Once your deferral has been reviewed and confirmed, your entry online will show a Tag ‘Deferred to 2021’ or the year you have deferred to, please note your deferral is not complete until you see this Tag.

Deferrals are normally processed between October and December each year for the following years event. If you can't see a 'Deferred to' Tag on your entry by the end of December please get in touch via our email:

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

Deferrals are granted at the absolute discretion of the event organiser. A deferral permits a like for like 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. 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.

If you purchased, and have not received, any additional items with your entry (Race T-shirts, Bib clips, car parking etc.) you will either receive your merchandise in the post, a refund for your merchandise or they will be deferred with your race entry. At the sole discretion of the race organiser, you will be notified when your deferral/refund has been processed.
