DEFERRAL OF ENTRY

In the event of injury which prevents a registered runner from taking part in the Windsor Women’s 10k, we offer deferral to the 2023 event. This must be supported by a note from either a Doctor or Physiotherapist.  To defer your entry, you must complete the following steps.

  • To defer your entry, you will need to email joanne@running4women.com before 5.00pm on Friday 26th August 2022 with your supporting note, you will be added to the list and receive a confirmation email. Unfortunately, we are unable to defer any runners after this time.
  • Once added to the deferral list it is your responsibility to email us between 1st January 2023 and 11th February 2023 to request your deferral entry code for the 2023 event. This will be emailed to you so you are able to re-enter again through the online entry system.
  • Deferrals are granted at the absolute discretion of the event organiser. A deferral permits one standard entry to the same race as previously entered for the following year. Deferrals are only valid for the following year’s event and will not be ‘rolled over’ or extended. Deferrals may not be transferred to another runner.

Deferral of Entry will close Friday 26th August 2022

If the race is cancelled due to Covid19 then all entries will automatically be deferred to 2023

Do not bend twist or fold your number.

If you wear headphones be aware of people around you- don’t drift & trip others up! It is best not to wear them – just soak up the atmosphere! We do ask that runners don’t wear headphones – but If you really can’t run without them then we ask that you please be vigilant so that you are able to hear marshal’s instructions and emergency vehicles – it’s really important, and for your own safety and for the safety of others, please use common sense and show a duty of care to those around you. Bone conduction headphones are acceptable and are endorsed by UK Athletics

No, transferring of entries is not allowed. Your running number is unique to you and enables our safety team to access the personal details you have supplied to us quickly, if needed on race day. Giving your bib to another runner will result in both you and them being disqualified from this race. UK Athletics rules state: “Numbers are issued to the individual athlete completing the application form except with the specific authority of the Race Organiser. Athletes who receive transferred numbers without permission will be disqualified from the race. Both runners will be subject to disciplinary action by the appropriate National Association.”

Use Safety Pins to fix your number to the front of your vest/T-shirt, one pin in each corner.
