FAQ
custom virtual race for non-profit
How quickly can I set up a virtual race?
The entire process can take place in as little as 1 week! Typically from the date your mock-ups are approved, our team has your registration page live on our site within 1-2 weeks.
Can I make a free race for participants?
efinitely! You can pre-pay for a discount code applied at checkout to zero out the price of your race. We can add additional redemptions as needed, so you only pay for what you need.
Does my race have to be a single day?
No. You race can span a weekend or even an entire month! The duration of your race is up to you. Give participants the opportunity to run when they want, where they want. By having your event span across multiple days, you enable a greater turn-out for your event.
What if I don’t have a logo for my race swag?
No problem! Our graphic designers can help you create the perfect logo for your race swag for a small art fee. Tell us what you have in mind and let our designers harness their creativity to create your perfect race logo.
When should I begin marketing my race?
Now! The earlier you start marketing your race, the larger audience you will reach. Typically we recommend having your registration open for at least 2 weeks before your race. Having your race registration open for 4 to 6 weeks prior to your race is ideal though.
How do I determine my race profit?
Calculating your race profit is simple. Your race profit per participant is the difference between the race price you set and the cost of your race swag. PROFIT PER PARTICIPANT = RACE PRICE — SWAG PRICE
How do I know how many participants have signed up for my race?
We can get this number for you at any time! Race registration counts are updated each morning, so we have an updated registration count every day.
Once a participant registers, when will they receive their race package?
Once a participant registers for your race, their order is fulfilled within 1-3 business days and shipped via USPS.
How do I market my race?
Marketing your race is up to you. Our graphic designers will provide you with an image of your race swag that you are welcome to use to help promote your race! Social media is a great option to promote your race, and you can even encourage participants to share their race experience with a unique race hashtag or #GoneForaRunVirtualRaceSeries
Is there a way people can make a donation to my organization?
While we cannot accept donations directly on our site, we are happy to include a link on your registration page! Simply provide a URL to your donation site, and we will gladly add it to your race description.
Looking for peer-to-peer fundraising?
You've asked and we've listened! While we do not offer this function today, our developers are eagerly working on preparing a peer-to-peer fundraising feature for our custom virtual races. Stay tuned!
