Is prize withdrawal allowed after an activity to win it has been completed?

I entered in a competition to win certain amount of money if I complete the race or win (come 1st), but when i was finishing I read a poster saying the prize was withdrawn.

Can i claim for it? And how? Are they allowed to withdraw like that? Should they not have communicated at an earlier stage?

Possible English law remedies in these cirumstances might include:

  • a breach of contract claim; and/or
  • a complaint under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regs 2008 or the CAP Code rules on prize promotions.

Whether you actually have any legal rights will depend upon the details.
