before the date of the race, we are happy to offer you the opportunity to:

 
  • Defer your entry to another race within the same series (if the race is part of a summer or winter series). There is no charge for this.
  • Transfer your entry to a friend/colleague. As long as we have their full details 21 days in advance of the race, there will be no charge for this. Please note that transferring your entry to somebody else without notifying us is irresponsible and dangerous, particularly in a medical emergency. Doing so can also lead to disqualification from future races.
  • In certain circumstances, it may be possible to transfer your entry to another Nice Work managed event; please email us for more details.

If you wish to withdraw from the event and we are notified between 21 days and 14 days before the date of the race, we are happy to offer you the opportunity to:
 
  • Defer your entry to another race within the same series (if the race is part of a summer or winter series). There will be a £3 charge for this to cover the cost of your race number and timing chip. The £3 is payable upon collecting your race number and chip at the next race.
  • Transfer your entry to a friend/colleague, as long as we have their full details. There will be a £3 charge for this to cover the cost of a new race number and timing chip (please note that chips are single use and registered with each entrant's details). The £3 is payable when your colleague/friend collects their race number and chip at the race. 
  • In certain circumstances, it may be possible to transfer your entry to another Nice Work managed event, subject to a £3 charge. Please email us for more details.

If you wish to withdraw from the event less than 14 days before the date of the race, we are happy to offer you the opportunity to:
 
  • Defer your entry to another race within the same series (if the race is part of a summer or winter series). There will be a £5 charge for this to cover the cost of your race number and timing chip, plus a contribution towards the runner fee paid to the venue. The £5 is payable upon collecting your race number and chip at the next race.
  • Transfer your entry to a friend/colleague, as long as we have their full details. There will be a £5 charge for this to cover the cost of a new race number and timing chip (please note that chips are single use and registered with each entrant's details). The £5 is payable when your colleague/friend collects their race number and chip at the race.
  • In certain circumstances, it may be possible to transfer your entry to another Nice Work managed event, subject to a £5 charge. Please email us for more details.
If you wish to withdraw from the event less than 7 days before the date of the race, we reserve the right to charge a £10 deferral fee or transfer fee - but this is a concession and not automatically given.

No deferrals or transfers can be offered within 48 hours of the event.


Once you have deferred your entry, the entry is only valid for the following year and cannot be deferred for a second time. Deferred entries are strictly non-transferable.

We believe that our withdrawal policy is one of the most generous amongst race organisers and, for that reason, we do not offer refunds of race entry fees.

Race cancellations

If the race is cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control, we will do our utmost to be reasonable. Last minute postponements, for instance, due to weather, are beyond our control.

On race day, if the weather is severe or forecast to become severe during the duration of the event, the race start time may change, the race may be postponed or the event may be cancelled.


If the race is cancelled because of bad weather, refunds cannot be offered. However, we will offer a transfer to next year's race at a discounted price - the level of dicount will be proportionate and linked to the race costs incurred.

In all instances we will try to be as fair as possible.

Please note, for some events that Nice Work organise in conjuction with third parties or events in which Nice Work are providing a Timing or Entry Management Service an alternative deferral policy may be in force.
