RUN LAPS, EARN BOOZE

RUN LAPS, EARN BOOZE

The team barrel-running relay event where you earn booze tokens. PLUS the best beer festival in sport.

Carry our special lightweight plastic barrel around the 2 mile lapped course, with optional wet ‘n’ wild challenges on route. Enter as as a team and run together or alone – you choose your tactics.

50 types of beer, wine and fizz to choose from!

About Your Team’s Barrel

We have selected these special, lightweight plastic barrels as they offer easy grip handles and a realistic weight. They weigh 4.3kg (about as heavy as 2 Chihuahuas!) and have dimensions of 43cm x 52cm. Enter as a team to share the load. It’s the barrel’s laps that count. Solo barrels are yellow. Team barrels are brown.

The Barrel is included in your team’s entry and will be posted to the bill payer pre-event.

Join us at glorious Claydon Estate in Buckinghamshire on the 29th July for Barrel of Laps. Carry your barrel around 5 laps and take on our on-course challenges and the first round is on us. 13 laps earns a second drink and a Marathon Session medal.

Kick back at our ma-hoos-ive beer, cider and wine festival with 20 different ales, gallons of fizz, lashings of cider and wine tastings too. With on-site camping all weekend, bell tents and a huge big top tent providing undercover space for the beer, plus our killer music programme featuring the Bon Jovi Experience and live band Avatar, this is a classic weekend in the English countryside you’re not going to want to miss.

All prices include VAT at 20% and are subject to an administration fee.

Why have the extra fee rather than just putting up the entry price?

• No-one likes hidden extras. We are upfront about this fee. The fairest way for us to be fully transparent is to separate this cost out and explain it. The Processing Fee has discrete input costs independent of the direct costs that produce the event. We reserve the right to change this fee based on the processing costs at any time.

Why use the system we use?

• The online payment process is provided by Paypal so it is very secure.

• It offers the opportunity to pay directly from your Paypal account (if you prefer this to paying by credit card or debit card).

• It is the cheapest and best value solution we can find and it is tailored to the events you are entering. We feel it is very competitive in the marketplace, versus the fees charged by other professional event operators.

• It integrates with charity donation web sites so there is a quick and easy way for you to raise money and obtain your fund-raising discount, should you choose.

This fee covers the costs of operating the following:

• The credit card and Paypal processing fees

• The IT development in building, hosting and maintaining the online entry system.

• The associated bank fees and insurances required to process the event registration fees

• The administration personnel costs of running the registration database

• VAT at 20%

Why add on a percentage rather than a set fee?

• Rat Race offer such a range of challenges that our price points vary massively. Therefore it is considered the fairest option that all customers are charged the same %age pro rata.

How can I save money?

• The processing fee will be less the earlier you enter (as it is calculated as a %age) so take advantage of the Early Bird offers to get the best prices across the board.

• Buy a Rat Race Season Ticket

• Raise money for our charity partner Children With Cancer UK* and race for free, see details here
