Race / event results

After the event, your results will be featured in your personal Athlete's profile.

Registration for an event

When registering for an event you can either create an athlete profile, allowing ease of registration for a single, or any future event, or quick register without an athlete profile.
Athletes registered for an event can transfer their registration to a fellow athlete via invitation.

Fellow invitee athletes can accept invitations until event registration closing date, or sooner if the event is fully booked, or at discretion of the event organiser. Unconfirmed invitations will automatically revert back to the inviter athlete.

Transfer registrations are on a 'like-for-like' event basis; applicable only to the same event as the inviter athlete registered for.

The invitation is valued at the original purchase fee, including promo-codes & discounts, excluding refundable service fees. Incremental and additional services will be charged as per actuals. There is no credit or refund towards unused original purchase fees.

Inviter athletes can always cancel an unconfirmed invitation.
