If you will be entering a race online you should note Condition H.20. This explains that because we will provide your details to the race organiser immediately, the service will be considered to have begun, and you will no longer have the right to cancel.
If you do not wish to waive your cancellation right in this way, you should not proceed with race entry via the website.
You have rights under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 to cancel any Contract with us during an initial "cooling-off" period. Some of these rights and your obligations are summarised in the following parts of this Section H and a copy of the complete regulations can be found at: http://www.legislation.hmso.gov.uk/si/si2000/20002334.htm
There is no financial penalty for cancelling this contract during the "cooling-off" period.
No Right to Cancel
You shall not have the right to cancel any Contract under these cooling-off provisions if that Contract is:
(a) in relation to goods or services where the price of the goods or services in question is dependent on fluctuations in the financial market that we cannot control;
(b) in relation to any goods made to your specifications or clearly personalised or which by reason of their nature cannot be returned or are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly;
(c) for the supply of audio or video recordings or computer software if they are unsealed by the consumer;
(d) for the supply of newspapers, periodicals or magazines; or
(e) for gaming, betting or lottery services.

We shall not charge you for our cost of recovering the goods under H.9 if you have the right to reject the goods under any other express or implied term of the Contract or it is found that the requirement that you return any goods if you cancel the Contract is an "unfair term" within the meaning of the Unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999.
Possession and Care of Goods

Your duty under condition H.12 shall cease if we have not asked you in writing to make the goods available to us at your premises within the 21 day or 6 month period (as the case may be) that is referred to in Condition H.16.
