Welcome to the Bid Process for the 2026 Satellite Championship Race Series

There are 3 levels of races that enable any runner to qualify for the World Individual Championships in 2027;
One goal for 2027 (or 2025) is to expand the capacity of the Individual World Championship venue so that all Satellite Champions will have a spot.


When you are selected there will be a small charge, which will vary depending on your individual situation and the level of the event. This money will be used to ship the bronze, silver, and gold coins to the races. Given the variation in the cost of shipping, some races will be paying more than the cost of obtaining the coin and shipping it and some will be paying less.
If any funds remain after shipping, they will be applied to the World Individual Championships, which run at a huge loss!
When your bid is accepted you will receive notification in the form of an Invitation, which you have to accept in order for the transaction to be complete. So you will not be charged any amount without approving it first.
