Complying With Race Rules

As highlighted in the Club’s Code of Conduct, it is essential that members abide by all rules which are issued by race organisers. One of the most important is that race swaps should not take place unless permitted by the organisers and, if they are, having followed whatever transfer process they set out.

There are a number of reasons why unauthorised transfers shouldn’t take place, including:

  • Most races require a note of any medical conditions for a runner, which would be referred to if someone took ill during a race – with a swap, they may refer to the wrong information, which could have disastrous consequences

  • Impersonation of one runner as another could invalidate race insurance, leaving the runner exposed should an incident arise

  • Race results will also be invalidated

  • Runners have the potential to be banned from that race or more widely (some organisers will consider an outright ban for both runners from all of their races).

The Club would like to reiterate the importance of this rule. The unauthorised transferring of numbers reflects on the Club as well as the runners involved and cannot be tolerated. Any members found to be doing so may be made subject to the Club’s disciplinary process, the potential consequences of which include expulsion as a member.

 

Please don’t run that risk for yourself. After all, a race is just a race. However keen you are to take part, it is likely to be run next year, and so please ensure that you comply with this important rule.
