Booking Protect


Human Race Registration Protection

At Human Race, we understand your event entry is important and that sometimes you enter events but certain circumstances mean you can’t take part. Our withdrawal policy lets you withdraw from an event either for a full refund or less an admin fee, and you can transfer your entry to another individual or event for a small fee. On top of this we now offer Registration Protection which gives you the chance to claim a full refund of your entry fee and booking fee (T&Cs apply). Here are some simple FAQs about Registration Protection to explain more…
