It’s more fun with friends! How the referral program works

Now that you have registered for Florence Forth, invite your friends and family to join you. Florence Forth is a fun community event. It’s even more fun with extra friends around.

Refer 3 Friends; Get $5 back; Repeat

This year, we are offering a new referral program. After registering for Florence Forth, you can encourage your family and friends to run or walk. If they do, you are eligible for money back on your registration.

Here’s how it works. Each person who registers for Florence Forth is assigned a special code (see below) that can be used to refer friends to the race registration. When 3 of your family or friends register for Florence Forth, YOU get $5 back.

You’ll keep getting $5 back for every 3 people who register using your unique referral code until your entire registration fee is refunded. You could run for free!!

Referral Codes: Getting and using yours

There are two ways to get and use your unique referral code.

Option 1: The confirmation email that was sent when you registered has bold text with your “special URL” that serves as the referral code. Here is example text from the confirmation email.

Remember to invite your friends with your special URL (https://runsignup.com/Race/NC/Durham/FlorenceForth10K5K?raceRefCode=OXXX123gI). If they sign up from that link, you are eligible for a refund up to $5.00 after 3 friends sign up.

Find this URL and copy the URL into social media sites or include in an email to friends and family. Let them know you are running the Florence Forth and encourage them to join you. When they click on the link, it will take them to the registration page. You get credit when they register.

Option 2: When logged into your Florence Forth Registration page on RunSignUp, you can click any of the social media buttons to share with family and friends. This will open a window within your social media account and allow you to alter text or images before sharing. The link that is shared contains your referral code.
