 Payment Terms 

 Payment for the event must be made in full at the time of submitting an online or postal application either by credit/debit card or enclosed cheque/bacs details. Any subsequent transfers or alterations will incur an administration charge of £ 25 per person. 


 If for any reason you have to cancel your booking, the following charges will be made: Until 15th April 2018 - £ 35 per person. 16th April to 13th May - £140 per person. 14th May or later - £259 per person (or full amount paid). We therefore strongly advise that you have holiday insurance to cover the risk of having to make a late cancellation. 

 General Terms 

 When you submit an application you confirm that you and all persons included in the application have read, understood and accepted these terms & conditions. This event is not suitable for children under the age of 14. However, older children are welcome provided a responsible adult accompanies them and that they are experienced at walking the distances required each day. If you or any other people included in this application have a medical condition, which may affect you during the course of the event and of which - for your own safety - we should be aware, please provide details to us in writing, stating the name and brief details of the condition at the time of booking. Such details are held in strict confidence and are destroyed immediately following the event. 

 Personal Property 

 Footprints of Sussex cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage to your baggage or for illness or injury unless directly attributable to our negligence. We therefore recommend that your insurance covers not only late cancellation but also personal accident, illness and loss of possessions. Our public liability insurance is provided through Event Insurance Services Ltd, BH24 3PB. 

 Force Majeure 

 This event will take place irrespective of inclement weather; however for safety or logistical reasons we may alter any part of the event in view of conditions on the day. If we are hindered or prevented by circumstances not reasonably foreseeable, or beyond our control (such as force majeure, civil war, riot, epidemic, environmental disaster etc.) from performing any or all of our duties in this event, then we shall be relieved of all liability, financial or otherwise, in respect of failure to perform such duties.
