CoppaFeel! Running Events 2022 Terms and Conditions

Thank you for your interest in joining TeamBoobs!  Before you sign up, we need to let you know about the terms and conditions in relation to this event – please do read them and let us know if you have any questions or queries. 

The Event

This event is not organised by CoppaFeel! As a charity, CoppaFeel! has purchased places in the event in order to raise funds. Participation in the Event as part of Team Boobs is subject to the following Terms and Conditions in addition to the Event Organiser’s own terms and conditions, which must be fully complied with at all times.

Securing your place

There are two ways to join Team Boobs in this event:

  1. By securing a CoppaFeel! place through completing a CoppaFeel! application form. We will ask you to pay a £20 registration fee to secure your place and pledge to reach the sponsorship target of £250. This is called a Guaranteed Charity Place. All fundraising activities carried out by participants holding a Guaranteed Charity Place must be in aid of CoppaFeel! only.
  2. By getting a place directly from the race organisers and paying any associated registration fee directly to the organisers . This is called an Own Place.  We ask that you pledge to raise the sponsorship target you stated in your registration form.

Registration Deadlines

Guaranteed Charity Place participants can register up until the closing date as specified on the event page on the CoppaFeel! Website. However CoppaFeel! reserves the right to close registration early in the event of all places being allocated. In this instance there will be an opportunity to join the waiting list. Once CoppaFeel! has entered you into the race it will be up to you to confirm your place by the deadline provided by the events organiser. If this deadline is not adhered to, you would not be eligible for a refund on your registration fee.

Please also note: Acceptance of a charity entry is subject to confirmation that CoppaFeel!’s agreed fixed allocation of entries has not been exceeded. Confirmation of which will follow shortly after signing up and any refunds will be dealt with.

Own Place participants can register to join Team Boobs on any date up to and including event day. Please note that if you register less than two weeks prior to the event we can not guarantee to send you fundraising materials and/or running vest.
