What happens if all the race organisers start cancelling their events? Everyone will loose hundreds of pounds. Surely there must be some kind of "insurance" against this?
Lots of questions. Has 220 asked why refunds were not offered? Why could the company not suspend entries whilst they worked through the road closure application process, only cancelling if the application was refused? Why cancel Xterra, surely it doesn't go anywhere near a public highway?
I'm part of a small company organising swim, bike and run events. We don't spend entry fees until after the event & we have a generous refund policy in the event of withdrawl etc. As organisers we must look after entrants and provide value for money.
Yes we are following up on the refunds situation – will announce on the website as soon as we have any new information...
Guys, just so you know, Go Beyond Sport will give any Xterra Competitor a 15% discount on the entrance fee to their Mud & Mayhem X Duathalon on March 16th. (This race is also doubling as the Triathlon England Eastern Region X Championships.) Just e-mail us at [email protected]
