Racesource FAQ

How can we help?

  • We’re a friendly, family run enterprise so just drop us a message if you need anything.
  • We’re all crazy about all disciplines of the sport of running, so no question is too daft – just ask.
  • We’ve raised money for community causes for over 10 years – all the profit from our events is given away.
  • Hopefully some of the questions below will help you.
  • Are you a local race organiser? We’re looking for local organisers to partner with so we can offer them the advantages of a low cost payment system that will work well for those needing a friendly and personal service. More
  • Interlocking sets of bespoke enamelled medals.
  • Family run local enterprise.
  • Proper running challenges, created in Yorkshire.
  • Each challenge pushes you a bit further with each stage
  • Spot prizes and winner prizes.
  • Profits from our Virtual challenges go to local causes eg schools and community venues (usually we use these as HQs for our real life events.)
  1. Log in to this website. Clicking the log in with facebook is by far the easiest way.
  2. Navigate to the Submit Results page and submit the form. Be sure to include a hyperlink to Strava or Garmin connect. If you don’t have that, you can provide a photo as evidence.
  3. You will receive an email confirming your submission, and another when your result has been approved by one of our admins.

Your route should be at least 90% off road to count in our Trail leaderboard.

No! You can run further than the specified distance if you like. If you are a bit short, you can still submit but won’t be eligible for leaderboard prizes. You can still get a spot prize.

Anyone can win spot prizes but we do ask that you are an active member of our facebook group, posting at least one photo during the period of the challenge.

Just enter the name of your club or team when you submit your results. We will be watching these carefully when we work out spot prizes, especially (socially distanced) team photos.

Are you an Event Organiser? We can currently offer two options to support you.

Option 1: Use Racesource for your race entry system. We are cheaper than other entry systems because we’re a friendly family business just looking to help others put on low cost running events. Your event would be listed on Racesource.run. We can also process and list all your event results and offer a bespoke landing page design for your event, matching your own identity eg www.racesource.run/yourownracename. With this option we would receive fees on your behalf and pass payments on to you as per an agreed time scale. Contact [email protected]

Option 2: We create you an event website and install your own payment system onto the site. This would use the same technology as racesource.run but would be entirely hosted on your site. This is cheaper than you think, especially if you are moving an existing website – contact us for options [email protected]

Event Organisers

Are you an Event Organiser? We can currently offer two options to support you. Both can facilitate real and ‘virtual’ running events.

Option 1: Low cost race entries and free results listing

Use Racesource for your race entry system. We are cheaper than other entry systems because we’re a friendly family business just looking to help others put on low cost running events. Your event would be listed on Racesource.run. We can also process and list all your event results and offer a bespoke landing page design for your event, matching your own identity eg www.racesource.run/yourownracename. With this option we would receive fees on your behalf and pass payments on to you as per an agreed time scale. Contact [email protected]

Option 2: Your own Event Entry and Results Service

We create you an event website and install your own payment system onto the site. We’re experienced working with running event companies and running clubs. Your new site would use the same technology as racesource.run but would be entirely hosted on your site. This is cheaper than you think, especially if you are moving an existing website – contact us for options [email protected]
