Article 2. Participation
1. Participation in the Event is only possible by a natural person, who on the day of the Event has reached at least the minimum age set by the Organiser.

Participants are not permitted to be accompanied by one or more persons on a bicycle or other means of transport, except with the explicit written permission of the Organiser. Unfortunately, it is not permitted to bring dogs (on a lead or not) to the Event.
An exception to this rule is the Family Run, in which participants in wheelchairs or other adapted vehicles, race runners, participants with a buggy, baby jogger or other baby transport device may participate. These Participants will start last. Wheelers and dogs are not allowed at this event.
The Walking & Wheeling section also offers space for participants in wheelchairs or other adapted vehicles, race runners, participants with a buggy, baby jogger or other baby transport device and also offers the possibility of participation for wheelers.

The Organiser reserves the right to cancel and delete entries of Participants with false personal data at any time.
4. The participant participates personally in the Event. It is not permitted to let another person participate instead of the Participant. Transferring the registration or agreement with the Organiser to a third party is only possible during the pre-registration period. The Participant must change their registration details online. The confirmation e-mail sent after completion of the registration will state until when this is possible and how it should be done. Data can also be adjusted during the weekend of the Event on Saturday between 12:00 and 15:00 and on Sunday from 09:00, both days at the information desk in the Municipal Office at the Claudius Prinsenlaan in Breda.

6. When changing to a higher distance, payment of the price difference between the two distances is due. Changing the distance can be done by the Participant himself in the registration module.
7. The Participant undertakes upon registration to pay the entry fee including any ordered extras and/or voluntary additional contributions to the charity regardless of actual participation.
8. If the Event cannot take place due to exceptional circumstances or force majeure (e.g. accidents, storms, attacks, pandemics, etc.), there will be no refund of the entry fee. The entry fee also includes any extras, such as engraving of the medal, the SMS service and any voluntary additional donation to the charity to which the Organiser has committed itself. An exception to this is the Singelloop running shirt that you may have ordered. This shirt can be obtained by the Participant but no cash refund will be given.

14. A decision by the Organiser to cancel the Event shall not give rise to liability for reimbursement of any costs incurred by the Participants.
Article 3. Liability
1. The Participant declares himself aware of the fact that participation in the Event requires good health in a physical and mental sense.

3. Participation is at your own risk. The Organiser is not liable for any damage, by whatever name, suffered by the participant as a result of participation, unless such damage is the direct result of deliberate intent, gross negligence or negligence attributable to the Organiser.
