POLICIES

It is our policy to try and put on the best race possible, to give our athletes the best race experience we can.

Event Cancellation:

An Outback Events owned or managed event may be delayed or cancelled due to adverse, inclement, or unsafe weather. Should the event be delayed, the starting time of the event will be moved back accordingly. The delay will be communicated to all participants. The Outback Event management team and local law enforcement has the authority to cancel an event. If cancellation of an event takes place, please follow instructions of the event officials and local law enforcement personnel. Your entry fee is not refundable if an event is cancelled due to adverse, inclement, or unsafe weather. The Race Director also reserves the right to modify the course at any time before or during an event by his/her own judgment or if instructed by local law enforcement personnel or park officials.

Rollover Policy:

The Rollover Policy for the Half Iron races allows for a full rollover to the following race year on or before March 31, 2011 for Oliver and April 30, 2011 for Osoyoos (less a $75.00 administration fee). Requests for a rollover must come from the affected competitor (not from a friend or a spouse), and must be in writing or by email, we will not accept a phone message request.  We will confirm the rollover of your entry fee to 2012, and explain the procedure to follow.

No race transfers or rollovers

Selling of race entry prohibited

Transferability of Entry:

Event entry fees are not transferable to another person. Any purchase or transfer of registration other than through Outback Events management compromises the sanctioning and insurance of the event through TRIBC.

Package Pickup:

Photo ID and TRIBC or ATA card (if applicable) is required at packet pick-up. You and only you can pick up your race packet. If you arrive at the race site without photo ID, you will have to participate as a spectator only. Sorry, TRIBC does not allow us to give you your race packet without ID.
