To apply, please enter your surname along with your Race reference (beginning RI) and Worldpay reference, which can be found within the Transaction Confirmation email that you received shortly after entering. Please give a brief description of the injury which will prevent/prevented you taking part and attach a copy of the supporting note/certificate (only .jpg, .jpeg, .png or .gif files are accepted).

Once your application has been submitted it will be reviewed by the Events Team. The Events Team will only begin to process deferral requests from May 2020 onwards and will be in touch at a later date to notify you if your deferral has been accepted.

If successful you will receive a confirmation of your deferral, please note your deferral is not complete until you receive confirmation. If you have not heard from us by July 2020 please get in touch via our email address:
