PHOTOGRAPHY & FILMING (by Seaford/Newhaven and Peacehaven Lions)

This event takes place entirely in areas deemed as ‘public places’ and as such, any video/pictures taken in this context are permitted under UK law. The purpose of this note is not to analyse or educate on the understanding of where the use of a camera may be deemed as inappropriate (ie: harassment), but rather the “confirmation of consent” given to the organiser for photography and video filming taken during the event which may be used for future advertising and/or marketing/promotional purposes and a selection of which may also be published on the NPS Lions website.


Guardians/parents applying for participants whose age is below 18 years at the time of application must be aware of the following: For junior participants whose age is below 18 years at the time of application, a higher duty of care exists and is maintained for the participant as the responsibility at that time of the person performing the transaction to complete the entry process. By definition, the card holder is 18 years or older and assumes the principle guardianship responsibility of consent and evaluation of suitability for participation from their knowledge of the individual.

This will include an understanding and implications of the health and endurance requirements to participate in this event, and an appreciation of an event’s race practices and course. It is expected that, for these situations, the card holder adds their detail prior to submitting the completed web application form. This does not infer that the duty of care remains wholly with the person conducting the transaction, but rather in their compelling judgment and responsibility in this issue. Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult throughout the entire course.
