GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS: ALL PARTICIPANTS OF THE RESPECTIVE LION'S RUN ARE OBLIGATED TO ACKNOWLEDGE THESE T&Cs!
By ticking the appropriate box, you agree to the terms and conditions contained herein and confirm your compliance with them.
Attention: The registration is considered an offer, which we submit to our customers. In order to finally and bindingly confirm your participation, the payment of the total price is due within 14 calendar days after receipt of our respective invoice. Your booking will only be confirmed after we have received this deposit in one of our bank accounts. If our invoice has not been paid within the aforementioned payment period, this shall be deemed a cancellation by the participant, requiring no further confirmation by the participant or us. In this case, we reserve the right to cancel the participation and to pass on the participant's spot.
The minimum booking is two persons per vehicle. A driver team must consist of two persons, driver and co-driver. No single participations will be offered. Exceptions to this require consultation with us and our approval. If a driver wants to participate with his vehicle and without co-driver, then this is possible after consultation with us, provided that the full participation price is paid per car.
- General Information
Lion's Run is a lifestyle event and NOT a race! The individual participants are never in competition or comparing speeds, starting positions or rankings. All participants are banned from betting on all things related to the Lion's Run. We attach great importance to a safety-oriented driving style and consideration of each other, as well as to all other road users, regardless of whether they are motorized or not.
Anyone who participates in the Lion's Run and is observed violating these basic rules or is reported with evidence of such violations by participants or third parties will be excluded with immediate effect from further participation in the current events, the excluded team or vehicle will not be entitled to a refund of any services not used or any other claim for reimbursement. We expect all our participants to be more perceptive and aware of dangers and to behave politely and considerately towards all participants and third parties.
- Laws, Rules, Regulations
Not only, but especially during participation in our tours, all participants must comply with all applicable laws, rules, regulations and tacit agreements of the host country. This includes, but is not limited to, compliance with speed limits, compliance with all technical requirements relating to the registration and operation of the vehicle, compliance with all regulations relating to insurance and registration of the vehicle; compliance with all regulations and laws relating to the driver's licence and its validity, and compliance with all laws, rules and regulations relating to the possession or transportation of alcoholic beverages, drugs, dangerous articles, pyrotechnics, weapons or other prohibited articles or substances.
The management of Lion's Run, represented by its owner(s) and the managing director, has the right to exclude the respective participating team and the associated vehicle from further participation at any time if a violation of one of the above rules becomes known, without the excluded team or vehicle being entitled to a refund of any services not used or any other claim for reimbursement. Lion's Run and its members, employees, agents, staff, consultants, partners and attorneys do not assume any responsibility or liability whatsoever for any actions or omissions made while participating in the respective tour. They are not liable to any participant or third party and cannot be accused, charged, prosecuted or indicted. This also applies to inappropriate or harmful behaviour at any (event) locations, fuel stops, events, establishments, side events, localities, public and private streets, squares and venues that take place during the tour and/or are visited as part of the overall tour. In particular, hotels and other accommodation facilities are explicitly included in this regulation.
Each participant is obliged to drive or move a motorised or non-motorised vehicle only in an absolutely sober state during the entire tour. The consumption of alcohol or other intoxicating substances before or during the driving of a vehicle is strictly prohibited, this includes medication that impairs the ability to drive or could cause inability to drive.
Entrants must waive all claims, actions or causes of action of any kind whatsoever against LION'S RUN personnel arising from the Tour and raised by any third party as a result of any act, omission or participation of any Entrant, including but not limited to Entrants in violation of any law, regulation or rule of the relevant country, state, county or city/municipality, or the terms and conditions contained therein.
LION'S RUN Staff will not be responsible if it is unable to perform its obligations due to fire, earthquake, epidemic, cyclone, flood, drought, strike, lightning, revolution, terrorist activity or any other case of force majeure or similar problems. LION'S RUN Staff reserves the right to refuse or cancel participation in the Tour at any time for any of the above-mentioned reasons or for any other important reason or violation of the rules not specified. In case of cancellation of the tour or refusal to allow the participant to participate, no refund of the (pro rata) participation fee will be made. The burden of proof for this does not lie with Lion's Run or its employees / staff / representatives.
- All participants in the Lion's Run must be at least eighteen (18) years of age. Minors may not participate even with the permission of their parents or guardians.
- Registration(s) and Insurance(s)
All participants must, if they drive a vehicle, be in possession of an unrestricted valid driving licence and a valid identification document, which enables an unambiguous identification. The co-drivers may participate without the above-mentioned driving licence after notification to and consultation with the Lion's Run Team, but the above-mentioned rules regarding the identity document also apply here.
For the compliance with these regulations only the participants themselves are responsible.
All participants are furthermore obliged to ensure that their vehicle is insured at all times during their participation in the tour with sufficient motor vehicle and liability insurance against third parties.
The participants are responsible for ensuring that the vehicles used for the event are properly approved in all countries listed in the itinerary and insured for use on public roads, motorways, ferries, car trains and all other situations that may arise. They must buy and hold adequate vehicle insurance to cover their participation in the Event and, at the request of the Promoter, must prove this insurance in a manner satisfactory to the Promoter on the day of registration for the event. This may be a consignment note or proof of insurance. Appropriate insurance includes, but is not limited to, minimum liability insurance, health insurance and liability insurance, and in any event you must notify your insurers that you are attending the event. The participation insurance is the sole responsibility of the participants.
- In general, participation in the Tour is open to all models, makes and years of manufacture of vehicles. The majority of LION'S RUN vehicles, however, are found in the "Luxury", "Sports" and "Classic & Exotic" automotive niches. We attach great importance to a diverse and unique range of high-end vehicles. The Lion's Run team will decide on a case-by-case basis whether a participation with the desired vehicle is permitted after prior consultation.
- The participant agrees that the LION'S RUN logo and all other foils specified by LION'S RUN staff and usually sent to participants prior to participation, including official sponsors, will be visibly affixed throughout the tour in the designated positions and according to the foliation concept of the Lion's Run and consequently attached to the participant's vehicle. The participant is solely responsible for the correct application of these logo foils. The participant may not conceal or alter such logos and must keep them clean and clearly visible at all times during the tour. Our foils can be easily removed without damaging the vehicle paint. LION'S RUN Staff will therefore not be liable for any damage to the vehicle paint that may result from the application or removal of such 'foils'.
In addition to the obligatory foils mentioned and illustrated in the foiling concept, each participating team is free to apply a maximum of one foil with advertising for its own company. This can be done after consultation with the Lion's Run team and the explicit written approval of the Lion's Run team. Of course, foils which depict political or offensive texts or pictures which go against good manners or taste and foils which advertise a company which is in direct or indirect competition with Lion's Run or one of its sponsors cannot be approved and thus applied.
- Participation fee: After registration on our website and approval of the registration by Lion's Run, each participating team receives an invoice for the planned participation.
The participation fee does not include the following services:
Vehicle costs, in particular fuel, tolls, parking fees (except in the hotels), penalties for traffic violations, costs for the use of the minibar in the hotel room, telephone, VoD, room service in the respective hotels, food and drink.
The participation fee is to be paid to the account of Lion's Run GmbH & Co. KG until the date stated on the invoice.
Withdrawal: The participant may withdraw from participating at any time before the start of the tour. In this case, Lion's Run will charge a reasonable lump sum for expenses and processing as follows:
In case of cancellation 89 - 60 days before the start of the tour: 25% of the participation fee
In case of cancellation 59 - 30 days before the start of the tour: 40% of the participation fee
In case of cancellation 29 - 10 days before the start of the tour: 70% of the participation fee
If case of cancellation less than 10 days before the start of the tour: 100% of the participation fee
The compensation was calculated taking into account the usual costs of these postings.
Travel cancellation insurance: If necessary, our partner Klugversichert GmbH, Munich, offers an additional, specially calculated travel cancellation insurance at reduced prices:

The fees due must be paid in full by the due date indicated on the invoice. Any balances received after the due date will be considered as late payments. In this case, Lion's Run reserves the right to cancel the respective invoice and disqualify the team. After the tour has started, Lion's Run GmbH & Co KG will NOT refund the entry fee and will not compensate you if you are unable to participate in the tour for any reason whatsoever.
Although all vehicles have enough time to reach any destination, the route of the tour is challenging. Should the participant not be able to complete part of the route and is not able to arrive at the specified places, stay overnight, etc., in time the participant will NOT be entitled to a refund of the participation fee. Any accompanying vehicles will pay the same entry fee as a normal participant. Any person bringing additional participants or vehicles without notifying LION'S RUN with sufficient notice prior to the start of the event will be disqualified from the event without refund of any participation fee or part thereof. The attachment of stickers is not mandatory for escort vehicles, but LION'S RUN will provide a sticker set for them if possible.
Accompanying every tour are evening events, not at all destinations, but in most cities. At these evening events the participants can meet each other and talk about their experiences. Of course, the participants are not obliged to participate in these events or to drink alcohol. This is of course left to the discretion of each participant. They must carry a valid identity document which makes it possible to establish their identity without any doubt at all events; a driving licence or passport is generally considered sufficient. At all events, they must dress appropriately, i.e. wear shoes, shirts and, if necessary, a jacket or suit as agreed. For female participants, the corresponding dress code applies. At all LION'S RUN events, shorts or inappropriate footwear ( sandals, bathing shoes, etc.) may not be worn. If you arrive inadequately dressed, you may be turned away from the venue and may not be allowed in. Responsibility for complying with these rules rests solely with the participant and in no event with Lion's Run or its employees or agents.
- Rights to your image and portrayal of your own personality
The participant hereby consents to the production and publication of photos and videos, i.e. image and sound recordings including live stream sequences, during the entire Lion's Run - Summer Edition South 2018 - by the LION'S RUN photo and film team as well as by third parties (press, media, Lion's Run contractual partners, tourism centres, etc.). The participant is aware that he will not get paid for any publication of audio and visual material. The participant gives his irrevocable consent to Lion's Run GmbH & Co KG, especially after the LION'S RUN. Consent shall be granted for image and sound recordings in physical, i.e. printed, and any digital form. Lion's Run GmbH & Co KG shall not be liable for third parties reproducing, storing or otherwise using modified or unmodified image and sound recordings without the knowledge of Lion's Run GmbH & Co KG.
All participants must agree and consent to be photographed and included in the recording of film material documenting the event. You therefore waive any publicity and data protection rights and grant the organizer and LION'S RUN GmbH & Co. KG unrestricted permission to use your appearance for the event in any form and in any media and throughout the world on a permanent basis. You further agree that the Promoter and LION'S RUN GmbH & Co. KG have the sole right to utilize or use any photographs or footage in which the Participants appear and that the Promoter or LION'S RUN GmbH & Co. KG may utilize such photographs or footage and may edit them at the Promoter's or LION'S RUN GmbH & Co. KG's sole discretion. You agree that your name, image, likeness, voice and biographical material may be used in connection with any material, advertising material and related promotional material and for all advertising and promotional purposes. You expressly waive any claims concerning the violation of privacy, defamation or any other cause that you have or may have against LION'S RUN GmbH & Co KG and its employees, consultants, licensees and assigns. This applies to the production, distribution, broadcast or exhibition of photographs, film material or advertising material. All participants are only entitled to take photographs and film footage of their participation in the event for non-commercial purposes and for personal and private use only. You are not entitled to reproduce or use photos or film material of the event on a website, in print media or in a television programme without the prior written consent of the organiser, LION'S RUN GmbH & Co. KG. Participants hereby agree to transfer to LION'S RUN GmbH & Co KG (through the present cession of future copyrights) all of their rights, title and interest in worldwide copyright and all intellectual property rights to such photographs or footage permanently and together with exclusive worldwide rights of use.

In addition, participants fully understand that participation in the Tour may result in serious injury and/or death of the participant, co-driver or other persons. The participants acknowledge and understand that the route of the Tour will follow public roads on which a risk is to be expected through participation and driving itself. The participants have also understood that participation in the tour can be a strenuous physical activity and requires good health and physical condition, as the participants go on tour for a very long time. The participants are also fully aware of the danger of having to drive in unfavourable weather conditions and they confirm this with their signature.
- ACCEPTANCE OF RISKS
With full recognition and understanding of the risks associated with participating in the Tour, Participants voluntarily book the Tour and accept all possible risks of loss, damage or injury (including their own death or the death of involved or uninvolved third parties). Before participation, all participants have been adequately informed of the rules and regulations and possible hazards, damages or disadvantages by means of this document, the knowledge and acceptance of which is an obligatory part of the registration, and confirm this by ticking the appropriate box.
- Acceptance of all terms and conditions of participation:
The participant or the participating team undertakes to comply with all terms and conditions of the tour. The Participant acknowledges and understands that Lion's Run staff and authorized Lion's Run personnel will make reasonable efforts to ensure that all other Participants comply with the Terms and Conditions, but that they cannot guarantee that all Participants comply with these Terms and Conditions.
- WAIVER OF LIABILITY / DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY
In order to take part in the Tour, the heirs, executors, administrators and legal representatives of the participants waive all rights and/or claims that the participant may have against Lion's Run GmbH & Co KG. Entrants or their vehicle will waive the imdenity of Lion's Run GmbH & Co KG and its officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents and travel sponsors for any damages, injuries (including death) and / or claims that Participants may make directly or indirectly as a result of Participant's participation in the Tour, including the use of emergency or medical services during the Tour, even if such damages, injuries (including death) and / or claims are due to the negligence of the above persons. The above or any other provision not included in these Terms and Conditions shall be construed to exclude or limit the liability of Lion's Run GmbH & Co KG and its employees for personal injury or death resulting from its violation. In addition, the participant agrees not to sue the LION'S RUN Staff (and its officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents) and Tour Sponsors for any damages, injuries (including death) and/or claims resulting from the participant's direct or indirect participation in the Tour. This release and dismissal shall include, but is not limited to, claims for personal injury, death, property damage, economic loss and breach of contract, loss of wages, contribution compensation, indemnification, punitive damages, negligence or other legally enforceable claims arising out of Participant's participation in the Tour (including all legal costs associated with such claims).
- Exemption from liability
Participants agree to indemnify and waive any and all claims, demands and damages against LION'S RUN personnel (and their officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents), tour sponsors and licensees. This includes any claim, obligation or action arising directly or indirectly from the participant's actions or otherwise from the participant's participation in the Tour, whether made or claimed during or after the Tour, including all related costs and expenses and any sums that the LION'S RUN Staff may assume as a settlement or compromise of such claims or obligations on a case-by-case basis.
- The entry fee for the LION'S RUN Tour does NOT include any personal purchases, fuel bills, telephone bills or other expenses or expenses incurred during your stay at the hotel, on the Tour, at visited event locations, on ferries, buses or trains, or on the Auto Train, fines of any kind, or damages caused at the visited locations for which the participant may be responsible. All incidental expenses not listed on our participation invoice are naturally covered by this clause.
- Lion's Run GmbH & Co. KG explicitly prohibits the participation of persons who organise tours or similar events or intend to do so or cooperate with third parties for this purpose. If a participant supports a competitor, who tries to replicate this tour or its unique features, activities and components, or who wants to exploit the branding or goodwill of the organizer in any way, fiancially, organizationally or has invested in it, the organizer will immediately be excluded from participation in the (further) tour. In addition, the Promoter, Lion's Run GmbH & Co. KG, will take legal action against the person responsible.
- During the entire Lion's Run event and on the day before and the day after tour start/end, the sponsor stickers sent to participants in advance must be affixed to the participating vehicles in accordance with the foliation concept.
The foliation concept will be sent to participants by mail or e-mail before the event begins; it can also be viewed and downloaded at any time from the Lion's Run website in the Members Area.
Pictures of all participating vehicles will be published on our team page for the respective tour.
The participants are responsible for ensuring that the stickers are visible, recognizable and not covered during the entire tour, as well as on the day before and the day after the tour. All our stickers are easy to remove and do not cause any damage to the participant's vehicle.
Therefore, Lion's Run GmbH & Co KG will not be responsible under any circumstances for any damage to the vehicle or other items that may occur during the application or removal of the stickers, regardless of who has applied or removed the stickers.
If during the event not all foil stickers or only parts of them are visible on the respective vehicle, or if the branding is removed prematurely from the participating vehicle, the driver and all other passengers of the respective car will be immediately excluded from the tour and the remaining days of the tour will be cancelled for this team without compensation. This will of course be done without any claim for compensation or payment for the remainder of the Tour or any part of it that has not been used.
