Terms and Conditions

The March Charge Terms & Conditions of Participation

In consideration of my application for entry into The March Charge being accepted, I accept these terms and conditions of participation in the event, intending to be legally bound for myself and my successors, executors and administrators.

‘The March Charge’ includes not only The March Charge race event, but all other activities relating to The March Charge, whether occurring before, during or after the event, and whether organised by Cancer Council or any other party (including me).

I agree to follow the rules, regulations and instructions of the organisers and Cancer Council.  I understand that vehicles are parked at the owner's risk.  I accept that the organisers and Cancer Council are not responsible for the security of my personal belongings.

I understand that participants under the age of 18 are required to have a parent or guardian read and accept these terms and conditions of entry on their behalf.

Cancer Council reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to refuse your registration in The March Charge or to disqualify you from The March Charge for breach of these terms and conditions or for any other reason Cancer Council determines appropriate.

Physical Risk Notice

The March Charge is an event that involves physical exertion and as such has certain inherent risks associated with the activity. Included in these risks are injury due to slippery or uneven surfaces, obstacles, trip hazards, overcrowding, collision with objects or people and the effects of heat, cold, dehydration and exhaustion. Injuries may include injuries from falls such as broken bones, sprained muscles, injuries to ligaments, cartilage or other soft tissue, blisters, cuts and abrasions. Injuries may also arise from exertion such as heart attacks, fainting and loss of consciousness. If Cancer Council becomes aware that I am undertaking particularly risky or dangerous activity as part of The March Charge it may request that I refrain from that activity and I agree that will comply with that request or have my entry into The March Charge cancelled.  I acknowledge that Cancer Council has not undertaken an assessment of my ability to participate.

I understand that I may be at greater risk of illness or injury if I suffer an ongoing medical condition or a poor standard of health or fitness, or if I have pre-existing injuries. I understand that Cancer Council recommends that I consult a doctor particularly if I have ever experienced a heart condition, stroke, unexplained chest pains, faintness, dizziness, shortness of breath, severe asthma, diabetes, muscle, joint or bone problems or any other medical conditions that may make it dangerous for me to participate in physical activity and/or if I am in any doubt as to my fitness and whether to participate.

Regardless of whether I have consulted a doctor, I agree that by participating in The March Charge, I do so entirely at my own risk. I verify that I am in proper physical and mental condition to participate in The March Charge and acknowledge that I am aware of the risks involved and voluntarily agree to assume those risks.

I understand that Cancer Council has obtained no personal accident insurance covering my participation in The March Charge.

Waiver and indemnity

I fully and irrevocably exclude Cancer Council and The March Charge sponsors (individually and collectively), including their directors, officers, staff, volunteers and representatives, from all liability (whether in negligence, contract, under statute or otherwise) suffered by me as a consequence of my involvement in The March Charge, including in relation to death and personal injury.

I fully and irrevocably indemnify, and at all times hereafter keep indemnified, Cancer Council, and The March Charge sponsors (individually and collectively), including their directors, officers, staff, volunteers and representatives, from any liability (including for consequential loss, loss of profits and legal costs on a full indemnity basis) to any third party or other participant in The March Charge arising from my participation in The March Charge or as a direct or indirect result of any act or omission by me.

Cancer Council’s liability

I understand and agree that to the maximum extent permitted by law:

  • Cancer Council excludes all conditions, warranties, guarantees, rights, remedies, liabilities or other terms implied or conferred by statute, custom, or the general law that impose any liability or obligation on Cancer Council (including consumer guarantees to the extent such exclusions are permitted in contracts relating to the supply of recreational services);
  • Cancer Council excludes all liability to me or any third party in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise for any loss, damage, cost or expense of any kind (including direct, indirect or consequential losses, damages, costs and expenses) suffered or incurred by me or any third person in connection with the website or The March Charge; and
  • where Cancer Council is unable to exclude liability, its liability to me is limited (at its option) to resupplying, repairing or replacing the service or the payment of the cost of supplying the service to me again.

If any provision in these terms and conditions is unenforceable, illegal or void, then the parties agree that the provision must be read down the minimum necessary to allow it to be enforceable whilst preserving as close as is possible the purpose of the provision.  If the provision cannot be read down, it is severed and the rest of this document remains in force.


I understand that The March Charge is a personal challenge event whereby I nominate how many kilometres I will run or walk during March. The March Charge is not a race. However, while there are no ‘winners’, the leader board on the website will display the names of participants who have run the furthest. I acknowledge that I am responsible for tracking my Kilometres and updating my personal fundraising page.

Information (where applicable) is not intended as medical advice, and should not be relied upon as a substitute for consultations with qualified health professionals who can determine an individual's health needs.
