Since 2016 payments for race fees, charitable donations, and pledges have been available as Electronic Funds Transfers (EFT) instead of cheques. EFTs are safe, secure, and fast and are a preferred way for races and charities to receive their funds. Effective August 16, 2017 Running Room no longer offers cheques as a payment method for Canadian dollar funds to bank accounts within Canada. If your race or charity is already set up for EFT then you’re all set and there is no change to how you have been receiving funds from Running Room. However, if you are used to receiving cheques you are required to submit an EFT Authorization form for direct deposit to receive your payments after August 16, 2017. Please download this form and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Race Directors are responsible for informing their Charity Directors of this procedure.
