Participant Count Pricing for Races

We already introduced pricing based on participant count on a per-event basis. For example the 5K is $5 for the first 25 people and $10 for the next 25 and then $25.

We have expanded this to Race based as well. This aggregates the total number of people across all events. This is configured by clicking on an event’s “Pricing based on Event Size” and then clicking on the Overall Race Options:


And then clicking on the Overall Participant Count option:

Then set up the pricing you want, for the above example:

You would set this pricing up in each event. This gives your the ability to set a $5 price for the 5K and a $10 price for the 10K.

Note this can be done for each registration period – so you could run a big promotion each time your price increases and give a special price for the first 50 people in each registration period.

Remember, the count is done on checkout. If there is only one spot left at $5 and three people all click roughly within 1 second of each other, they may all get the $5 price. If one person clicks a couple of seconds before the other person, then the second person will get an error and the new price will show. They have to enter their credit card number again, but if it a fast selling race and there are few spots at each price level then they may get a second error.
