Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel upcoming 2020 Wiggle Super Series sportives and the Festival of Sport. We’re passionate about sport and it saddens us to have to do so, but due to the quickly changing situation we have to put the safety of our customers, staff and the wider community first.

All current ticket holders have been contacted and will receive a full refund.

We hope we will be able to bring these events back to our customers in 2021, but for now we need to watch the unfolding situation and follow what is safe and best for all.

Guide to Wiggle Events

Guide to Wiggle Events

How do I select the most appropriate event for my ability and requirements?
Before you enter, take a moment to think about what you want from the event. Do you want a challenge where you can push yourself? Or do you want to spend the day at a more leisurely pace? Once you’ve established this, you need to be honest with yourself about your current ability level: what’s your current training? What distances and terrains are you experienced in? Although it’s fantastic to push yourself and achieve new goals, it’s also extremely important that you don’t leave yourself vulnerable to injury and exhaustion. Once you’ve done a few events, you’ll have a better idea of what to expect and will be able to push ahead throughout the season!

Why should I take part in an event?
Entering an event is a great way to set a goal and a focus. Events give you something to look forward to during the working week and the entry is an incentive to make sure that you get outside in the fresh air at the weekend. Plus training for events can improve your fitness. The event day itself will leave you with the great feeling of having achieved a goal, honed skills, and met new people that share your interests.

What do the different event types and formats mean?
Wiggle offers a range of different events which we categorise using the following terms:

  • Standard - This is the base standard of distance. Not too hard not too easy, just right!
  • Short - Slightly shorter than standard distance. Aimed more for enjoyment.
  • Epic - The longest distance option for those up for a challenge!
  • Under 16 - Any child under the age of 16 can ride with appropriate adult supervision.

Are these events safe and is first aid provided?
Our event organisers all have a wealth of experience between them. All routes are checked, well-marked and there is always somebody that is trained in First Aid on-site. However, entrants are urged to take necessary precautions to avoid leaving themselves vulnerable to accidents and injury. For some events, there is a time limit on course completion to ensure that participants are not left out on the route.

Will there be parking available at the event start?
All Wiggle events include allocated car parking. We advise entrants to share car journeys where possible to ensure that congestion and traffic in and around the area are kept to a minimum. Parking at Sold Out events are likely to reach maximum capacity and entrants are therefore advised to arrive early to ensure that they secure a car parking space.

Do events start and finish in the same place?
Wiggle event routes are circular and start and finish at the same place. This is to make sure that it really is easy for entrants to turn up, ride and go home after a successful day out!

Are there age limits for events?
Most of the Wiggle Super Series events offer an Under 16 option. The full-length routes are designed to offer more difficult challenges. The Under 16 option is our way of offering something for everybody – regardless of age, gender or skill.

What do I need to take with me to an event?

  • Ticket - Please ensure you print out your e-ticket and take it with you to the event. You will be required to present this at registration.
  • You will need to bring a Bike to participate in Cycling Events
  • Helmet - You will be required to take your helmet with you to registration.
  • Appropriate cycling clothing
  • Cycling shoes
  • Nutrition
  • Spares for road side repairs
  • Water bottles

Do we publish event results?
Wiggle doesn't publish the results to a public audience. Results are available online. For further information please refer to your entry pack.

The Terms and Conditions detailed below apply to all entrants participating in any Wiggle event organised and operated by Wiggle.com. Completion of an entry form or purchase of an entry by every participant acknowledges acceptance of these Terms and Conditions by the participant.

  1. Wiggle event tickets can only be purchased through wiggle.com
  2. The participant accepts that the event they are entering is not a race in any format. Results will be published in alphabetical order only and anyone considered to be competing against others, will be stopped from riding and banned from entering future events.
  3. The participant is fully responsible for their actions whilst attending the event. This includes the event centre and during the ride itself. Wiggle do not accept responsibility for the actions of the participant nor the consequences of such actions.
  4. Each participant, upon signing the registration form, agrees that they are physically and mentally capable of riding the distance they have chosen. If, during the event, they decide to change their route and distance, then all consequences of this action are theirs.
  5. The Event Registration Form must be completed by a person aged 18 years or over. Evidence of age may be requested. Participants under the age of 18 years will be allowed to participate in the event with the consent of their parent or legal guardian who must sign the Event Registration Form on behalf of the underage rider. Signing is also an acceptance for the actions and consequences of the underage rider. Under 16’s need to be accompanied at all times by an adult who is responsible for them.
  6. All riders are covered by third party insurance for the duration of the event. The cost of this is included in your entry fee. In additional Wiggle events are covered for public liability.
  7. It is mandatory that all riders wear a safety approved cycling helmet complying with latest EN1078, ANSI Z90/4 or SNELL standards. Any rider not wearing a helmet will not be covered by the event insurance and will be disqualified from the event and could be liable for damages if involved in an accident on that basis. The rider must accept this as a condition of entry. Wiggle reserve the right to refuse entry to the event to anyone with inappropriate equipment or clothing. The participant confirms that the cycle/bike they are riding for the event and all of their equipment is of a suitable standard and state of trail/road worthiness. In particular, the ability to complete longest distance, and over rough terrain dependant on the event.
  8. The participant confirms that the cycle/bike they are riding for the event and all of their equipment is of a suitable standard and state of road/trail worthiness. In particular, the ability to complete longest distance, and over rough terrain dependant on the event.
  9. During the event there will be warning signs at appropriate points on the roads or trails. Absence of these signs does not signal there are no dangers approaching and it is the individual rider’s responsibility to make a decision regarding whether to ride a section or not. The marking of the route does not necessarily indicate that the trail or road is rideable, and the participant is deemed to make their own decision about whether to proceed on bike, foot or not at all.
  10. Any marked route is shown for guidance only and Wiggle do not insist that you use the route shown. Therefore, if the rider chooses to ride a section, it is entirely their own choice. If they choose a different route to avoid obstacles or sections they decide are beyond their capabilities, they do so entirely at their own risk.
  11. You must obey all state highway code rules. You are requested to ride in single file where appropriate and no more than 2 abreast at any time. Please be aware of your fellow cyclists and any other traffic. Please always indicate your intention to stop or change direction. All cyclists must adhere to and obey the state highway code, local By-laws and laws of the UK where applicable and extend all reasonable courtesy to other road and off-road users.
  12. Wiggle reserves the right to shorten or alter the published route at any time. Participants do not have the right to claim a refund if the route is shortened.
  13. Riders must be considerate to other uses of bridleways, tracks and byways when riding off road. Upon seeing other users, such as horse riders and walkers, riders are required to slow down and pass with care. Where appropriate, riders should stop and wait at the side of the route for other uses such as horse riders to pass safely.
  14. Each participant will be fully responsible for any fees or costs incurred or arising from an accident either involving or caused by the rider. This includes, but is not exclusive to, fees from Police, Air Ambulance, Fire and Rescue and the Ambulance service. If the situation arises that you are not capable of making the decision to call the emergency services, the rider agrees that a member of Wiggle or a member of the public may call for them. In this situation, the rider still accepts the costs and consequences of such actions.
  15. Each participant agrees to assign and grant the right and permission for Wiggle to use and publish any photographs/film/video/electronic representations and/or sound recordings of the participant on any Wiggle activity. The participant hereby releases Wiggle from any and all liability from such use and promotion. The participant hereby authorises the reproduction, sale, copyright, exhibit, broadcast, electronic storage and/or distribution of said photographs/film/video tapes/electronic representations and/or sound recordings without limitation at the discretion of Wiggle. The participant specifically waives any right to any compensation they may have for appearing in any of the photographs/film/video/electronic representations and/or sound recordings of the participant at a Wiggle event.
  16. The participants agree to return or call the event centre before the close of the event and report to a member of staff. Not doing so will mean that a search may be organised, and the subsequent cost will be billed to the rider.

  18. Wiggle reserves the right to cancel any event, due to extreme weather conditions. In such an event, each participants entry with be automatically moved to the rescheduled event.

Cut Off Times: Wiggle, its staff, or any third party charged or instructed by Wiggle may introduce cut off times as they see fit as part of the event rules, these being limits on the time taken to complete sections of the event to ensure the safe and proper running of said event. Subsequently, competitors may be instructed to withdraw from the race in accordance with imposed cut off times. I agree that Wiggle is not liable for refunds in full or in part for requiring participants to withdraw from their event before completion of the full distance of the event or sections of the event in the instance of a cut-off time being imposed.
  3. Timing and Results: Wiggle will use its best endeavours to provide an event finish time for the participant. However, it cannot be held responsible for any computer related anomalies or any technical malfunctions related to the accrual of times for individual competitors. I accept and agree that there is no full or partial refund if a finish time is not available to the competitor.
  4. Removal of Participants: Wiggle reserves the right at any time to remove participants from the event or to prevent participants participating in the event if, at the event organiser's sole discretion, the event organiser considers such action necessary for safety reasons or the proper enjoyment of the event by other participants or for any other reasonable reason. No refund of the event fee shall be made if the participant has acted negligently, maliciously, with wilful misconduct or otherwise without due care and attention for the event or other participants, to cause his/her removal.
  5. Medical Treatment: I accept that in the event of my requiring medical attention during the event the medical personnel appointed by the event organiser take no responsibility for the treatment provided for any unreported existing condition which increases the risk of a medical emergency.

  7. Distance and course alterations: I am aware the organiser reserves the right to reduce the course distance, change the course, or make any other amendment to the Event that they deem necessary to stage the Event. Any change to the Event will be communicated to me at the event or sooner if practicable.
  8. Race Format Alterations or Cancellations: Wiggle reserves the right to amend the event format (for example, but not limited to, from a triathlon to a duathlon event, or from a road race to a natural trail race, or in any other instance whereby any race requires a reasonable or exceptional alteration to its format to assist facilitation of said race as judged by the race organiser) or cancel the event due to circumstances beyond its reasonable control or for any safety related reason. In the event of the event being cancelled or moved to a different date and you are not able to make the new date, this event is protected with Event Protect, who will process your refund claim. Accordingly, I agree to comply with all event rules and all instructions and guidelines given by race crew, stewards, marshals, and safety personnel.
