Terms & conditions
Terms and conditions
Organising an event requires a considerable amount of forward planning, time, risk and expense. Approximately 9 - 12 months prior to our events taking place, work begins and costs are incurred. These include administrative, insurance, advertising, marketing, equipment, website and staff costs. As an event draws nearer, we continue to incur costs, many in relation to the number of entrants in the event.

Conditions of Entry:
By entering a Punishing Event (either online or postal) applicants agree to abide by our terms and conditions as listed below

Confirmation of Entry:
Cashing of cheques confirms acceptance of postal entries. An acceptance email from Entry Central confirms acceptance of online entries. A list of entries will be posted on punishingevents.com prior to events taking place. It is the entrantís responsibility to inform Punishing Events if any of these details are incorrect so they can be corrected prior to the event taking place.

Competitor Withdrawal:
We endeavour to make sure we provide you with the event that you have entered. If for any reason we have to cancel an event, we will give you a full refund. As with other events (sports, cinema, theatre, concerts, etc), if after paying for them you have to withdraw, you will not receive a refund, regardless of the reason (injury, pregnancy, holiday, business, work, etc). However, if you do need to withdraw from any of our events, we are prepared to honour you entry into an alternative event at no extra charge or an entry into the following years event, provided we are notified 3 weeks before the event.
