Fair fees calculator

 Have you ever wondered if you are paying too much money when you sign up for a running event? Nowadays even the entry fee for a 5k race seems to have skyrocketed out of control. True, many road races are benefiting charities, many feature music bands, pre- and post-race parties, technical T-shirts for everyone, and big shiny medals. What happened to the simple days, when you could participate just for the pure joy of running in an organized event with other runners like you? Worry not. Thousands of races worldwide still offer the opportunity of registering for cheap, without receiving any prize, at a symbolic price that covers the pure no-frills costs.

We at are now glad to bring you our unique calculator that rates events based on price, currency and distance. Enter these three simple parameters to find out if your event falls into one of the four ratings - Best Value, Great Value, Fair Market Value, or Expensive. Just like coupon codes are a great way to save money when you register for a running race, identifying low cost-per-mile or low cost-per-kilometer events is definitely another smart alternative for your wallet. And we promise you - you'll run happier when you know that each step of the way is only costing you a few cents.

But wait, there is more! If you are an organizer and your event is rated "Best Value" let us know so we can promote it on our site for free. At the end of the day, it is all about finding ways to spend less and run more.
