Guidelines for the inclusion of non-CORC run events
Not for profit events
MTB clubs and organisations’ running not for profit events are encouraged to submit their events for inclusion in the CORC calendar.
These events need to be:
- directly related to mountain biking likely to be of interest to the CORC members
- run on a not for profit basis
- a special event (ie not your club’s regular races series)
- be in locations our members could reasonable get to
All events submitted will be assessed on their merits and selected events will be posted free of charge.
CORC does include events run by commercial promoters in the calendar. These need to compliment CORC’s activities and be compatible with our existing sponsorship relationships. This means that events that could be seen as direct competitors to CORC run events, like the Scott Australian 24 Hour MTB Championships, would not be considered. There are fees associated with advertising commercially run events. Small events, such as one of skills camps, are $25 per listing. Larger events, such as one day and 24 hour races, cost $50 per listing. CORC also has number of other promotional opportunities including; two banner style advertising spaces available on the homepage, Tweeter feeds and two popular Facebook groups. Please contact the CORC webmaster to discuss options and pricing.
