Cancellation Policy

During the Covid-19 pandemic the following change has been implemented in relation to cancellation conditions.

If during the Covid pandemic the event is cancelled as a result of restrictions imposed by government participants will be offered the opportunity to transfer to another date for the event at no extra cost or cancel and incur a $25 admin/cancellation fee.

Cancellations for any other reason will attract the standard cancellation fees as set out below.

  1. Cancellation/Refunds

    Cancellations made from the time of booking until 15 October 2022 will receive a refund less $50 admin/cancellation fee.

    Cancellations after 15 October 2022 will only be accepted with an accompanying doctor’s certificate, in which case the entrant will be refunded as follows:

    • 100 km/100 mile—$100 AUD
    • 60 km—$60 AUD
    • 16/25/42 km—$20 AUD
    • 10 km—$10 AUD

    No refunds are available for cancellations received after 10 November unless the event is cancelled due to Covid restrictions.

  2. Cancellation/Termination by Cashton Group trading as Running Wild

    Running Wild may terminate the contract either before or after the event starts, subject to the following conditions:

    1. Adverse weather conditions which threaten the safety of participants or on the advice of Parks Victoria or authorised government emergency services personnel.
    2. Breach of rules and/or regulations and instructions by the participant that he/she was informed about prior or during the event.
    3. Failure by participant to observe instructions by the event management.
    4. If the participant disturbs materially the fulfillment of the contract in any other way or his/her behaviour is not in conformity with the contract in such a way that an immediate termination of the contract becomes justified.
  3. Cancellation of the Event/No Show

    If the event is cancelled because of circumstances of force majeure, the participant will not be entitled to any reimbursement of the entry fee and compensation of other losses, such as travelling or accommodation expenses. All claims will be forfeited for no shows.

  4. Services Not Utilised

    If the participant gives up during the event due to illness, injury or any other reason not attributed to the organiser, does not take part in individual stages or utilise services, the participant shall not be entitled to any proportional refunding of the entry fee concerned.

  5. Acceptance of registration

    The event organisers reserve the right to accept or reject any application to participate in the event. The organisers decision will be final.


Running Wild wishes to acknowledge the contributions of its sponsors and supporters. Without their assistance this event would not be possible.
