Refunds and Transfers: 

  • All participants agree that all entry fees for the Event are non-refundable / non-transferable under all circumstances, including, but not limited to, cancellation of the Event for any reason including withdrawal of your participation in the Event, or change in the date, nature, or format of the Event.

  • Participant entries may, at the discretion of WannaDo, be carried over to a rescheduled event date, if any.

  • Why don't we offer refunds?

    • Many event companies often have a no-refund policy for sporting events due to several factors. First, event planning involves substantial upfront costs, including venue reservations, permits, and logistics, making it financially challenging to reimburse all attendees. There is a lot of planning that goes on behind the scenes, with many costs being incurred long before a race has taken place.

    • On entering an event, the ticketing company and transacting bank take their fees for processing that ticket. The entry count is constantly monitored so we can plan accordingly. Medals and apparel are ordered 3-4 weeks prior to the event, any late entries also have be factored in. Crew members are booked and any additional crew is brought in to manage registration queues to speed up the process so we can create a seamless participant experience. Nutritional partners have to plan and supply nutrition for water points and finish line requirements as well as crew to manage those points. Venues deposits are paid and have to be informed of numbers so they can cater for any food requirements and plan staff and transport. Coffee vendors need to buy milk for your coffee fix. Medical teams have to be brought in based on numbers to ensure runners are safe, ThinkBike marshals booked, goodie bags organised, sample products borrowed/stolen/begged for and photography teams plan their teams based on those numbers.

    • We do get refund requests and do look at each on of them however, we have to strict to our no-refund policies as close as possible.

    • If refunds are given to someone who fell ill, or double booked themselves, or can't make it due to "unforeseen reasons", that means that refunds have to be given to anybody who gives us a refund reason, anytime. This impacts everybody who planned accordingly to give participants the best experience. Paying to enter an event causes that sense of commitment from your side to attend the event. As we are committed to providing the best experience for that event by planning accordingly.

    • Refunds cant simply be carried over to the next event as we would still have paid - the venue, the additional crew members, the medical team, the medals, the bank fees, etc. Unfortunately, that is why we do not give refunds.
