What happens if myself or one of the members of my team pay the registration fee but cannot raise the minimum fundraising amount?

We strongly encourage that all participants to do all they can to reach the minimum fundraising amount. This is to ensure the event reaches its fundraising goals to fund the vital projects which help homeless youth. However, we wouldn’t stop the registrant from participating on the day if they really wanted to.

If you need help reaching your fundraising target, please see the resources page for tips and tricks.  

Can the money be raised collectively per team, rather than individually to ensure all participants reach their minimum fundraising amount? 

If the team wanted all the funds to go to one participant, but for this one participant's fundraising to count towards the whole team that would be acceptable.

Is there a prize for bringing in the most fundraising?

To acknowledge those who raise the top amounts to help rebuild young lives, we will be awarding exclusive champion jerseys and prizes to the highest fundraisers. We'll be giving you further details closer to the event.

How can I donate to a rider, runner or walker?

To donate to a participant or team, please click on donate and search for the relevant participant or team.

What happens in the case of Covid-19-related restrictions?

We take the risks of COVID-19 very seriously and are in continual contact with authorities about the conduct of events. While we hope we will be able to stage the Tour de PIF Series, we know and understand that there remains a degree of uncertainty around how we will all travelling by the respective event dates.

Accordingly, we are continuing to work on organising the Tour de PIF Series and are committed to giving you some certainty and confidence around what will happen if we are unable to proceed. To that end, just as many other events have, we have enacted a COVID-19 policy.

If the event is not able to proceed due to ongoing restrictions, all attendees will automatically have their registrations transferred to the later-in-2021 editions of the events, or a refund if that is preferred. Please note that a refund will be the registration fee paid at registration, minus a $20 administration fee. Donations generously made to PIF will not be refunded.

We will make the process as simple and as speedy as possible should we be forced to postpone any of the Tour de PIF Series 2021 events. Our aim is a simple and transparent process that gives you confidence in what happens and lets us all start planning and training for the event.

What happens in the event of bad weather?

We would hope to go ahead with the event if there was light rain. However in the event of inclement weather or any other factor affecting participant safety, the Property Industry Foundation, and the orhanisers, have the right to cancel the event to maintain participant safety. Any cancellation or changes to the event will be communicated in advance.

Should the weather prevent activity participation, guests will still be encouraged to attend the lunch (to be held undercover).
