Bath Triathlon Cancelled

Posted: 15/09/2014 at 16:57

IMHO, I think you're being a bit pushy

From what I can see on the website, they only made the decision to cancel on Friday.  Today is Monday, ie the next working day

What's the issue with requesting a refund?  How are they supposed to know whetehr you want a refund or to transfer your entry? They state clearly on their website that they will transfer the entry over to the 2015 event if you don't contact them

I think you need to remember that this is a business and they are probably doing all they can to keep admin costs down which would otherwise mean an increase in entry fees for 2015 as they try to recoup these costs.

Their website says they have started processing refunds today

Cancelled Cambridge!

Posted: 15/09/2014 at 14:13

The cancellation of this event came up for discussion at a meeting I was at last week as a few people questioned why the event was cancelled and not turned into pool swim, duathlon etc.

One thought that was put on the table was to do with insurance.  If the Race Organisers have to re-jig the race they would have to bear these costs themselves.  If they can cancel the event on grounds covered by insurance, they have no extra expenditure (other than admin costs for the refunds) and can offer a refund

What would you rather have?  A haphazard re-arranged race or a full refund?

I don't think it's fair to inflict that on the unwary



















but I am sure you could search 'Lady Imelda' into the forum search if you were so inclined.

Anyone got a picture of Barlos? Apart from the one above?

Do you want the one with him scratching his stomach or the one with Lady Imelda?

Looking for sprint tris for next year

It might be that a lot of Tri's are multi-lap so that it is better from a supporter/spectator perspective

You say you're happy to travel 30 miles, but 30 miles from where?

I wonder if Scott Wilson ever came back to see if anyone had taken time out to offer advice and possible solutions to his concerns

If he didn't, I wonder why he posted in the first place

If he did, it's a shame he didn't have the courtesy to acknowledge the replies he got

why are start times for sprint tris so early?

I think it's time you looked for a more supportive Husband!
