Code of Conduct

Our mission at RACEPLACE is to help endurance athletes search and save on the best endurance events. To ensure our site visitors the best experience possible, we've created a code of Conduct for event organizers and users to follow in order to participate on our website. We take our code of Conduct very seriously, and if we find it's been violated per the 'inappropriate conduct' below, we will take immediate action. These actions may include editing an event, removing an event, removing a user or event director account or banning an account from publishing further events.

Appropriate Conduct we encourage:

  • Creating endurance events, both virtual and in person. Endurance events include runnning, cycling, adventure, swimming, obstacle, triathlon/multisport events.
  • Celebrating countries, causes, ethnicities, races and cultures.
  • Creating endurance events to which you or your direct partner own the licensed trademarks to.
  • Using unlicensed trademarks, copyrights, images, photos, videos or other intellectual property that infringes the rights of others.
  • Using our event advertising tools to promote your event and other events that you own or operate.

Inappropriate Conduct we discourage:

  • Listing any non-endurance events, promoting any service or products of any kind.
  • Listing an event that's already listed on the calendar by RACEPLACE (ie. duplicate), a RACEPLACE API partner like runsignup.com, active.com, eventbrite.com, raceentry.com or the rightful race owner of that event.
  • Third-party event listing services may not add events to the RACEPLACE calendar that are already listed on the calendar.
  • Selling inappropriate or illegal items that are not reasonably associated with an endurance event.
  • Using unlicensed trademarks, copyrights, images, photos, videos or other intellectual property that infringes the rights of others.
  • Virtual events not bound to a specific location (virtual) are not permitted to add multiple listings of the same event in different locations on the RACEPLACE calendar. For example, a virtual event named 'Virtual Run XYZ' may not add a 'Virtual Run XYZ - California' and 'Virtual Run XYZ - Texas' when that virtual run isn't actually in those locations. This practice of virtual spamming the RACEPLACE calendar is misleading and provides a poor search experience for athletes.
  • Promoting or listing events that include harmful, offensive, hateful, inappropriate, pornographic or illegal activities or events on our site.
  • Listing unprofessional event listings or content with inappropriate language or grammatical errors. Listing any non-endurance events, promoting any service or products of any kind.

If you have any questions about our code of conduct or your situation relative to this matter, please contact us at info@raceplace.com.
