In order to register for an event we host, an individual is required to give contact information such as name, address, birthdate, phone number, and email address, as well as other information about him or her, including, but not limited to age, sex, qualifying mark(s), etc. We use this information to contact the registrants about the event and also future club organised race events and other club correspondence. Event Registration is generally completed via a 3rd party.

Only members of the Committee have access to your personal information.
We will never divulge your contact details (such as email address, telephone numbers, or home address) to any other party, other than the HXR Committee, without your prior consent.
