Thanksgiving has become a big day for races.
Just as we are seeing an increase in Thanksgiving Day Races, we believe runner demand for notifications is increasing. Turkey day was also a big day for us to gauge how our new Results 3.0 system is working for customers. A few quick facts:
- Total RunSignup Registration for Thanksgiving Day: 184 Races, 121,000 Registered Runners
- Total Results posted to RunSignup: 55,390
- Total Races utilizing Notifications: 23
- Total Notifications Sent: 31,000+
If you have a Race that is using notifications, you can view a Notification report like this one to compare SMS and email notification opt-ins.
Also interesting to see from our Thanksgiving day surge:
- During peak hour, we were experiencing about 300 requests per minute, over half of which were from Mobile devices.
- The average page load time remained consistent throughout the peak times.
