Terms and conditions
From the moment that we start to organise an event, there is a considerable amount of work, expense and risk. Each event takes many hundreds of hours of forward planning, thousands of dirhams of expense, as well as financial risk. Our terms and conditions reflect this.
These terms and conditions are set in place to ensure that we can continue to provide athletes with safe and enjoyable events, year on year.
