IPOD'S AND MP3 PLAYERS
For 2017 we will be allowing the use of Bone Conduction headphones ONLY but the runner must declare this in their registration form before the event or they may still be disqualified. Any runner seen using any other form of headphone or who has not declared using bone conduction headphones will be disqualified. In 2016, 70 runners were disqualified for breaking this rule.
The Race Director has taken advice and in-line with current UKA and BARR recommendations on health and safety grounds when establishing our headphone policy. This is for your safety, as listening to music during a race may distract you from being able to hear instructions from race officials and other runners on the course. Please respect our rules, we don’t have many!
CANCELLATIONS AND TRANSFERS
You have the right to cancel your place in any one of our events and receive a full refund (excluding admin fee) if your cancellation is done within 7 days of your entry date. After this period we regret that we will not refund any entry fees, whether due to injury, illness, lack of training or a last minute change of plan.
Participants are able to transfer to a different race or transfer their registration to another participant. This option is only available until 1st May 2017 and an additional charge of £2 will be made to the participant who wishes to transfer. If a participant is transferring to a race with a cheaper entry fee the difference is non-refundable.
If a participant is unable to attend the event and doesn’t wish to transfer their place, they can contact St Albans Half Marathon via email with their name and date of birth to request a deferral discount code. This code will entitle them to 50% off 2018’s event registration for any race and will be valid for one use until 30th September 2018.
