You've probably already thought of this ... but ..
it would be great to have an online race entry service. Personally I'd be prepared to pay a premium for this as it saves the postage and hassle of remembering to send off the form.
It would also mean our standard profile can be entered so there is minimal effort.
Online payments would save a bunch of hassle for the clubs to as Runners World could bulk EFT monies to the organisers bank account.
As future option you could then post results against profiles meaning subscribers have an online race history.
Would also save a stack of postage and printing costs with organisers sending out hard copy race results afterwards.

John, we are already working on an online entry system. It was the main reason we redesigned the site and set up the intricate profiling for members. Once we know your running details we also plan to advise you of any events that fall within your running preferences by e-mail. The online entry system is in the final stages of testing and we will be up and running (groan!) by the end of the year.

John,

It's making my life misery at the moment. But we're very nearly there.

It should do all the things you mention.

I hope you guys like it.
