General terms and conditions

§ 1 Registration - Registration fee - Terms of payment - Refund

(1) Registration is only possible via online registration using the corresponding web form on the Internet. Online registration will only be processed by our partner Mika timing using the registration tool. Registrations by fax or other e-mail registrations will not be accepted. When registering online, the participant will receive an e-mail confirmation to check their personal data following successful registration.

(2) A registration fee will be charged for the administrative effort associated with the registration process. Payment can only be made via direct debit. Payment of the registration fee is due upon completion of the online registration for payment - exclusively by direct debit. Payment shall only be made by invoice only for collective registrations for corporate groups. A registration process for which no registration fee has been paid cannot be registered as a pre-registration. If the debit fails, e.g. because there is not enough money in the specified account, the bank details have been provided incorrectly or the participant cancels the direct debit authorization, the bank will charge a processing fee in the amount of €6.00, which must then be reimbursed by the participant, at the latest when receiving the starting documents (then paid in cash).

(3) If participants do not report to the start or declare to the organizer that they will not participate without stating reasons, the entry fee is non-refundable. The organizer reserves the right to refund the entry fee in the event of proof of inability to participate due to for important medical reasons.

(4) In the case of rebooking to a less expensive event, participants will not receive a refund for any resulting price differences. In the case of rebooking to a more expensive event, the additional costs/difference amount for the more expensive discipline must be paid accordingly. In addition, a handling fee of € 5.00 will be charged.

(5) Participants can enter a replacement participant for a processing fee of €5.00.

(1) If, in the event of force majeure, the organizer is entitled, or due to official order or for safety reasons obligated to make changes to or cancel the event, the organizer will not be liable for damages vis-à-vis the participants. The registration fee already paid to cover the actual administrative costs will lapse in this case and is not subject to reimbursement. Force majeure shall include, but not be limited to, war, warlike condition, riot, strikes, lawful lockouts, shortage of power or raw materials, revolution, rebellion, military or civil coup, terror, reactor accidents, riots, embargo, epidemics, pandemics such as COVID-19, fire, hurricane, governmental ORDERS or other inclement weather on a catastrophic scale, and natural events such as earthquake and landslide.

(2) The organizer, its representatives and agents are not liable for damage or injuries of any kind caused by participation in the ebm‑papst marathon and the accompanying events. The German Road Traffic Licensing Regulation (StVO) applies along the entire route. This also applies to sponsors and owners of private roads and their representatives.

It is the participant's responsibility to maintain sufficient insurance coverage for medical treatment. Without prejudice to the foregoing cases of liability for damages on the part of the organizers, any liability on the part of the organizers for medical treatment costs (including related costs, such as for transport and care) is excluded.

Legally binding declarations can only be made to the participants by the organizer's authorized persons. This group of persons also includes members of the medical services supervising the event, who may also prohibit the participant's participation or continuation of participation in the event of corresponding health indications for the participant's protection.

Particularly when waiting in line, participants must observe the distance requirement (minimum distance of 1.5 m) and regulations in compliance with a hygiene concept and the AHA rules (insofar as this was ordered at the start of the event and, if necessary, indicated by a separate notice).

If a user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can detect that the user has clicked the advertisement and has been re-directed to this page. Every Google Ads customer is given a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of Ads customers. The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookie is used to produce conversion statistics for Ads customers who have decided to use conversion tracking. The customers are informed of the total number of users who have clicked their advertisement and been re-directed to a page provided with a conversion tracking tag. They do not however receive any information with which users can be personally identified.
