Walk Ten terms and conditions

Description

Walk Ten Stormont is approximately 10kms in distance, as measured by our events team. The route varies in difficulty level from flat and easy to moderate with a couple of steep climbs. They cover a range of terrain from flat roads to uneven surfaces on woodland tracks, paths and in fields. We recommend that participants are fit and active before they take part.

General

Before registering for this event, you should be fit to participate, seeking medical advice if appropriate. You should inform event organisers of any relevant existing medical conditions and any arising after registration that might affect your participation. Your safety is of paramount importance. Please ensure that you follow all safety instructions and training procedures when participating in events.

We have taken all reasonable steps to eliminate the chance of injury but there is a certain minimal risk in every activity and you should withdraw from the event if you have any doubts. Marie Curie, its employees, agents and volunteers accept no liability whatsoever to participants or spectators in respect of any loss, damage or personal injury which may be sustained in the course of this event other than personal injury (including death) caused by our negligence. Liability cannot be accepted for any damage, injury or loss arising from the negligence of participants (whether through failure to observe the rules of the event or otherwise).

Entertainment, including live bands and performers, are subject to change.

Walk routes are also subject to change due to health and safety considerations.

Dress code and kit list

For your own safety, we will not allow you to walk if you aren’t suitably dressed. Please wear sensible walking boots or trainers. We ask all participants to bring a torch to the event, as it will be dark when the event finishes, and suggested event kit includes: insect repellent, sun cream, sun hat, sunglasses, walking boots and a raincoat as appropriate.

Age restriction

Walk Ten is open to all ages, but under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. All participants under 18 require parental consent and it is for parents to decide if the event is appropriate for their child, seeking additional information if necessary.

We reserve the right to prohibit individuals from taking part, and will do so if participants under 18 have failed to provide evidence of parental consent.

Cancellation

In the unlikely event that Walk Ten is cancelled in the weeks prior, you will be notified by email. Our website and social media pages will also be updated in line with the cancellation.

It may be that, due to bad weather, Walk Ten is cancelled on the day. If this is the case, we will notify you immediately by telephone.

Timings

Timings may be subject to change. If the weather takes a turn for the worst during the event, the post-walk entertainment will be brought forwards from 10pm.

Late starters

All walkers must be on time for event start. Marshals and medics may not be in place for late starters, and as a result the events team will use discretion to stop late walkers joining.

If a cut-off point for completing the walk needs to be introduced for health and safety reasons, this will be done at the event manager’s discretion.

Photography

Photographs and video footage may be taken of you during the event which may be used to publicise future events and the work of the charity generally including on our web site.

Dogs

Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times and are the dog owner’s responsibility. Please clear up after your dog and be considerate to other participants by keeping an eye on your dog and keeping it on a short lead.
