RaceGate is a web site for runners, swimmers, bikers, surfers, sailors, triathletes--16 groups of enthusiasts so far--who pay fees to join in 310,000 sporting events around the world. Combined, these athletes spend about $15 billion on event registration fees, travel, equipment, clothes and food.

The web site is scheduled to have a formal launch this fall.
