Rob McLean Junior Triathlon

Race Cancelled

 

Dear Parents and Athletes,

I hope that you and your families have kept fit and well over the intervening time since my last update at the end of March.  We have been closely monitoring the situation as the COVID-19 pandemic has progressed and had hoped to re-schedule the race for the beginning of September.  However, even with pools opening in some form over the next few weeks, it has become clear that it is highly unlikely that we would be able to safely organise a race for 300 junior triathletes and spectators in this timeframe.  As everyone’s safety and enjoyment is our upmost priority, we are sadly having to cancel this year’s Rob McLean Cambridge Junior Triathlon.

Please bear with us a little longer while we work out the best way to process refunds, but as we intend to be back next year, we will also be offering entrants the opportunity to carry-forward their entries to next years race.  The obvious exception to this will be the upper year youth entrants who we will refund.  I’ll be back in touch as soon as possible.

Keep fit and healthy!

Jim Mills (Race Director)

Terms & conditions of entry

Terms & conditions of entry
Please read these details carefully before completing the on-line entry form. By entering the race, you agree to all of the terms and conditions as set out below: –

Entry procedure
Your application to enter our race must be completed using the online entry system provided by British Triathlon Federation (BTF), which operates strictly on a first come first served basis. Upon completion, your details will automatically be submitted to the entry database and payment will be made.

It is your responsibility to check the BTF website to establish whether or not your entry has been confirmed. Acceptance of your entry fee and confirmation of your entry does not constitute a contractual relationship in itself giving you the right to race. The race organisers have the ultimate right to determine who can and cannot compete in this race.

Most of our races are over-subscribed. The numbers allowed for each race are the absolute maximum based on course capacity and risk assessment, taking account of probable dropouts, therefore regardless of circumstance, we cannot accept more than the maximum of 370 entrants for this race.

Please enter this race with the name as shown on your triathlon membership card (DO NOT USE NICK NAMES such as ‘Al’ instead of ‘Albert’) as this may mean that the British Triathlon cannot match your membership to you, for insurance purposes.

Payment
The individual Entry fee for British Triathlon members is £20.00 and a valid British Triathlon membership card will be required on race day. This evidence will be your new Triathlon England/Welsh Triathlon or Triathlon Scotland membership card. Membership cards not belonging to the Home Nation Countries MUST declare an ‘INTERNATIONAL ENDORSEMENT’ or picture the ITU logo to be valid in British registered races.

Non Triathlon Association members must pay an additional charge of £1.00 for an English Triathlon Day Membership when registering and paying online.  The total cost for non Triathlon Assoc. members is £21.00. (Competitors will be sent an electronic copy of their English Triathlon Day Membership via email)

Payments can only be made via the BTF website. You will need to accept BTF’s terms and conditions when entering.

Closing date
The closing date for entries for this race will be midnight 1 June 2019, but it is highly likely that the race will be full long before this date. There will be no entries accepted after this time, even if the race is not full, as we need this time to plan waves and organise the results system and so cannot add anyone after this time. There will be no entries allowed on the day under any circumstances.

Reserve list
If the race is full before the closing date, then a waiting list will be operated, (please email the Race Directors at email address at base of page). Your entry details will be taken including your payment details but you will only be charged if you are offered and accept a place in the race.

Withdrawals and refunds
The club does not allow a competitor who has a place and cannot race to defer their entry to the following year, nor does it allow substitutions for any race entry. Withdrawals must be notified to us in writing (or by e-mail) before the closing date.

Eligibility
I declare that I am the legal parent or guardian of the registered competitor and that they are fit to take part in this event. I understand that they participate entirely at their own risk and relieve the race referee and the race organisers/personnel of any responsibility for injury, loss or damage sustained to either person or property as a result of participation howsoever caused. I also declare that the registered competitor’s bicycle is in a roadworthy condition and that I and the registered competitor agree to abide by the rules of British Triathlon.

Event Changes
The Event Organiser reserves the right to amend the Event format at their sole discretion (such as by way of illustration from a Triathlon to a Dual Discipline Event or other suitable race format) or cancel the Event due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control or for any safety related reason. In the event of the Event being cancelled it shall provide the Participant with a full refund of the fee paid less an admin fee with no further liability whatsoever arising from such cancellation. If the event is changed to a Dual Discipline Event or other format the Participant will not be entitled to any refund and there shall be no further liability whatsoever arising from such change of format.

Race details and results
All race details and course maps will be published on the Cambridge Triathlon Club website and race entry pages as soon as they are finalised. Race results will also be published on the website as soon as they are available – which is usually on the day of the race.

Please continue to check back regularly for updates to your entry status and in case there are any last minute changes or announcements.
