Welcome to Stockton River Rat Race 19TH AUGUST 2017

This is River Rat Race a 10 or 5km race with a twist. Swim, wade, crawl, climb, jump, splash and run around our urban obstacle course which sees us dive back into the River Tees. Join over 1000 Rat Racers for our wet ‘n’ wild unique running course, linking together many special water and shore based activities at truly iconic venues en route.

The 5km and 10km courses both follow the same outbound route and both take in the Tees Barrage, the famous HM Bark Endeavour Ship jump and the White Water Centre. Take on the full distance, or for those who love the obstacles but hate the running, the 5km route awaits! As always, no special skills are required, just a pair of trainers and a sense of adventure.

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.
