50% of the gross sales from all virtual race registrations will go to the organization or business who purchased the virtual race program. Program pays out on the last Friday of every month. Price of the virtual race is typically situated at $24.95 but not below. Badass Running Company pays for all packaging and first class package with tracking as well as all processing and credit card fees.
Virtual Runs create additional branding for your organization or charity, you'll reach new audiences and channels that will clearly see your causes and come to understand your mission. However, that's a bonus, the primary target of a virtual run is to create funding. All virtual races when completely sold out are expected to provide more than double the initial program cost. In other words, a $1,995 program, with it's 50% split can PROFIT more than $3000 for the program purchaser. This number doubles and quadruples for the 500 and 1000 registration races. Depending on the additional donations offered by the registrants through the Strong Donation Program (detailed below) this number can be substantially higher.
HOW SPONSORS PAY FOR THE PROGRAM...
Most charitable organizations find they can get businesses or personal sponsors to help pay or completely pay for the cost of the program. On most medals you can have two sponsor logos lasered into the back of the medal and up to two printed on the ribbon of the medal. It's not difficult to charge $500 or more for each of these placements as a sponsorship. By doing this, the organization profits over $3000 on a 250 person race and that doesn't count the additional dollars from the Strong Donation Program detailed below. Do a successful 500 person race and the profit numbers can be truly substantial!

DESIGN & OTHER DETAILS...
Badass Running Company retains all rights to the Medal Design, Advertisements and all Marketing Materials created for use in the event. We provide an initial medal and bib design plus 1 additional modification at the initial cost of this program. Additional design work is calculated at $100 per hour. Medal will have Badass Running Company's Logo and URL on the back and most medals have the ability to have a second Medal Sponsor’s Logo and URL engraved on the back. This is also the case with the ribbon which allows for a logo at the top of the neck. Many organizations find this a great way to get a sponsor for their virtual race.
Once both Badass Running Company and the purchaser of the program agree to the design of the medal and race bib the full program payment is fully binding and may not be refunded under any circumstances. Should no agreement be reached a $250 design charge shall be deducted from any refund.
