Strider 14X Racing Rules
STRIDER® Racing was designed to let young children compete in a fun, family-friendly, competitive atmosphere. Children of all sizes and skill levels are encouraged to participate. In an effort to create a culture of good sportsmanship with these young riders, parents and other spectators are asked to follow the guidelines below to ensure the race remains friendly and supports all participants. Healthy competition means keeping the race fun. Kids would rather have fun than just focus on winning.
Striders go ahead in all but the worst of weathers. We will race through the rain. However, should torrential rain or thunder and lightning strike, we will stop the event for health and safety reasons.
This judgement is down to the Race Directer and no refunds can be made for adverse weather.
Event Cancellation by you
29 days plus - Full refund available minus £1 administration fee.
28 days notice 50% of the paid entry fee per race cancelled minus £1 administration fee.
7 days or less, no refunds or transfers. The above policies are not dependant on circumstances and are final. We appreciate kids have off days and last minute illness but unfortunately we still need to staff, purchase medals and trophies and run the event.
Please email Karen@striderbike.co.uk and note we will not deal with any cancellations over the phone, by text or through Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Inform us of your full name, riders name and which races need to be cancelled.
Event Cancellation by us
In the unlikely event, we need to cancel a race, all fees and race entry costs will be refunded. In the case of bookings over 60 days old it may be that we need to refund you by cheque due to time constraints of refunds to certain cards.
Force Majeure: If Strider is prevented (directly or indirectly) from performing any of its obligations under the entry agreement by reasons of act of God, strikes, trade disputes, breakdowns, government or political action, interruption of transport, acts of war or terrorism, acts of omissions by a third party for any other reasons whatsoever outside of Strider's control, then Strider will be under no liability whatsoever to you and may as its option, cancel the event.
If a Strider event is cancelled we will not be liable for costs of travel fares, hotels, or any other expenses that may be incurred.
