The moment you enter our race we start to incur administration costs and banking charges, simply in processing your entry and payment. We also incur further charges in administering cancellations and processing refund payments. Your entry fee is invested in the cost of staging the event, and the main costs to contractors, suppliers, administration, etc are already committed well before race day.
Furthermore, most races do not offer any form of refund at all if a runner decides to cancel their place because of injury, illness, lack of training, or change of plan. There are many other instances of higher-priced services, such as plane, train, or theatre tickets where no refunds can be given for cancellation in these circumstances.
However, in fairness to half marathon and 10 k of Vizagnavymarathon, participants will be eligible for the refund if due to any unforeseen circumstances the events get canceled. But if the event is rescheduled to a later date, then the participants will not be eligible for the refunds
Running in someone else’s race number can have very serious consequences if the runner suffers a medical emergency – we have had cases where we have been unable to identify or contact families of runners who have suffered potentially life-threatening conditions whilst using someone else’s race number. The accuracy of the race results is also affected when runners are placed in the wrong age and sex category.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel applications, including applications, or alter the date of the event, the course route, or distance.
Payment of refunds and confirmation of carrying Forward Entries (deferrals) or Guaranteed Entries will normally be issued within 14 days of receipt of your cancellation notification, although there may be instances of delay in busy times close to race day. Half marathon entrants wishing to carry forward/ defer their entry will be separately notified of the entry procedure in advance of entries release for the following year’s Vizagnavymarathon. Notification will be sent by email or post to the last address registered on our records. Applicants should notify us of any address change.
Any Refund done in case of event cancellation will be done within 45 days of the announcement of the event cancellation.
