  • Credit - Credit towards a subsequent Rapid Ascent event less an administration fee of 15%
  • Refund - Refund can be offered less an administration fee of 20% of the entry fee paid with a minimum of $10 and a maximum of $50 (Adventure Race) or a maximum of $40 (Trail Run).

To arrange a credit or refund, please email [email protected]

  • If a competitor voluntarily withdraws from either the Mountain Raid or Trail Run and notifies Rapid Ascent LESS than 2 weeks prior to the race: No cash refund or entry credit will be given in any circumstances.
  • Any payment for Personal Accident Insurance or SMS result service will be refunded in full.
  • Payment for online entries is via Credit Card transaction via our secure, 128-bit encrypted credit card payment gateway. Should you require alternative payment options please contact Rapid Ascent
  • An individual or team may transfer their entry to another individual for a $15 transfer fee up to 12 hours before the event (but the earlier the better). No transfers will be accepted after this time. Email [email protected] to arrange this.
  • Providing there are spaces available, a team may transfer from a higher entry fee event (eg long course event) to a lower entry fee event (eg short course) up to 12 hours before the event. In this case, the difference between the two entry fees will not be refunded.
  • Providing there are spaces available, a team may transfer from a lower entry fee event (eg short course) to a higher entry fee event (eg long course) up to one week before the event for the cost of the increase in entry fee only – no admin fee will be charged. Any entry upgrades requested within one week (PRIOR: Friday 6th February 2015) of race day will incur a $15 upgrade fee.

If the event is deemed unsafe or unable to be held on the proposed date due to extreme climatic conditions, the following steps shall be followed:

  • Rapid Ascent will endeavour to reschedule the event to another date with all entries carrying over to the new date.
  • If you are unable to attend the newly proposed date no refunds will be made.
  • If the event cannot be rescheduled for any reason, Rapid Ascent will endeavour to refund a component of your entry fee after all event costs have been taken into consideration OR offer all participants a entry credit (of a value to be determined by Rapid Ascent) to a future Rapid Ascent event.

Note:

  • In all other circumstances it should be assumed that the event is still going ahead UNLESS otherwise stated.
  • Rapid Ascent reserves the right to alter or amend the originally proposed course(s) from that which was published on the event website for any reason.
  • Advice of any event postponement or change will be made on the front page of the event website as early as possible before the event, and will be posted to the official race notice board at the registration marquee.
