THE FINE PRINT

Jodi Lee Foundation are the event organisers of The JLF Trek South Australia 2019. If we deem the route unsafe (due to but not limited to heavy rain, lightning, high winds, bushfire or ‘acts of god’) we may, at our sole discretion, re-route The JLF Trek, find an alternative shortened course, or cancel the event. If the event is cancelled, re-routed or shortened, no refund of registration fees, fundraising monies or transfer to another JLF Trek event will be made. Due to the nature of our events and the months of preparation involved, the event will not be re-scheduled to any other weekend. We also reserve the right to change the route or checkpoint locations or distances as necessary. Any changes will be communicated to participants prior to the event. Car parking will be advised closer to the event date. Entry permitted to ages 14 and over (participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times).
