Online Registration:

We now offer our OWN, IN-HOUSE, Online Registration for your event through our site.  Here is our NEW fee structure:

MAG 7 SERIES RACES

  • 4% for Credit Card Fee
  • PLUS: $0.85 per entry (Mag 7 race)

NON-MAG 7 SERIES RACES

  • 5% for Credit Card Fee (Non-Mag 7 races)
  • PLUS: $1.00 per entry

Other systems (such as Eventbrite, Active, Sign Me Up, and Event Bee) charge substantially more.  Here are some examples of charges:

  • 2.5% of the ticket price PLUS $0.99 per entry PLUS a 3% processing fee
  • 5% for online fees and for the credit card fees (2% for online charges, 3% or credit card charges) PLUS:  $0.99 per entry

For their “Services” (and substantially higher costs to YOU) each of these systems has access to the DATA from YOUR ENTRIES.  That does NOT occur now.  We control all the data, and that means YOU control the data.

The Mag 7 requires the online fee to be the same as the mail-in fee to be a part of the Mag 7 Race Series.   You MUST use the Mag 7 Online Entry System to be listed as a Mag 7 Race.  Non-Mag 7 races using our service will also be assessed a $50.00 fee for the series.

Mag 7 Voucher:

We require each race to accept the 10% OFF Mag 7 Voucher.  Each entry using the Mag 7 Voucher will receive a discount on the total order of 10%.  The race will get the entry fee minus the 10% discount in their final payout from online fees gathered by the Mag 7.

One of the most requested and used areas of the Mag 7 website is the Race Results page. We are committed to posting results from those races which are a part of our series. Those results may be found on the Race Results tab. The Mag 7 will also make available, when time allows, the posting of non-Mag 7 results. Please provide those results to us through our “Contact Us” tab and we will endeavor to post the results when we are able.

When submitting race results to the Mag 7 please include:

  1. Overall Place
  2. Bib Number
  3. Time
  4. First and Last Name
  5. Age
  6. Male/Female designation
  7. Age Group (if your race has age groups)

This will assist us in assigning Mag 7 Series points to your participants.

For both Mag 7 and non-Mag 7 events: We CANNOT post results if we do not receive them. It is the responsibility of each race director to provide results for posting.

This website was created and is managed by volunteers. We do not control any of the races in the series, we only promote and support the individual races of the series. We work closely with each race director to assure we post the following information prior to every race in the Mag 7 Road Race Series:

  • Event Name
  • Event Date
  • Start Time
  • City in which race is held
  • Race Director name, phone number and email
  • Race flyer or link to downloadable flyer
  • Link to race or online registration website

We have posted a recent article provided by Road Runners Club of America concerning contract basics of running either a club or an event. It is a good primer to help reduce the possiblity of litigation. This document IS NOT a replacement for legal council, it is only a starting resource. You MUST consult an attorney for specific guidance in the matters discussed in this article. You can download this document HERE.
The Mag 7 can provide USAT&F course certification. The cost is as follows:

  • 5K is $300
  • 10K is $500
  • Mini-Marathon is $1,000
  • Marathon is $1,500.

If you are interested in having your course certified, please contact the Mag 7 at info@mag7raceseries.com.  Please have available:

  • Suggested Course Map for your event
  • Plan for on-course volunteer support to protect participants
  • Any event restrictions you may have we should be aware of

The Mag 7 will work with you to determine a SAFE running route, and we will identify areas of concern on your course for which additional support/security is suggested.  We will file the paperwork with the USATF and assure your certification is filed and updated to the USATF website.  Each certification is good for 10 years.
