What is dryland rewards?
Dryland Event Management is excited to announce the launch of the Dryland Rewards program. Over the years, Dryland has had incredible support from riders and runners from all over the world and the time has come to reward this loyalty. Athletes stand the chance to qualify for between 5% and 60% value back on their event entries, with the higher tiers qualifying for even more benefits.
Many of our loyal supporters take part in multiple Dryland events in a calendar year and often across different disciplines. We want to give value back as a reward and offer a discount structure on the entry fee during phase one, as well as a discount on certain products and services from our various partners during phase two.
The level of value back offered is determined by the rider/runner’s qualifying tier level. The opening tier levels are determined by the number of events the participant successfully completed during the last complete run of events.
This is a dynamic process and tier levels will change as the results of the different events are released. In other words, the relevance of an event result will expire as soon as the next event the following year takes place and subsequent results are confirmed.
How to earn points
The tiers work on a point system determined by the relative weight of an event compared to other events. The event weight is determined primarily by a combination of the number of riding/running days and the level of difficulty. Please see the events and the respective weighting below:
New events will not automatically be included within the system. In some instances, it may take up to 12 months to introduce a current event to the portfolio. A maximum of 265 points can be obtained for the coming season.
The launch of the Rewards program will see all riders and runners who have already entered an event at the full entry fee, and thus not being able to benefit from the Rewards discount, receiving a virtual discount voucher per the respective event.
Please see the tier structure below in points with the qualifying discount for an entry in the last row:
An added benefit is on the cards in the near future for athletes on the top tiers whereby they will qualify for automatic accommodation upgrades, complimentary bike transport, technical back up or sports massages. In some instances, the top tier levels will even qualify for complimentary flights to and from the events.
We will also see the launch of the Rewards Partners from whom participants can then obtain certain discounts, services or value back when purchasing goods online. A list of participants will be issued with the related tier levels and then each individual has a limited time (please see the T&C’s below) to verify the results and submit queries should it be necessary.
