TERM AND CONDITIONS
The Glen Clove Extreme Duathlon 2018 (‘The Event’) is a ‘multi-sport’ event that begins with cycling before progressing to running/walking and then returning to cycling. The Event is to be held in the Glen Clova/Glen Doll area on Saturday 6th October 2018 and is owned and operated by Tayside Mountain Rescue.
Only persons aged 18 years or above on the day of the Event (6/10/2018) may register for The Event.
Competitors can only register online. The Event Organisers are not responsible for technical, hardware or software failures of any kind, lost or unavailable network connections, or failed, incomplete, garbled or delayed computer/Internet transmissions or other errors or malfunctions of any kind which may prevent receipt by the Event Organisers of a registration.
The personal information provided by the Competitor when signing up to The Event will be stored on a secure web database, will not be shared with third parties and only used for the functional purpose of The Event by The Event Organiser.
Competitors shall receive an official race number which must be clearly displayed.
If at any time it is discovered that any Competitor should have been ineligible to participate in The Event (or if participation in The Event should have been refused for any reason whatsoever), The Event Organisers reserve the right to disqualify from/refuse entry to such Competitor to The Event. Further, The Event Organisers reserve the right to reject at any time any Online Registration Form which is believed to be fraudulent, or to disqualify any Competitor believed to have not complied with the Terms and Conditions from attending, or participating in any future Glen Clova Extreme Duathlon events. The Event Organisers shall not be liable in any way to the Competitor as a result of any such disqualification or refusal.
Please be aware the mountain element of the 2018 event will not be marked/flagged. Maps will be provided in the Race Pack and an overview map with the route marked will be on display in the Registration Area. A good standard of navigation will be required to complete the course safely. Competitors must appreciate the potential seriousness of being in the mountains in bad weather/poor visibility. Volunteer marshals will be strategically placed around both the bike and mountain element, in the event of competitors becoming injured or getting into difficulty. A kit check will be undertaken before competitors are allowed to compete. Any competitor who does not have the minimum kit will have an opportunity to purchase items from the Tiso pop-up shop. The minimum kit MUST be taken on the mountain element – this maybe checked and anyone found not having this, will be subject to a time penalty.
