In other words, once an athlete’s entry fee has been paid, they will not receive a refund if they cannot participate. Failure to comply will result in disqualification from the current Good Life Halfsy and a ban for the following year.

The Good Life Halfsy will be held in most weather conditions and cancellation is unlikely. However, due to adverse or otherwise dangerous conditions, the event may be altered or cancelled. In the event of cancellation under such circumstances, refunds will not be issued.
