  13. A marathon registration process can be lengthy.
    1. We aim to create the best possible experience for our participants.
    2. First in, first confirmed is therefore not one of our main criteria. We take into consideration a lot of things instead, like being local or long travelling, early or late registration, average age distribution of participants, dance experience and style, regular or new visitors, gender balancing, single or couple registrations, hobby or professional dancers, to name a few. We therefore appreciate any additional information you give us with your registration.
    3. We would LOVE to send confirmations only, but sadly that’s not possible. If you prefer a hassle free participation we recommend to attend our regular open events.

  14. Registration process:
    1. Fill in the registration form. If you’re registering as a couple, each partner has to fill in the form separately and name the other as his/her partner.
    2. We are going to reply within 14 days either confirming your registration or asking you if we should keep your registration on file. We might be able to confirm it later on.
    3. With confirmation of your registration request payment details will be given allowing 14 days time to issue the payment. We will not send reminders. Your spot may be lost and given away if your payment is not received within 14 days. Payments prior to our notification can not be accepted.
    4. Please take care of possible transfer fees. Any money transaction fees have to be paid in addition to the full-pass price. (SEPA transfers from Switzerland will cause ~12,- EUR fees)
    5. If a bank transfer is difficult for you, we accept payment via Paypal, or in cash at the check-in desk (please get in touch with us beforehand)
    6. Payments for couples – registrations with a partner – should be done as a single transaction. If that is impossible for you, then independent payments are fine as well.
    7. Confirmation of participation can be sent only when the payment for both participants has been received in full.
    8. Having received the transfer in full and in time your participation will be confirmed.

  15. There is no claim for refund for booked marathon places.
    1. note that places are personal and cannot be transferred to other persons without prior consent of the organisers, or be used by different persons for different parts of the event.
    2. in case of emergencies a refund request can be submitted until one month before the event.
    3. within two weeks before the event we are not able to process any requests for refund or change of partners any more. Therefore no refund or change of partners are possible.

  16. By registering to this event you accept the ‘house rules’ of the event venue. In case of dangerous, disrespectful or disturbing behaviour the organization reserves the right to suspend the participation.

  17. If you have any further questions which are not covered above, get in touch with us by writing an e-mail to contact@viennatangomarathon.com. Please mind that we don’t support phone, SMS, Facebook, Messenger or Whatsapp communication regarding the registration process.
