Terms & Conditions


Struggle Events cannot refund event entry fees should you not be able to attend the event. Struggle Events do however transfer your entry to a nominated rider of your choice or defer your entry to the following year (1 year) or another upcoming Struggle event. You may only defer your event entry once.

The transfer/defer window closes on 1st April 2024 for Struggle Dales; 1st June 2024 for Struggle Moors; 1st August 2024 for Struggle Borderlands; 1st June 2024 for Le Tour Legacy Ride. You must not offer your place to another rider without notifying the event organiser or they will not be allowed to start the event. Riders who cannot provide photographic proof of identity at sign on will not be given their number and timing chip. To transfer or defer an entry email: hq@ridethestruggle.com

Event Cancellation: 

Should the event be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances outside the control of the Struggle Events or any circumstances of force majeure (natural and unavoidable catastrophes) Struggle Events cannot provide a refund for your entry fee. Your entry fee will be deferred to the following year or you can transfer to another event of your choice. 

Event Merchandise:

Struggle merchandise will be available for collection at sign on the day before or morning of the event so long as the order was submitted within the deadlines. All orders are manufactured for the customer upon payment. We do not hold pre-manufactured stock. Therefore, we cannot promise a refund once the payment has been made. We will try to refund you as long as the garment order has not been sent to be manufactured. If you cannot attend the event but would like your product shipping to you, you will be required to pay a shipping fee. This fee will be calculated in accordance with the market price postage fee at the date the shipment is requested for. Should we not be able to manufacture the product due to demand or lead times we will then aim to offer a refund.
