We have extended the closing date until the 10th January 2017. If you enter after 5th January you will need to collect your race pack on the day (please arrive on race day with plenty of time to do this).

You are no longer able to amend or transfer your entry as race packs are being prepared to be mailed out. 

Refund Policy

We understand that sometimes you enter a race then something crops up.  As soon as you enter we incur costs so we have come up with the following refund policy that we hope is simple and fair:

  • If you cancel up to and including 30th November 2016: Entry fee minus £2 admin charge
  • If you cancel up to and including 23rd December 2016: Entry fee minus £5 admin charge
  • After the 23rd December 2016 we are unable to offer a refund

You can transfer your entry using the on-line entry system up to 1st January 2017, after this we send all our race packs to print so are unable to offer transfers after this date.  All transfers must be done by you through this on-line registration site.

This is a winter race and we will be operating full road closures on the route again this year to reduce the possibility of the race being cancelled on the day due to bad weather. Please take note of weather conditions on the day and wear appropriate footwear and clothing for your own safety.  In the unlikely event we do have to cancel the race on the day we are unable to offer a refund. All proceeds from the event go to support local charities and the continued running of the 4 Villages Half Marathon.
