Second Wind Running

Terms and Conditions

Below are Terms and Conditions for participation in a Second Wind Running event (run by iRunEvents Ltd). If you have any queries regarding these please contact

Health and Safety

Your safe participation in running events is our primary objective.  Our events are organised with due care to the participants, organisers and general public, whilst respecting the environment. 

We aim to ensure your safety by assessing significant risks, avoiding or mitigating these where practical, including ensuring your awareness of them.  Long distance trail running by its very nature involves some level of risk; uneven terrain, road crossings, other users, unpredictable weather etc.  This cannot be avoided, but we endeavour to minimise the risk of these with your awareness.

When you enter one of our events, by whatever means, you are agreeing that you participate at your own risk and that no responsibility shall lie upon race directors, race organisers, or any other parties involved in facilitation of the event.

Our longer events will include a requirement for participants to carry some items of mandatory kit.  These items are specifically chosen to minimise the impact of some minor incident becoming a major problem and to maximise your chances of success in an event whilst not detracting from the enjoyment of it.

We have a medical support team at all events, and part of your responsibility as a participant is to look out not only for yourself, but for others who may be in difficulty and require medical support. Whilst you can always communicate through a marshal, carrying a phone is always highly recommended in any event.

At most events, water and other refreshments are supplied although you are welcome to use your own. Please ensure that you hydrate responsibly during and following an event.  You might gain seconds by rushing through a feed station, but lose minutes or hours later when you dehydrate or run out of energy.

It is totally your responsibility to ensure you are healthy and fit to take part. If you are not feeling well, have not trained or have an injury you should consider not taking part. There will always be another day for another race.

An entrant shall be deemed to have made him/herself/their self, familiar with, and agreed to be bound by the UKA Anti-Doping Rules and to submit to the authority of UK Anti-Doping in the application and enforcement of the Anti-Doping Rules.


The UKA Anti-Doping Rules apply to entrants participating in the sport of Athletics, for 12 months from the [date of entry], whether or not the licence holder is a citizen of, or resident in, the UK.

Refunds, transfers and deferment

Once entered, you have 7 days in which you may cancel your entry and receive a refund, from which will be deducted a handling fee of 5%. After this time, you request a cancellation up until two weeks before race-date. You will be refunded 70% of your entry fee.  

Please contact us at with proof of your entry so that we may refund this by the same method that you used for initial payment.

Within two weeks of race-date, you may not cancel or defer the entry.  We will consider transfers, but will require all the details of the person to whom the transfer is being made (name, gender, date of birth, club, email, phone & address) and may request payment of an administration fee (£4 for events up to £50 entry, £10 for events of £50 and above).

Covid guarantee:

If an event is rescheduled due to Covid, you will automatically be deferred to the rescheduled event, but you may instead request a full refund less a payment process admin fee of 8%.

If you cannot attend due to Covid, in advance of race-day, you may request to defer to a future event or to cancel with a full refund less a payment process admin fee of 8%.

Race day procedure

You will be receive details of the event by email in the lead-up to the event, but number bibs, chips, wrist bands etc. are always handed out at registration on the day. This is so that we know who is out on course. It is your responsibility to ensure that you arrive in good time. If you are late, we will not refund your entry, and you may not be permitted to start.

Once you have collected your race number, you must either finish the event, or if you retire, you must let us know.  We will likely search for people who have started, but do not appear to have finished.

Your personal items and race kit including running gear and any clothing are your responsibility and it is up to you to ensure their safekeeping. Bag storage is provided at most events, but this is not secure so we recommend you do not leave items of value in the bag storage.


Course knowledge

We will always publish course maps on our website in advance of any event.  Whilst we may put out some markers on some of our shorter events, it is ultimately your responsibility to know the course and to follow it. 

It is of great benefit to be familiar with a course in advance of the event, not only to minimise the risk of going off-route, but also to know the hills, difficult terrain, location of water stations etc.  Furthermore, for events that will involve night-running, it is best practice to check out that part of a route at night – things often look very different at night. 

Course knowledge is always very valuable when it comes to race day.


Your results will be posted on our website (and therefore possibly replicated elsewhere). Normally, this will constitute your name, gender, age-group, club and time. 

Data Protection.

Please note that we hold data in accordance with the Data Protection Act (1998) and the General Data Protection Regulation (2018).  

  1. We will hold and store your data responsibly and securely. 
  2. We will only hold data for as long as it is needed, including historic race results etc. 
  3. We will only ask for information from you that is relevant to you entering our events. 
  4. We will only share information with third parties when needed as a requirement of what we do - for example for chip timing, or sending race results and reports to governing bodies. Medical information will only be shared with race-day medical services that we employ.
  5. We will only provide the minimum required information and will make sure that these third parties all have their own data policies. 
  6. We will not share your information with other irrelevant third parties.
  7. You may at any time request that we delete your data that we hold. Please email with your request.
  8. Photos and video footage will be taken during events and may be posted on our website or our other online places.  If you do not wish for your image to be used please email us so that we can endeavour to suppress this or take down any existing images.
