Effective 01/23/2018 5:33pm EST

The purpose of this agreement is to define the terms between RunSignUp and partners who will manage multiple races or who have a large race. To begin the enrollment process to become a Partner, you will submit a complete Partner Program application via our Website. We will evaluate your application and notify you of your acceptance or rejection. We may reject your application for any reason or no reason in our sole discretion.

This Agreement is entered into between RunSignUp, Inc., a Delaware corporation doing business as RunSignUp, ("RunSignUp" or "we" or "us"), and ("you" or "your"). RunSignUp agrees to provide you partner services for your Race(s), subject to the following terms and conditions:

  1. Services. We will provide you with partner services (the "Services") in connection with your Races through our website located at (the "Website"). Those Services will include a free partner website, cross-race management, multi-level access and control of races, enhanced payment reporting and other partner features and benefits that we will define.
  2. You will provide a list of races that you manage and will use and actively promote our online signup services. You will provide first level support for any races that you manage including questions on race set up and other support issues.
  3. Partner Revenue Share — Upon approval from us on a per race basis you will earn a revenue share percentage of our standard processing fees for all participants for the event who use RunSignUp for registration and who come directly to your site or to RunSignUp. If the participant is directed to RunSignUp from an Affiliate such as, then the partner revenue share is reduced by 5% for those registrations. Partner revenue share will be paid weekly if the amount owed is $200 or more, otherwise payments will be monthly. Partner revenue share may be reduced or eliminated if you do not achieve the minimum volume targets of the RunSignUp partner program. Partner revenue share is earned at the volumes as defined as follows:
Minimum Paid
Annual Paid Registration
Volume in Dollars
Partner Revenue Share
5,000 $200,000 20%
50,000 $2,000,000 25%
250,000 $10,000,000 30%
500,000 $20,000,000 40%
  1. Pricing — You will have the ability to set processing fees on a per race basis. Each online registrant will pay the registration fee charged by the race plus a processing fee. As a partner you will have the ability to charge whatever processing fee you want with our pricing tool, however RunSignUp will retain our standard processing fee less the partner revenue share paid to you. We will be responsible for collecting all registration fees and processing fees. Proceeds from registration fees collected from online registrants will be paid to the race based on the instructions provided to us by the race and under the terms of the RunSignUp race contract. Partner revenue share and any excess processing fees will be sent to you. Examples of partner revenue share calculations with non standard processing fees are as follows:
    • a. If this processing fee is above the standard processing fees, then you will earn that as additional partner revenue share. For example on a $25 race you set a processing fee of $3.10, then you will earn a partner revenue share of $0.50 ($2.50 * 20%) + your uplift over the standard processing fee of $0.60 ($3.10 - $2.50) = $1.10 of total partner revenue share to you. For races that have registration fees greater than $20 and have set a processing fee of 20% or more than the partner revenue share earned will be 5% less than it would be otherwise.
    • b. If this processing fee is less than the standard price, then you will earn only the difference between the standard processing fee less the partner revenue share percentage and the amount you have set. For example on a $25 race you set a processing fee of $2.40, then you will earn a partner revenue share of $0.50 ($2.50 * 20%) - $0.10 ($2.50 - $2.40) = $0.40.
    • c. If this processing fee is less than the standard processing fee less the partner revenue share percentage, then RunSignUp will deduct this difference from the Race Fee. For example on a $25 race you set up a processing fee of $0, then $2.00 will be deducted from the $25 race fee for processing fee costs. This is calculated by Standard processing fee of $2.50 - Partner revenue share of $0.50 (2.50 * 20%) = $2.00.
  2. License to Intellectual Property/Promotion.
    • a. RunSignUp shall retain all right, title and interest in and to its software, trademarks, service marks, logo and trade names worldwide ("Intellectual Property") subject to a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to you necessary to perform this Agreement.
