I entered a BTA sanctioned Tri a few months ago, which was cancelled a few weeks before it was due to take place. Since then (six weeks ago), the organiser has failed to refund the entry fees of myself and several friends who entered the race. I've chased the organsier by email (didn't respond) and phone call (told me the cheques were going to be sent out that week - three weeks later and still nothing!).
Does the fact that it was an official BTA race, give me any kind of protection (ideally against financial loss) in the event that this clown keeps my money and disappears?
