3.3 Subject to clause 9 You may change Your Booking after receiving the Booking Confirmation before The Challenge begins.  CC will use all reasonable endeavours to accommodate any requested changes but cannot guarantee that CC will be able to do so.  If doing so means that CC will incur higher costs, CC will inform You and ask how You wish to proceed before taking any action.  CC will not charge You a higher Price without Your agreement.

4. Price and Payment

4.1 The Price of the Challenge will be calculated in accordance with CC’s price list in place at the time of Your Booking.

4.2 CC’s prices may change at any time but these changes will not affect Bookings that CC has already received.

4.3 Single supplement fees may be associated with your challenge if you are taking part on your own and there is not another participant of the same sex to share with. Please check the event page on our website or contact us if this applies to you.

4.4 Multiple day events require a Deposit and remaining balance fee, where single day events are subject to a single fee. The value of the fees is dependent upon The Challenge. The Deposit payable by You will be clearly displayed on CC’s website and during the Booking process.

4.5 In certain circumstances, if Your Booking is cancelled before The Challenge begins, The Price will be refunded in full or in part. Please refer to Clause 9 for cancelation conditions.

4.11 Subject to the sole discretion of CC, the provisions of sub-Clause 4.9 may not apply where You have promptly contacted CC to dispute a Booking in good faith. 

4.12 If The Booking is for a private trip with CC, a minimum participant number and price will have been agreed with the lead participant. If the minimum number of participants decreases, the group will still be required to reach the minimum group price. This may therefore affect the individual cost of The Booking.

5. Providing The Challenge

5.1 Subject to the receipt of all payments due, CC will provide The Challenge as specified on CC’s Website.

5.2 CC will make every reasonable effort to provide The Challenge on time (and in accordance with Your Booking).  CC cannot, however, be held responsible for any delays if an event outside of CC’s control occurs.  Please see Clause 8 for events outside of CC’s control.

6. Problems with The Challenge

6.3 CC will not charge You for remedying problems under this Clause 6 where the problems have been caused by CC, any of their agents or employees or sub-contractors or where nobody is at fault.  If CC determines that a problem has been caused by incorrect or incomplete information or items provided by You, or incorrect or incomplete action taken by You, sub-Clause 5.4 will apply.

6.4 When participating in a private group booking, CC and the lead participant of The Challenge may have agreed a target time frame in order to complete The Challenge. If the collective group pace does not meet the minimum agreed pace, CC may be forced to pause, change the itinerary or possibly cancel The Challenge entirely. CC cannot be held responsible for eventualities resulting from the collective pace of the group failing to meet the agreed time frames. No refunds will be made available if such a situation should arise.

6.5 You are responsible for all of Your belongings at all times during The Challenge. You are welcome to leave belongings in any CC vehicle during The Challenge, but You do so at Your own risk.

If belongings cannot be found after the completion of The Challenge, CC shall not be required to reimburse You for any costs of lost items.

6.10 Group safety is a priority to CC during The Challenge, which can be delayed, altered or even cancelled if group safety becomes questionable in the eyes of CC staff.  Uncontrollable factors including dangerous weather conditions could force changes or cancellation of The Challenge. The CC group leaders will have the final say on whether The Challenge should be delayed, altered or stopped if group safety becomes questionable in their eyes. No refunds will be made by CC to You in these circumstances.

6.11 Should unforeseen and uncontrollable traffic congestion result in The Challenge being delayed, altered or stopped, the CC group leaders will have the final say. No refunds will be made by CC to you in this circumstance.

6.12 Except in exceptional circumstances, CC requires that during The Challenge You remain between the front and back CC group leaders. CC cannot be held responsible for Your safety if You choose not to stay in the company of the CC group leaders.
