Terms & Conditions
All participants in all Bys Vyken Event races should be aware that running (volunteering for) these events are potentially hazardous activities which could lead to causes of injury or in the most extremely rare cases, death. You should not contemplate entering and participating the chosen event unless you are medically fit and able to perform the chosen event and appropriately trained and ready and by your signature on the day of your chosen event you certify that you are physically capable of performing this, including the right of any volunteer, marshal, medical personnel and any other member of our event crew team to deny or suspend your participation for any reason whatsoever. You, by your signature on event day will attest that you have read all of this clearly and agree to abide by this. You should assume all risks associated with running in the chosen events, including, but not limited to: falls; contact with other pedestrian traffic; contact with other participants; the effects of the weather; the conditions of the coast path and dog walkers and grazing farm animals on the coast path and other public rights of way, the muddy and slippery nature of said public rights of way, the technical sections of the coast path, steps, bridges, streams and areas extremely close to the cliff edges, all such risks being known and appreciated by you.
Runners wishing to participate with dogs (canicross) can do so but will only limited to one dog per runner and must take note of the fact they should be starting at the back on the start line and will have their times recorded as assisted and have a 5 minute delayed start. Don't let this put you off though as your dog will also receive a momento.
All and any runner will be disqualified due to misbehaved dogs and/or failure to clean up after the dog. Also please be aware we will be travelling through farmland so there will be other animals such as cows, sheep, horses and other dog walkers/ runners not associated with our events on the day. Please keep the dogs under control.
You should accept that the use of headphones is extremely dangerous due to the sections we shall be taking in such as the South West Coast Path and stretches of busy roads on a Saturday and dangerous because marshal instructions cannot be heard properly, therefore you are advised to consider not wearing them and adhering to said conditions.
No amount of litter on the courses will ever be accepted by us. ALL marshal points will have rubbish bags to get rid of your empty bar/gel wrappers and empty bottles and I'm sure you will have a spare pocket in which to store your rubbish.
Any litter dropping on the course will result in disqualification. There are animals wildly grazing in places and they shouldn't suffer because of careless littering. Raising money for RSPB and The National Trust means we here at Bys Vyken Events are passionate and appreciate the hard work these charities do to maintain the landscape that we all so often take for granted.
There will be cut off times as stated in the main 'Race Day Info' section on this website(the same one which will be emailed to you 14 days prior to your chosen event).
All events will be limited to 200 participants only and there will be mementos to every finisher (including participant's canine).
Age limit for these events is 18+ due to the strenuous activities aforementioned above in these terms and conditions. (UNLESS KIDS FUN RUNS)
