Terms & Conditions
This is a beach-based event run entirely on sand and all competitors enter at their own risk. While medical assistance is provided for the duration of the event no liability will be accepted by the race organisers or sponsors for any injury incurred by entering this race.
Pictures and video footage may be used on the race website or that of our sponsors and in advertising material and media write-ups. All competitors entering the 5K or 1K fun run agree to their photograph being used for these purposes.
On the day of the races, participants must be 14 years or over for the 5K Run. The Fun Run is open to participants of all ages and abilities. Anyone under the age of 11 taking part in the Fun Run must be accompanied by a responsible adult. It is a condition of entry that all competitors agree to the terms and conditions as set out on the race website. In the case of children under 14, it is expected that a responsible adult has agreed to the terms and conditions on their behalf at the time of entry.
Due to part of the race taking place on the award beach, participants are not permitted to be accompanied by or bring pets or other animals onto the course. For the avoidance of doubt, this includes participating with dogs. If you have an assistance dog, please contact East Riding of Yorkshire Council to discuss the suitability of the course for your needs.
Race numbers will be collected on the day from the registration point. You must allow time to collect your number before the race start time. Numbers will be available for collection from 10.00
There are five beach wheelchairs available for use in the Fun Run by participants unable to walk or run the course. These are bookable on a strictly first come, first served basis. Please email the race organisers if you would like to book one – email@example.com
