Participation

Before you begin your month of getting active for RED January in partnership with Mind, please read the following:

 

Health and Safety

RED January is open to participants of all backgrounds and we do our best to make RED as accessible and inclusive to all as possible. Nevertheless, due to the physically challenging nature of getting active every day in January, if you have any medical problem or disability which may affect your involvement in RED we would recommend that you seek guidance from your medical practitioner before taking part.

RED January participants must be a minimum of 18 years old on the 1 January 2019 and be in suitable physical condition to undertake the challenge. RED January participants should be fully aware of the possible risks inherent in getting active every day, and take rests where necessary to avoid injury. RED January participants under the age of 18 are welcome to participate in RED January, with the agreement of, and when accompanied by their parent or guardian.

In completing your registration to RED January, you understand fully that you are taking part in RED January at entirely your own risk The whole philosophy of RED January is to get active every day, your way, and the level of activity which is carried out every day is your own choice and risk. Any suggested physical activities given for RED January must therefore be taken as an indication of what activity may be achieved each day and not as an obligation of registration on our part.

 

RED January materials and t-shirts

In exceptional and unavoidable circumstances there may be a delay in receiving your RED January materials and/or RED January t-shirt. This may occur in the rare case where a third party supplier has incurred delays in their delivery process. We will do all we can to resolve any such issues as soon as possible and let you know of the revised deadline for when you will receive materials at the earliest possible opportunity. In the unlikely event that t-shirt stock has run out and we are unable to fulfil your purchased t-shirt order, a full refund will be issued. RED January t-shirt stock is issued on a first come first served basis, and as such you may not be able to purchase a t-shirt in your desired size and may not be able to receive RED January trainer laces; the materials still available will be highlighted to you at the point of registration.
