Entering the Old Ghost Ultra requires explicit acceptance of necessary terms and conditions. Being very clear up front about how things will work in the event of any unforeseen or forced changes may help to save misunderstanding and disappointment later on.
The Terms and Conditions applicable to the Old Ghost Ultra are below. You'll be required to accept these during the entry registration process if you wish to participate.
1. I agree that I have entered this event at my own risk in all things including, but not limited to, accident, injury, medical event, and any damage or loss of any kind to person or property.
2. I agree that none of the organisers, sponsors, volunteers or any party associated with this event shall have any liability, financial or otherwise, which might arise, whether or not by negligence, from any direct or indirect loss or damage of property or person which might be sustained by me or any party directly or indirectly associated with me, from any intended or actual participation in this event or its related activities.
3. I indemnify the organisers, sponsors, volunteers or any party associated with the event from any liability resulting from any act or failure to act on my part.
4. I agree to abide by all event rules and any requirements included in the entry details as listed on the event entry form, website, programme, other material, and as advised at any time up to and including during the event.

7. I accept that an "Act of God" or other circumstance such as, but not limited to, weather or natural events beyond the control of the organisers may require and result in changes to the course or cancellation of this event. I accept this will be at the sole and complete discretion of the organisers. If this is necessary, I accept that I will not be eligible for any refund of my entry.
8. I accept that no refunds will be paid to any entrant who fails to participate or fails to complete the course for any reason.
