For example, The Summer Fun Run Series hosted by Summer Fun INC. includes 3 events. The organisers believe they will have around 250 participants per event. This means Summer Fun INC. will have a total of 750 participants for the season. If Jane chooses to run in races one and three, she will be counted as a participant for BOTH race one, and race three. Therefore, Summer Fun INC. falls under a Tier 3 Affiliation.

Please note: groups which host more that 5 events in a year will be charged an administration fee of $150 for events 6-10, and a further fee of $150 will be added for groups hosting more than 11 events within the season.
