Deferral Request Application

In the event of injury which prevents a registered runner from taking part in the event, we offer deferral to the 2021 event. This must be supported by a note from either a Doctor or Physiotherapist.

To apply, please enter your surname along with your Race reference (beginning RHM) and Worldpay reference, which can be found within the Transaction Confirmation email that you received shortly after entering. Please give a brief description of the injury which will prevent/prevented you taking part and attach a copy of the supporting note/certificate (only .jpg, .jpeg, .png or .gif files are accepted). If you have a .pdf file, there are many .pdf to .jpg converters available ie

Once your application has been submitted it will be reviewed by the Events Team. The Events Team will only begin to process deferral requests from December 2020 onwards and will be in touch at a later date to notify you if your deferral has been accepted.

If successful you will receive a confirmation of your deferral, please note your deferral is not complete until you receive confirmation. If you have not heard from us by January 2021 please get in touch via our email address:

If there are any irregularities with your application we will contact you to clarify but please note that there may be a further delay.

If you have any queries please contact the Events Team by email –


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. No additional purchases (Race T-shirts, car parking etc.) will be carried over. Deferrals may not be transferred to another runner. Deferrals may be revoked at the absolute discretion of the event organiser at any time without notification.
