About Our Events

Aim of Skidaddle Events

Skidaddle events aim to increase opportunities for participation in outdoor sports.

Our events are focussed around respectful use of natural environments and making the great outdoors more accessible to more people.

Our events provide social opportunities as well as opportunities for personal challenge and achievement and whether participating as a volunteer or a participant our events can be a life changing experience.

 

Prices – The cost of events

Skidaddle aims to keep the cost of events as low as possible.  If the event entry fee creates a barrier which stops you from participating please get in touch with us.

It can sometimes be hard to see where your money is going and why events cost money in the first place.  Some people expect to receive free goodies galore at every event even when the entry price is minimal.  Here are just some of the costs that event organisers are faced with…

  • Hours and hours and hours of organisation – much of our work is voluntary but even event organisers have bills to pay.
  • Land access permissions – Some land owners charge an administration or access permission fee and some events can involve multiple land owners.
  • Event Insurance
  • Volunteer Recruitment
  • Marketing costs
  • Travel and Transport – route recce, course signage, etc.
  • Transport for participants
  • Event Equipment – First aid kits, signage, gazebos, gantries, tables, chairs, timing systems, runners numbers, safety pins, starter guns, stationary…etc.
  • Phone Bills
  • Internet bills
  • Website hosting and support
  • Food and drink
  • Prizes and medals
  • And much more

 

Prizes and Goodies

For most events medals will be awarded to overall Bronze, Silver and Gold winners in each distance in both male and female categories.  

Age category medals will be available to order from Skidaddle after the event at a cost of £5/medal.

Finisher’s medals and event mugs can be purchased through the ticket purchase system and will be available for collection at the finish-line.  

Some may be available for purchase on the day but are subject to availability.  

Skidaddle will endeavour to provide event momentums where possible but in order to keep the event charge to a minimum these may incur an additional charge.
