INFORMAL TRAINING RUNS DURING THE WEEK!
TRAINING TIP OF THE WEEK: QUESTION FROM A MEMBER-
Q: Is it ok to participate in a race I did not register for?
Dear Member, We have a lot of new members who may not be familiar with this concept and may not have any bad intentions, however, running a race without registering is known as "Banditting". So, the answer is no, it is not ok to participate in a race you have not registered for.
There are a number of reasons why this practice is not ok.
2) Taking from others who did pay: If you complete the event and get a medal, You could potentially be taking it away from someone who did pay for their registration and may not get one at the end. This is not fair for the individual who did pay their fee.
3) Running the risk of getting caught: In general, when you take/do something you did not pay for, you run the embarrassing risk of getting caught and not being able to participate in that event ever again. So in summary, we advise that if you are planning on participating in an event that you go ahead and register for it. For more information on race etiquette and other important tips Click Here
Keep our questions coming! We are here to answer them and help you train for success! :)
